Recipe created by: Jennifer Walter
  • Recipe is per 100g of pumpkin seeds
  • 100 g washed pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp. cardamom
  • 2 pinches of: salt, nutmeg, ground ginger
  1. Preheat your oven to 150 degrees C and line a baking tray with parchment. Now, to the pumpkin seeds. Place them in a colander. Under running water, clean all the pumpkin fibers off with your hands. This will take a couple of minutes but don't skip this step. When they're clean, place them in a bowl of water and let them rest for a couple of minutes. Now all the remaining fibers will sink to the bottom, while the seeds float atop (a little everyday magic). Pat the seeds dry and place them in dry bowl. Now add the maple syrup and stir the seeds well until they're covered evenly. In a small bowl or glass, mix all the spices together and toss them into the syrup covered seeds. Mix it all well and distribute evenly onto your baking tray, making sure you only create one layer of seeds. Now bake for 30 minutes, but move the seeds around every 10 minutes. Let them cool off.
