Perfectly Savory Pumpkin Seeds

These little creations came out of a need for a savory, salty snack – PLUS wanting something pumpkin-themed during the 21 Day Sugar Detox. I picked up some raw pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) in a bulk bin at the store for super cheap, slathered them with butter, played around with some spices, roasted, and BAM – delicious, crunchy, savory snack! These have just a little bit of a zing from the cayenne pepper, but they are not spicy (I don’t like food too spicy)! So if you like your food hot, feel free to add more.
