  1. What does is say 1 bottle of Tsamma Juice? Where do you add it in?

    • Amber Gray

      Hi Ashley,

      The Tsamma Juice is to pair with the bars. It’s not actually included in the recipe.

  2. How well do these freeze? If I wanted to make a big batch, could I freeze them?

    • Amber Gray

      We haven’t tried freezing them yet. With similar items, I’ve added them single layer to a ziplock bag, topped with a paper towel. You can usually do 2 or 3 layers this way (make sure to use a paper towel between each layer). Defrost in the fridge or on the counter. The paper towels will absorb the moisture to keep things fresh.

  3. What can I use in place of coconut?

    • Amber Gray

      You can just leave it out if you’re not a fan 🙂
