Pumpkin Seed Makeover: Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Aired October 23, 2009

Serves Makes 2 cups
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together egg whites, sugar, cayenne, cinnamon and salt. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss to coat.

Spread seeds in a single layer across the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Stir them up a bit and pop them back into the oven until golden in color, about 5 minutes more. Taste and season with more salt if needed.
