Pepitas—AKA pumpkin seeds—add delicious crunch whatever you add them to.
Toss them with coconut oil, honey, and cinnamon, and you get even more warm, deep flavor in every bite.
They’re perfect to sprinkle on fall salads, butternut squash soup, and even desserts like a healthy chocolate pudding.
Of course, you can also just keep a bag in your purse and grab a handful when you need a quick, yummy, nutritious snack.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Pepitas are rich in a few important, tricky-to-find nutrients, like magnesium (which plays a role in bone health, sleep, and PMS) and zinc (which is important for brain health and thyroid function). When you dress them up a little, you’re more likely to add them to your diet.
