Maple, Vanilla and Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Seeds

Updated: Nov 5, 2018

This recipe is a result of a craving I had for something sweet, salty and crunchy and of course, we are at the beginning of pumpkin-everything season. I love pumpkin seeds, because they're delicious, but they're also a plant-based complete protein, meaning pumpkin seeds contain all nine essential amino acids. They're also a source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and zinc. Most store-bought candied nuts and seeds are loaded with sugar, trans fats and sodium, so I tried to make own so that I could control the ingredients - and they came out fabulous! I'm going to be bookmarking this recipe for simple, DIY gifts to bring when attending holiday parties, or as a party favor of my own (and I'll also be keeping these in my pantry to snack on)!
