Barbecue Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe: A Healthy, Crunchy Fall Snack Recipe

I love all things fall, including pumpkins and toasted pumpkin seeds. Did you know pumpkins seeds are good for you? Here's just a few health benefits of pumpkin seeds:

  • They are rich in many antioxidants, which protect our cells from disease-causing damage and reduce inflammation in our bodies.
  • They are high in magnesium. Magnesium helps regulate blood sugar levels, lowering your diabetes risk.
  • Laboratory studies show they can stop the growth of breast and prostate cancer cells. They also induce apoptosis or cancer cell death.

I’ve made roasted pumpkin seeds in a variety of different ways over the years. This barbecue pumpkin seeds recipe is my current favorite recipe. They're perfect for snacking!

Cuisine: American 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: Makes about 1 cup


  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sweet and smoky barbecue sauce (or your favorite barbecue sauce)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine pumpkin seeds, barbecue sauce and olive oil together in a bowl. Spread seeds in an even single layer on a baking sheet
  2. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 7 to 9 minutes, until toasted, watching carefully to avoid burning. Remove from baking sheet and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
