"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!!"

"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."
