    We’re well into fall and Halloween is just around the corner. That means we’re well into pumpkin season, and that doesn’t just mean pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin pie.

    In my family, we’ve always decorated with pumpkins outside during this time of year and then you have everyone’s second favorite Halloween activity….pumpkin carving!

    Carving pumpkins has always been one of my favorite fall activities and it’s one I’m looking forward to sharing with my daughter.

    But after the pumpkins have been carved, what do you do with the pumpkin “guts”? Make roasted pumpkin seeds, of course!

    How to roast pumpkin seeds is actually super easy. To make roasted pumpkin seeds, just coat them with butter, spread them on a baking pan rimmed with foil and roast in the oven. I turn them halfway so that both sides get evenly toasted.

    Plain roasted pumpkin seeds are delicious. However,  once I figured out how to roast pumpkin seeds, I wanted to get a bit more creative and try out other flavors.

    I love ranch-flavored anything and since pumpkin seeds don’t have a strong flavor, I thought ranch pumpkin seeds might be delicious.

    I was right.

    There are only 3 ingredients in these Ranch Pumpkin Seeds – pumpkin seeds, butter, and Ranch dressing mix. Just 40 minutes and a tiny bit of prep work to perfect roasted pumpkin seeds.

    Roasted pumpkin seeds make a great fall snack. Even just a handful of them are full of nutrients and I find them to be quite filling. Ranch pumpkin seeds are full of flavor too!

    I love snacking on these right out of the oven but they taste great when held at room temperature too.

    Questions about how to make pumpkins seeds:

    Can I freeze pumpkin seeds? You sure can! Just make sure you put them in an airtight plastic bag. They tend to get freezer burnt a little faster than other foods, so use them within 3 months.

    How do I store roasted pumpkins seeds? In an airtight container at room temperature.

    Are pumpkin seeds healthy? I loathe this questions. The honest answer is that I am not a nutrition professional and the definition of “healthy” is different for everyone. Especially these days with so many specialty diets.

    Scroll on down and check out the nutritional information to judge for yourself.

    If you want to make them even healthier, omit the melted butter and use a whisked egg white instead to bond the seasoning to your seeds.

    Are pumpkins seeds gluten free? This recipe is gluten free.
