  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds cleaned of pulp, if used from fresh pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon pimenton smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven 300°F
  • Spread out seeds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour the hot seeds into the sriracha mixture and stir to coat well. Return the seeds to the baking sheet, spreading them out as best you can - they'll be sticky. Bake for 5-10 additional minutes to caramelize the sauce on the seeds.
  • Remove from the oven and cool. Devour at will.
  • If not consuming immediately, spread out the seeds on a cooled baking sheet and allow to set up a bit before packaging. (Otherwise, they'll tend to stick together in all of their caramelized goodness.)
