Whether for a snack or to top your favorite salad, these pumpkins seeds are amazing and take a fraction of the time to roast! As a kid I remember sheet pans filled with pumpkin seeds and waiting for what felt like forever for them to roast in the oven.
Sadly, now that my girls are older, we don’t carve pumpkins anymore. Last year, I decided to “roast” pumpkin seeds in my air fryer.
Pumpkin seeds olive oil spray kosher salt freshly ground black pepper Then using a slotted spoon, scoop up the floating seeds and transfer to a colander.
Spray with olive oil and season with a generous pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. An air fryer is a counter top appliance that requires less oil (anything from a few spritz to 1 tablespoon) yet produces crispy food that rivals most deep-fried foods.
By using circulating hot air, it moves at a high speed so the food tends to cook in a fraction of the time. There are a bunch of different makes and models of air fryers.
My husband did the research (as he’s known to do) and found this air fryer to be one of the best. Air frying is healthier because only a thin layer of oil coats the food and when the hot air comes in contact it will crisp.
Saving you a ton of fat and calories (without sacrificing any flavor!) Because food is not being submerged in a vat of hot oil.
Pumpkin seeds olive oil spray kosher salt freshly ground black pepper Slice of the stem to your pumpkin and cut in half from top to bottom.
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the seed to a colander set into your sink. Pat dry with paper towel and transfer to a sheet pan lined with a clean kitchen towel.
Paper towel will eventually stick to the seeds and leave some lint stuck to them. Spray the dried pumpkin seeds with olive oil spray and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Once preheated, arrange the seeds into the air rear in a single layer (best as possible) and air fry for 10 minutes. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
I’m sharing this “recipe” so when the time rolls around again next year I can remember how I made them. First things first: in order to make these airfryerpumpkinseeds you got a have an air fryer.
My favorite is the basket that can rotate inside; I use it for so many things: French fries, diced potatoes, brussels sprouts with bacon, etc., and now pumpkin seeds ! We had a whopping four cups of seeds, so I divided them up evenly and created four seasonings: garlic, salt and paper, chili lime, and cinnamon sugar.
After you carve your pumpkins toss the seeds into the air fryer for a crisp snack! Carving and cleaning out the pulp and seeds of a pumpkin can truly be a sensory experience.

Yummy, I just ate a handful of these, are they came out of the air fryer, nice warm and salty, awesome. This month and next month it is all about pumpkins on my website, ForkToSpoon.com, so I thought why not have a really classic fall classic, roasted pumpkin seeds, whether you get them directly out of the pumpkin or you buy them at the local grocery store.
Then I added some to a small bowl, mixed in some olive oil. Spread them out an even layer, since items in the air fryer tend to cook better, that way.
Placed them into the air fryer oven and constantly opened it up, and moved them around with my hand spatula (wood) These are an amazing snack, either you get them directly from your carved pumpkin (fresh) or purchase them at a store.
