What is this odd stuff coming out of the nuts and seeds

So my second time soaking nuts and seeds.

This time I soaked almonds (48 hours), pumpkin seeds (12 hours) and sunflower seeds (12 hours).

The first time I left the skins on and here is what happened the first time.

Some weird black spots appeared:

The second time these spots did not appear because I took off the skins... So it has something to do with the skin.

The same thing happened with sunflower seeds and hazelnuts.

sunflower seeds left the same black stuff on the paper (almonds did as well):

skinless almonds did just fine:

What is that black stuff? Someone told me they were enzymes but it's kinda hard to believe. And I think I accidentally roasted my sunflower seeds (10 hours in oven). They are still good, right? :D

PS: these spots came after dehydrating the nuts or seeds in my oven. might have something to do with water? They were wet when I put them in the oven. The temperature was not too high (approx 122 degrees)

I'm not going to lie man, that second pic looks like straight up mold to me... I could be wrong. I've eaten a lot of pumpkin seeds but never soak them for longer than an hour or two. I for sure haven't seen anything like that!

You might be soaking them for too long. Look online for soaking time, WAPF is a good place IMO.
