  • Prep Ahead of Time – Once they have cooled you can keep them in an airtight container for about 2 days at room temperature and up to a week in the fridge.
  • Freezer – After they have cooled completely you can place them in a freezer bag, press out as much air as you can, and you can keep them in the freezer for 2-3 months.
  • Serving suggestion – We highly recommend making them with chili!  We don’t make chili without them!  This one is our fav!!  They also make a great Thanksgiving side dish.
  • Toppings – they are so yummy that you could eat them by themselves but if you want to bring them to the next level – cut them in half and add a little honey, ghee, or butter on top!!
  • Butter – Yes! If butter isn’t an issue for you, then go ahead and use it!
  • Almond Milk alternative – You should be able to use any dairy-free milk.
