I’ve had many people over the last few years about where they can find nut free seeds that don’t have a nut warning. Although it seems to me the vast majority of seeds you can buy in supermarkets have a warning label on them. What a pain!

However, it doesn’t have to be! Autumn is on it’s way and that means pumpkins and butternut squashes. So I thought, why not roast your own seeds, then you can guarantee they are free from nuts, peanuts and cross-contamination!

This recipe is sooooooo easy and take about 15 minutes from start to finish! Make a batch in advance and store them in an airtight container for later.

Nut Free Roasted Seeds


  • Seeds from 1 Pumpkin and or 1 Butternut Squash


  1. Separate the seeds from the flesh.
  2. Heat a frying pan on a high heat until piping hot.
  3. Add your seeds to the frying pan. Fry on a high heat until they have puffed up and dried out, approximately 10 minutes. Stir the seeds every couple of minutes while they are frying.
  4. Leave to cool on a plate and then they are ready.


Use them in nut free muesli, grind them up as a replacement for nuts in pesto, mix with dried fruit and eat them as a snack.

For more flavours, why not try adding some crushed dried chilli, ground cumin and smoked paprika to your seeds for a fiery snack.
