Fall is a great time of the year to start making delicious pumpkin seeds! Although I generally will buy these delicious seeds year round at my local grocery stores! It's nice to have these on hand as they also can be a great peanut butter or nut alternative if you can have seeds in your diet. Plus I like to have them on hand when a craving strikes.
We also have some recipes in our Dessert Recipe Cook Book using this wonderful seed, we made our own version of a PB chocolate cup however peanut butter free!
These seeds are a great source of zinc, which is a mineral that may help to prevent osteoporosis. This seed also contains manganese and magnesium, potassium, vitamins E and B. This seed also contains protein and fiber.
