I am obsessed with these pumpkin seeds. Little sweet, little spice, little lime-tang.
See why I’m obsessed?
If you have never roasted your own pumpkin seeds, you are missing out. This recipe and sweet-spice combination is just perfect and I highly recommend using this recipe when you roast your own seeds.
I gave instructions on how to store any that you don’t eat…but my guess is that the entire bowl will be demolished in one shot 😉
Chili Lime Pumpkin Seeds
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp turbinado sugar (brown sugar would also work)
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 cups pumpkin seeds
- 2 limes, zested and juiced
- In a medium saute pan, heat the coconut oil over medium high heat.
- Stir in turbinado sugar or brown sugar, chili powder, and pumpkin seeds and combine all ingredients until the seeds are evenly coated.
- Cook on medium high heat until seeds are light golden brown and the sugar is lightly caramelized. This will happen very quickly. Watch closely and stir continually to prevent overcooking.
- Remove from heat and stir in lime juice and zest.
- Spread onto parchment paper to cool completely.
- Enjoy at room temperature. If you have any left over, store in an airtight container for up to a week at room temperature.
