  • Pinch of ground allspice
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
2 cups


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together all ingredients in a bowl. Spread mixture in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake until pepitas are golden and slightly puffed, about 10 minutes. Season with salt. Stir gently, leaving some clumps. Transfer to a bowl; let cool completely.
