Carving pumpkins for Halloween? Save the seeds for this easy recipe. Honey roasted pumpkin seeds are a great snack to have on hand all fall. The recipe includes instructions for fresh and store-bought pumpkin seeds.


  • 1 Pumpkin - seeds removed {about 1-2 cups}
  • Honey
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon - Optional
  • Cooking Spray


  1. If using fresh pumpkin seeds, scoop out the inside pulp and place in a bowl. Run the seeds under cold water and remove all the pulp. Place on a paper towel to dry. 
  2. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. 
  3. Add the honey to a bowl and place it in the microwave for 5 seconds to soften. 
  4. Add the pumpkin seeds and sprinkle with salt and cinnamon. Toss to coat the seeds in honey fully. 
  5. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking oil. Add the pumpkins seeds and spread them into a single-layer.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy. Flip the seeds halfway through the cooking process and check periodically to ensure the honey is not burning. 
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to fully cool.   
  8. Store in an airtight container. 


For store-bought pumpkin seeds, follow the directions above, but only cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
