INGREDIENTS

SALT & PEPPER

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8–1/2 teaspoon black

CINNAMON SUGAR

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

SWEET & SPICY

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Per half cup of seeds, toss with about a teaspoon of olive oil (you could also use coconut oil, grape-seed oil, avocado oil), and then toss immediately afterward with the spice combo you’d like…

Then spread the seeds out on the prepared baking sheet. You’ll want to give the seeds some room to breathe, so make sure there isn’t more than one layer. Pop them in the oven, and bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring two to three times during cooking.
You’ll know the seeds are ready when they are beginning to brown. You don’t want them super dark, just a little golden (and if a few get darker, that’s fine). If you taste them hot out of the oven, they may seem a little chewy still, but as they cool, they will crisp up nicely.
