There are only three main tools, but you can rearrange them, remove them or add them back into the Touch Bar as you see fit.

1. Launch the Notes app.
2. Click on View in the app menu section of the Menu bar.
3. Click on Customize Touch Bar.
4. Selecting customize touch bar from the menu bar

Your screen will blur and the customization panel will appear. The buttons on the Touch Bar will also enter jiggly mode.

5. Drag a tool from the screen and into the Touch Bar to add it to the Touch Bar.

Even though the Touch Bar is not attached to the screen, it will appear as though you have crossed a barrier with the tool. Drop it into the Touch Bar.

6. Move the cursor down into the Touch Bar and select a tool to remove it.

You will notice that, as you move your cursor above the tools, they light up.

7. Select a tool on the Touch Bar and drag it to a new location on the Touch bar to rearrange the order.
Click Done when you are finished.
