    I agree with myrtrose, I would want more than 1/3 cup of this. I would leave out the salt and the sugar, as the cashews are salted, and the dried fruit is very sweet. Also I don't see the reason to use an egg white, so I would omit the egg white.

    Sorry but dried fruits are a huge No for a look at the serving size. I know I'd want alot more than 1/3 cup, which would make this a very unhealthy snack! Diabetics have to watch fat and sodium too.
