Maple Roasted Pepitas
Maple Pumpkin Seeds – a healthy snack high in zinc and magnesium
The vast majority of pumpkin seeds are grown in China. Stony Brook is one of the very few producers in the US using domestically grown seeds, and these are grown and roasted right here in the Finger Lakes. Stony Brook's pumpkin seeds are drizzled with maple syrup for a slightly sweet, crispy crunchy snack loaded with nutrients like Vitamin E, zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium, omega 3 and omega 9 fats, lutein and beta carotene. These are the same seeds roasted and pressed to create Stony Brook's pumpkin seed oil.
Eat right out of the bag or sprinkle over your yogurt, granola, or dress up a mixed green salad with goat cheese, beets and blueberries!
