Pumpkin seeds, also known as Pepitas, are a very nutritious source of monounsaturated fats and dietary fibre. They are also high in iron and a rich source of magnesium which is a vital electrolyte that is important on the ketogenic diet.
When roasted they become deliciously crunchy and are perfect to scatter over salads.
Please be aware though that it is very easy to overdo it when snacking on pepitas, so weigh out your serving and stick to it.
I have included both a sweet and savoury roasted pepitas recipe below. I’d love to know which one you liked best. Enjoy!
