Ayurvedic Perspective:

It’s a nourishing snack, pacifying for Vata and Pitta constitution. Cardamom and Tahini gives it a warming effect which is great for Vata (air and ether elements). Coconut oil and coconut are slightly cooling and that is good to pacify Pitta (fire and water elements). Cashews are nourishing for Pitta and Vata.
