- 2 cups pumpkin seeds, raw (2 medium sugar pumpkins)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter

- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt, ground
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, ground

- Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until seeds are lightly browned.
- Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes and enjoy!
- Store in an air-tight container for one to two weeks, although they don't last that long in our house. :).
