Ranch Pumpkin Seeds – Air Fryer

I love Halloween for many reasons, but I think one of them being the pumpkin carving and the pumpkin seeds. I have always had and made traditional seeds so this year I decided to step out of the box a little and create some new recipes.

Ranch Flavored

Here is a list of ingredients you will need to make the ranch flavored ones.

  • Unwashed Pumpkin Seeds
  • Melted Butter
  • Ranch Powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper & salt

How To Make Ranch Flavored Seeds

Take your unwashed pumpkin seeds and add them into a medium bowl. Mixing in your melted butter, ranch powder, salt & pepper. Most importantly while you are mixing everything together, preheat your air fryer. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

The unwashed seeds are not necessary but they do add flavor. The “pumpkin guts” add a good flavor that I have always loved.

Below is the full recipe on how to make Ranch Flavored Pumpkin Seeds.
