Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
I usually prefer the salty, savory kind of pumpkin seed like my worcestershire sauce and sea salt. Or if I want a slightly sweet pumpkin seed I’ll reach for my pumpkin spice and coconut sugar. Occasionally, I want some with a bit of a kick so I’ll enjoy my chili lime roasted pumpkin seeds. But some times you just want something that is SWEET like my brown sugar and cinnamon pumpkin seeds.
