Simple Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

 Every year I make my own pumpkin puree, and every year I am leftover with crazy amounts of pumpkin seeds. I have tried several different flavours now, but I always find myself coming back to this one. It is so simple, that it is hard for me to even call it a "recipe," but I thought I'd post it anyways. My daughter and I snacked on this all afternoon. Sometimes simper is just better!

2 cups dried pumpkin seeds (from 2 medium pumpkins)
1-2 teaspoons olive oil 
sea salt


Place dried pumpkin seeds in a medium sized bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Place the seed mixture on a pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, stir and bake another 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. You will hear the seeds popping and crackling in the oven - this is a good thing! Once done, remove, cool and enjoy! - Alex
