As an excellent source of vegetable protein, pumpkin seeds are easy to add to your recipes while providing a light yet delightful taste. Jessie and PH, authors of cookbook Végane mais pas plate! (Vegan but not boring!), suggest pumpkin bread as a snack of choice — worthy of the current season!

Pour in combined mixture.
Sprinkle on the Prana organic pumpkin seeds.
