Maple Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds

Maple Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds

I love carving pumpkins in the fall. My sister and I used to do with our grandfather every year as kids and those memories are so happy for me. Amalia loves anything and everything Halloween-related with pumpkins and Jack-o-Lanterns high on the list.

She insisted on carving one early this year, so I of course had to make one of my favorite fall treats, toasted maple cinnamon pumpkin seeds! They take about 5 minutes of prep time and will make your entire house smell amazing as they bake.


– 2 cups (ish) pumpkin seeds, washed and dried
– 3 tbspn melted butter
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1 tbspn maple syrup
– Sugar for sprinkling (I use coconut palm sugar)

1. Preheat oven to 300.
2. Mix butter with cinnamon, salt, and maple syrup.
3. Pour over pumpkin seeds in a large bowl and toss to coat.
4. Spread pumpkin seed mixture on a cookie sheet in one layer
5. Bake for 40 minutes, flipping once or twice
6. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sugar
7. As soon as they cool, enjoy!

    Hi, wish we could get back to more traditional Lemon Stripes posts! I feel like everything since August has been super short and sweet / linked posts!

    Sorry if there are things happening behind the scenes that contribute to this, but looking forward to more of the regular content, if you are able!
