  • ½ cup pepitas See Note 1
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil See Note 2
  • 2 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce See Note 3


  • Preheat your oven to 180 Degrees C (355F).
  • Line a small baking sheet with baking paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the pepitas, olive oil and tamari, and stir well to combine.
  • Put the pepitas in a single layer on the baking tray.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, tossing half way through to ensure they roast evenly. Be careful not to burn!
  • Remove from the oven, and allow to cool slightly before consuming.


  1. Be sure to purchase natural pepitas, and not ones that have already been roasted.
  2. I like using olive oil in this recipe, but any neutral oil will work fine.
  3. I use tamari, as I love the flavour, and it also means it can be enjoyed by people who are unable to eat gluten. You can certainly use regular soy sauce if you prefer.
  4. Please note, the nutritional information is based on two servings of approximately ¼ cup.
