We have been making these for years, and my college-aged son just asked for the recipe. The one thing I do differently is to dry the seeds before coating in oil, stirring occasionally to keep from sticking to the waxed or parchment paper. Then toss with oil and salt and bake, stirring occasionally until lightly toasted.
