S+S+S Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Salty, Sweet, & Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know pumpkin is pretty much out for the year, but it's my favoritest favorite thing and I just can't get enough.. and its' seeds are pretty awesome too. The other day I was annoyed that I didn't have "snack" food around the house. I'm a snacker, whoops. So I was at the fruit and veggie stand near my apartment and large bags of pumpkin seeds behind the cash register caught my eye. Perfect snack- unsalted of course. Once I got home I realized that they were already roasted however. But this turned out to be perfect! They were roasted naked, so they had no flavor so I could do ANYTHING to them, aaaand they would take less time in the oven. Dopee. So I went to town- 1 normal average salty batch, 1 with a kick, and 1 cinnabon cinnamon flavor. Boom. Sticky cinnamon minus the cahbs, buttah, sugah, n guilt.
