Came out fantastic! Slightly soft, probably because I used only fresh strawberries. Very tangy like good cheesecake. Next time I may try rolling balls in Kind Granola for a crunchy finish. Suprisingly filling & satisfying! I had 2 lil balls for breakfast and had zero interest in food till lunch. Delicious & guilt free!

Wow these were really tasty…good work you guys!
Cake like texture and so so yummy! Topped mine off with diced strawberries and some
OH SO YUMMEE!! Made these tonight…. taste just like strawberry shortcake! Used almond flour instead. Mmmmm…yes! It’s a keeper. Another delicious recipe to add to my recipe repertoire.
Oh yes, while making this I noticed your recipe calls for 1 ounce freeze-dried strawberries which equates to 2 Tbsp. Yet in parenthesis, it says measures a lil more than a cup.
Can you please advise on the proper amount of freeze-dried strawberries?
