Get into the fall season with this tasty recipe for Air Fryer Pumpkin Seeds. These savory crunchy seeds are nutritious and totally addictive!

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds (about the amount from one small pumpkin)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Remove the pumpkin seeds from a fresh pumpkin. Place the seeds and any stringy material from the pumpkin in a colander. Rinse the mixture until the pumpkin seeds are clean.
  2. Pour the rinsed pumpkin seeds onto a double layer of dry paper towels and pat dry.
  3. Transfer the dried seeds into a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and salt and stir to combine.
  4. Line your air fryer basket with parchment paper or aluminum foil and cut 4-6 small slits into the paper or foil to help the hot air circulate.
  5. Pour the pumpkin seeds into the basket and set the temperature to 350°F for 20 minutes.
  6. Stop and shake the air fryer basket once during the cooking process.
  7. The pumpkin seeds should be crunchy and slightly browned when they are done roasting.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. This recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled depending on how many seeds are in your pumpkin.
  2. Roasted pumpkin seeds are the crunchiest when eaten right after they are roasted. However, you can store them in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  3. Feel free to get creative with your seasonings. You can use smoked paprika, dried garlic, or even ground cinnamon.
  4. Some air fryers need to be preheated. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s guide for your specific air fryer model to determine if it needs to be preheated.
