yes, the saturated fat is coming from the coconut. They should
leave the coconut out and replace it with another nut/seed that is
low in saturated fat and the bar would be better. But again, energy
bars and not the best choices. They are calorie dense but not
nutrient dense overall.

Also, if your total saturated fat for the day was less than
7% (or even better less than 5%) you could squeeze maybe one of
these in on occasion. But, most people in American have
saturated fat intakes of around
12% already.

Regardless of whether you are raw, vegan, or both, you still need to
follow healthy guidelines.
