Most of you are buying Halloween pumpkins to carve and decorate. In the process of prepping the pumpkin you’re going to get a bunch of pumpkin seeds. However, most people don’t know what to do with them, so unfortunately they usually end up in the trash.
The pumpkin seeds do not need to go to this inglorious end; not when you can use them to make these delicious treats.

If you bought a pumpkin that you didn’t use for carving, you may want to roast your pumpkin, so you can use the flesh for pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie or any other number of treats and desserts.
Don’t have a pumpkin? Don’t worry; you can always buy hulled, raw pumpkin seeds at your local grocery or health food store.
