I believe the nutritional information is off by quite a bit. When I calculate it comes to 185 calories for 1/4 cup. Taste is great though!!

They turned out better than I thought they would in the microwave.

I must admit I was skeptical about making pumpkin seeds in the microwave. But I shouldn't have been because they came out delicious! In my opinion they are way better than oven baked. So light and crunchy. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be using this one again.

Never tried it in a micro...Instead of seasoned salt, I used Cajun seasonings...we like it with a "kick"! Came out GREAT! Thanks!!
