Mustard Onion Pumpkin Seeds

Mustard Onion Pumpkin Seeds


2 cups


  • 1/4 cup C&H® Demerara Cane Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons dehydrated minced onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon hot mustard powder
  • 2 cups fresh pumpkin seeds, washed and drained of excess water


Preheat oven to 300 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a small pot or microwaveable bowl, combine all ingredients together except the pumpkin seeds and heat, stirring occasionally, just until sugar dissolves and butter melts.

Add the pumpkin seeds and toss until well coated.

Spread pumpkin seeds with any excess coating out in a single layer on the sheet pan and roast 45 minutes, turning and tossing mixture once or twice while roasting. Continue to roast, if necessary, until seeds are dry and golden brown.

Serve seeds warm or store up to 1 week in a covered container. Seeds may be reheated at 200 F. for 10 minutes before serving. For best results, do not microwave to re-heat.


Grease tongs when tossing the seeds to keep the coating from sticking to the tongs.
