Maple Pumpkin 3-Seed Brittle

I’ve always loved the crunch and sweetness of peanut brittle, but the store-bought kind is often made with GMO-filled sugar and corn syrup.

I’m not partial to peanuts per se, and actually found that by swapping peanuts with pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower seeds, and sugar with pure maple syrup, not only is this recipe a peanut brittle upgrade…it’s even better than the original (and you won’t crack any teeth!). 

The original recipe comes from www.feedingbig.com. Thank you Cynthia, for a wonderful recipe!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup white sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325° and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin seeds through salt, then add maple syrup and vanilla, mixing until well coated.
  2. Place mixture on baking sheet and press into an even layer about ⅛-inch thick. Use a piece of parchment paper to flatten the seeds, pressing out the middle so it’s slightly thinner than the edges. This will help prevent burning.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely so that it becomes crispy. Once crispy, break into bark-shaped pieces and store in airtight container.
