"No Vampires" Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories)


This is what I look forward to every fall/Halloween! It's my once a year treat/guilty pleasure!

This is the ONLY way I'll eat my roasted pumpkin seeds.

But, you either love them or you hate them. I had a friend who couldn't make up her mind if she liked them or not. In the process, she almost ate them all! I think she liked them!!!

    pumpkin seeds, out of 3 - 4 pumpkins (the larger the better)

How to Make "No Vampires" Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Gut out pumpkins putting the seeds in a large bowl. It's ok if you get that gookie orange goop with it - it adds flavor.
  3. Rinse seeds (& goop).
  4. Roll out seeds onto baking sheet & spread out evenly.
  5. Cut butter into tbsp chunks & place in random areas all over seeds.
  6. Load it totally with garlic salt &/or garlic powder (I do both).

    NOTE: You'll know if you've done this right when it's cooking. If you did it right...your eyes should be burning/watering from all the garlic.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes; stir. Bake another 30 minutes; stir. Bake another 15 minutes; stir. Bake another 15 minutes (they should be done at this point). Keep doing this until seed turn a light to medium brown (like the photo or little darker).
  8. Once done, let cool for 30 minutes & then enjoy!

Store bought roasted seeds are pretty good, but nothing is like homemade roasted pumpkin seeds. The toasted nutty flavor is so addictive, you’ll have a hard time keeping your hand...
