Just to verify, 1/8 cup salt? Seems excessive!

    Thanks for pointing that out Janet – I just checked with Tarah, and that’s a typo. It should read 1/8 tsp and has been corrected. Thanks!

FWIW I made these and figured out the nutrition…

12 servings

22g fat
3g saturated
5g polysaturated
1g monosaturated

65g sodium
236g potassium
13g carbs
4g fiber
6.5g sugar
8g protein

Just made these today and they are amazing – thanks! They’ll be fantastic for taking out with me on a long bike ride as they are calorie dense and hold together really well. Subbed brazils for walnuts as I didn’t have any in, and this worked fine. I balked at the the amount of salt too, and found 1 tsp was plenty enough for me (I know salt is not as bad as some people would have us believe, but just thought 1/8 of a cup might just be overpoweringly salty for my taste!)
