Sweet n Smokey Pumpkin Seeds

I  love the flavors of fall!  Apples, Pumpkins, Butternut Squash...

Here's a twist on Pumpkin Seeds.  These are actually "pepitas" from the local health food store.  We haven't carved a pumpkin yet, but I really like these and I use them in my granola.

2 cups pumpkin seeds
1 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp chile powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika (not regular paprika)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 300.  Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.  Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Toast until seeds are golden and crunchy, about 20 minutes, stirring half way through.
