Review! – Innofoods Coconut Keto Clusters

Note: I am not affiliated with any links. I make no money off of purchases. Just linking for clarity!

Today I am reviewing Innofoods Coconut Keto Clusters.

Price: An 16oz bag can be purchased for $12.49. Each serving size is 1oz, so the cost per serving is 78 cents. A price comparison is difficult, as the closest thing I could compare this too is granola, which is made of oats usually. Oats are very inexpensive, so it really isn’t fair to compare the two. I’m going to leave at 4 stars, because 78 cents is not terrible, and this bag has lasted me a long time, however, there are slightly more affordable Keto Snacks. 4 Stars

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Taste: Oh my. The crunch, the sweet – so delicious! I really enjoy these a lot. First bite is a burst of coconut. After a few more bites, the coconut flavor settles, and you can almost taste the pecans, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. I really like coconut, so 5 stars. (If you are adverse to coconut, you may rate less, however, you probably wouldn’t have bought these, now would you? 🙂 )

Keto Friendly: One (1) ounce = 4g net carbs | 14g of fat | 3g of protein. These are a fantastic choice! I really enjoy the crunch of the nut mix and the sweet of the coconut. They meet my need for sweet, crunchy, and keep me full. I’ve found that these are a good snack for on the road. 5 Stars

Overall: I really liked these. They also made a really good “granola” topping for the Simple Truth Keto Black Raspberry Ice Cream. The helped my sweet tooth and the want of crunch. They also not only meet the Keto requirements, but are vegan and gluten free. I might just start bringing a bag to future potlucks! Also, there is only 1g of sugar alcohols added, so if you do splurge and eat the entire bag, chances are you will not have intestinal discomfort. I do wish they were a little more affordable, but, I will just keep an eye out and stock up when they are on sale! 4.5 Stars

Are pumpkin seeds keto?

Pumpkin seeds are absolutely Keto, if they fit into your macros. Like with most things in life, if you eat a moderate amount of seeds, that can easily give you a good crunchy snack. 1oz, or 85 seeds still have 10 net carbs, so take that into consideration! When carving pumpkins, I save the innards and use for multiple purposes.

This year, I toasted the pumpkin seeds and pureed the pumpkin for a frozen treat for the doggo! (Spoiler: Next weeks post!)

Step 1: Gather your pumpkin guts and separate into seeds vs goo. The goo you can then freeze, compost, or save for your doggos when they have an upset tummy!

Step 2: Rinse your seeds. Place on a tray, and let dry over night.

Step 3: Preheat over 400F. Place your seeds in a bowl; coat in a little oil and salt. You want the seeds all lightly coated. If in doubt, use less salt. This crazy chick has learned a little salt goes a LONG way. For about 2 cups of seeds, you will want about a tablespoon of salt and two tablespoons of olive oil.

Step 4: Spread seeds onto a baking sheet. When over reaches 400F, place your tray in the oven. Toast for about 10 minutes, flip your seeds and toast for another 10 minutes. Oven times may vary based on your over temperature and the moisture in the seeds. Seeds are done when they are a nice golden tint!
