Below are some of the specific ingredients I use in the recipes.

☀️My favorite nut butter packets:

RX Nut Butter (3 flavors)

☀️Powdered Milk Options:

Bob’s Red Mill Non Fat Dry Milk Powder (probably cheaper at your local grocery/health food store, but this is my favorite powdered milk I’ve tried so far)

Whole Powdered Goat Milk

Powdered Coconut Milk (this is the brand I use, probably cheaper at your local grocery/health food store)

☀️Other Ingredients:

Nature Nates 100% pure raw honey packets (these are so good!)

Kodiak Cakes Pancake Mix (look for this in the pancake section of your local grocery store)

Vital Protein Collagen Creamer (can be used in some recipes instead of powdered milk)
