Step away from the pumpkin seeds!

I just candied some peeled pumpkin seeds to sprinkle on the pumpkin-banana bread (<-- clicky) that I'm going to make after dinner. I can't stop eating them! They're not even cooled yet, and I keep wandering over to the counter to nibble.

    Ahh they would not last around me! I had a chocolate bundt cake with pumpkin seeds today, and they were heavenly. I am so excited that it's Fall! 

    I demand a recipe for that pumpkin-banana bread!

    I made it a clicky :) I haven't tried it, but it's from Skinny Taste, and everyone always seems to recommend her recipes. I'll post a pic and comment after I make it.

    since I'm lazy and don't want to click the clicky Tongue out, can you tell me if the recipe to candy the pumpkin seeds is in the clicky or do you have a recipe you use?

    I used my recipe that I use when candying almonds. Put the seeds in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat with a few tablespoons of white sugar, and a little bit of water. Stir constantly until the sugar coats the seeds.

    It's not an exact science, and there's probably a better way to do it. I've found it just takes a little practice.

    How did it come out? Did you used already peeled seeds out of a container? :)

    I didn't end up baking yet, but I put the seeds away so I'd at least stop eating them. I used already peeled seeds from the bulk section in the grocery store. It was a bit of an experiment, but they're pretty tasty. :)
