Helpful hints

  • If desired use almond butter in place of peanut butter. Almond butter has 24 mg more phosphorus and 16 mg more potassium per serving than peanut butter.
  • If preferred use reduced-fat peanut butter. This change will add approximately 4 grams of carbohydrate per serving.
  • Chocolate and peanut butter are high in potassium and phosphorus. The secret to including in a kidney diet is the portion--1 small muffin. Ask your dietitian if you need a phosphate binder with this muffin.
