can I substitute eggbeaters in this recipe? Dietitian comment: Yes that's still a kidney-friendly substitution plus lower fat and cholesterol.

I am looking for nutritious recipes for my 19yr old on PD. This recipe startles me at the amount of fat for one pancake. Generally, 2 pancakes would be a typical serving and that would be 20 grams of fat. I find it hard to even want to make something like that that would in one way work for the kidneys but in another, hurt her heart. Does it really need that much butter/margarine? Dietitian comment: You could reduce the margarine or replace the liquid nondairy creamer with rice milk or another acceptable lower fat milk substitute to make a lower fat pancake or waffle mix.

My husband just started dialysis so I am trying to make healthy changes for everyone. Just made these for breakfast this morning, everone loves them.Can I mix the dry ingredients and store for later use? What is the ratio of yeast to baking soda and baking powder?Looking to try another recipe for lunch and dinner today. Love the website thanks.

Made these the night before....fantastic. Easy to make and they taste great. Used Splenda instead of sugar. Will try day 2 tomorrow. Love being able to make ahead of time, we can have pancakes even on a busy morning.

These pancakes are absolutely wonderful. My father is on dialysis, and my husband and I treat my parents to these pancakes every year for Christmas morning breakfast. You definitely have to cut the recipe down when you don't have a crowd! Well done!
