cocnut and cashew.......what a combination..........Do you know that ...Coconut Coconut meat is high in fiber and minerals, especially potassium. One ounce of shredded sweetened coconut meat (or about 1/3 of a cup) has 130 calories, 1 gram protein, 8 grams fat, and over 3 grams fiber. It also has 3 milligrams calcium, 14 milligrams magnesium, 103 milligrams potassium, and 81 milligrams sodium and Cashews are very nutritious and are a powerhouse [2] of proteins and essential minerals including copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Sodium is also present in very small quantities.......Awesome post***


Really interesting isn’t it? All of the ingredients really packs nutrient punch for sure


I will need to try these out. They look filling and delish all in one. It's so hard to find healthy filling snacks that are easy to make. Well maybe it's not, and I'm just being lazy. Either way thanks for the post.
