Servings: 1 cup


  • 1 cup cleaned and dried pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon Homemade Sweet Rub https://heygrillhey.com/best-sweet-rub-grilled-pork-chicken/
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive or avocado oil


  • Preheat your indirect grill to 425 degrees F.
  • Trim a piece of parchment paper to fit on a large baking sheet. You can also use aluminum foil. Spread the pumpkin seeds out on the parchment paper in a single layer.
  • Drizzle the seeds with the oil and season with the Sweet Rub. Spread the seeds around to fully coat with the oil and rub.
  • Place the baking sheet on the grill grates and cook the seeds for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally and checking often. Seeds are done when they are slightly golden on the edges and the rub has begun to caramelize.
  • Remove the pan from the grill and allow the seeds to cool completely before removing to an airtight bag or jar for storage.
