I have a kilo of raw pumpkin seeds I need to use and have been looking for recipes and this one looked good. I would say ditch the stevia as it leaves a bad aftertaste, but maybe I used too much. I added 4 drops. I added some nutritional yeast, more salt and some lemon to try to cover the stevia. I plan to make this again (obviously without the stevia.:) )
