Cinnamon Honey Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)

Submitted by: BFLYLADY5

Introduction

The recipe starts with a pound of raw pepitas (green pumpkin seeds without the hulls). Since the only other caloric ingredient is a little honey, you basically end up with flavored pepitas calories. This recipe can also be used with regular pumpkin seeds, but my husband prefers the seeds without the hulls. The recipe starts with a pound of raw pepitas (green pumpkin seeds without the hulls).

Ingredients

    one pound pepitas/pumpkin seeds
    1/8 C honey (1 oz.)
    1/8 C warm water
    1 to 2 T cinnamon
    a sprinkle of sea salt, to taste

Directions

Put the pepitas in a half gallon jar or gallon zipper plastic bag. Throughly blend the honey and water together; pour it over the pepitas. Close container and shake until pepitas are moistened. Add cinnamon and mix again.

Put pepita mix on large non-stick baking pan (I use parchment paper). Lightly sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. If you do a smaller batch, cut the baking time down too. If you use whole seeds straight from the pumpkin, rinse and clean them, and skip the water in the recipe if they're still moist.

Makes about sixteen 1/4 cup servings.
