Chili Lime Pumpkin Seeds

  • Author: Allis
  • Total Time: 26 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


Zesty pumpkin seeds with a little spice.


  • 2 cups of pumpkin seeds (brined or add ½ teaspoon of salt with the seasonings)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (roughly the juice from half a lime)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Preheat the oven to 325˚F (160˚C).
  2. Use a silicone mat to help with sticking and place it on a cooking sheet.
  3. Add the seeds to the mat, then add the juice, olive oil, chili powder, cumin, and salt (if the seeds are not brined).
  4. Toss to combine.
  5. Roast for 12 minutes, then stir, then roast for another 10-15 minutes.
  6. The seeds should no longer be translucent, they’ll be firm to the touch, and start to brown slightly.
  7. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Let them cool completely before storing them.


The time for roasting will vary depending on how big the seeds are, keep a close eye on them so they don't burn.

Use raw pumpkin seeds that still have a shell on them.  If you substitute with pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) roast for around 10-12 minutes, stirring halfway.
