Can someone make a video of the ingredients brand you used... I don't know what white beans are..?

For you people that have to nit pick the author’s calorie content… Calories can be ALL over the board and being precise is not easy and necessary! Do your own measuring, then post your own post…just wait for the negative reactions you “yourselves” have given this author’s post, who is trying to help. I find their ideas welcoming and I don’t NEED exact caloric amounts to know they sound delicious and will save me a lot of my own legwork. Thank you to this site for giving me hope and something other than saturated fats to gain some weight! God Bless you for the information and time spent putting it all together for people like myself who appreciate the ideas!

So I'm having to find means to consume healthy calories until I'm able to eat normally again. My question, #2, mentioned almond milk in the description, but the ingredients do not have almond milk. Is the recipe correct??

Hi Todd, a typo! It's supposed to be almond butter. So, yes it doesn't have almond milk but does almond butter. :)
