Cinnamon Coconut Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipe Follow Me on Pinterest

When it comes to these cinnamon coconut roasted pumpkin seeds, I seriously have to control myself. It is really easy for me to sit down and eat an entire bowl in one sitting! So, I have to portion out how much I can eat at a time to keep me from going overboard. They are just. that. good.

To me, roasting pumpkin seeds after you’ve gutted a pumpkin seems like the easiest and most natural thing to do. But, I am constantly amazed at how many people I talk to who don’t know how to do it. So, that is why I wanted to share this recipe. It’s super easy and delicious. You’ll wonder why you always threw those seeds away! The spices can always be adjusted to suit your preference. As a matter of fact, pumpkin pie spice tastes AMAZING on these as well, so if you’re in the mood, you could throw some of that in there too!

Now, a quick note. I personally soak these seeds first for 24 hours before roasting. I am not sure that it really does any good, considering that they still have the outside shell on. However, I do it just out of habit. Feel free to skip this step. Or, if you want, you can shell the pumpkin seeds (a lot of work) and then soak them like you would any other seed. Since you probably won’t be eating these all the time, it is not going to hurt to skip the soaking. It really is up to you.

  1. Sounds good! Do you consider these a low-carb snack?

    • Coincidentally, I was just researching magnesium rich foods this morning b/c I’ve been getting foot cramps for about a year. Pumpkin seeds are loaded! Squash and pumpkin seeds provide 535 mg of magnesium (134% DV) per 100 gram serving, or 738mg (185% DV) per cup.

    • I do — I try not to overdo it with any form of nut or seed, because they can be kind of hard to digest, plus it’s easy to eat too many! But, they have been a nice little treat. Something different :) Hope you enjoy!

  2. I definitely want to try this…but have always been told (not for any particular reason that I know of) that we should peel them first…which I never have time to do, hence why I never have roasted them before. But…you seem to eat the peel once roasted without any issues – so I’m assuming it is not a problem to eat the peel?

    • Andrea – I personally don’t have any issues eating the seeds with the outer skin still on (digestively speaking). Honestly, I’m not going to sit and peel all those seeds — that would take forever! :) I figure that I only make these once a year and it is such a small amount that I choose to save some work and leave the skins on.
