  • Author: by Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD
  • Yield: 1/2 cup. 1x


An easy and delicious snack that’s as simple as roasting the seeds from any type of squash with cinnamon sugar and cayenne pepper.


  • 1/2 cup butternut squash, spaghetti squash or acorn squash seeds
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Coat baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together oil, sugar, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Add the seeds and toss well. Evenly spread seeds out on tray.
  4. Roast for about 15 – 20 minutes, stirring a few times (keep a close eye on them as they can burn quickly.)
  5. Cool and serve.
