Recipe: Crunchy Munchy Sunflower & Pumpkin Seeds
I had some sweetened, roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds and they were so yummy I thought I'd see if I could make them myself. I looked online for inspiration and after trying a few things, this is what I ended up with.
They are very munchy and more-ish, and approved by 100% of three-year-olds (that live in this house).
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbspn butter
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
Melt the butter and sugar in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the seeds and stir well. Keep cooking for 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until the seeds are all lovely and toasted and golden brown. Pour out onto a sheet of tin foil and leave to cool. Try not to eat all at once.
(this is also very yummy with desiccated coconut instead of the pumpkin seeds)
