Helpful hints

  • Nuts are high in potassium and phosphorus but may be included in small amounts. The 1/4 cup walnuts in this recipe provides 15 mg potassium and 9 mg phosphorus per slice.
  • To reduce carbohydrate and calories, substitute 1/2 cup Splenda© sugar blend for baking for the 1 cup of sugar. Carbohydrate is reduced to 25 grams and calories are reduced to 160.
  • Make an extra loaf and freeze for later.

In your answer about potassium in pecans you gave 2 Different amounts I have a carrot bread that is tried and true and I believe it would be good for kidney diet. How do I summit it? Dietitian comment: Thanks for pointing that out. Correction: The pecans are 120 mg potassium per 1/4 cup and peanuts are 245 mg per 1/4 cup, making pecans the better choice. I have emailed you information about adding your own recipe. Thanks!

Is there any other kind of nuts that have less potassium than walnuts? Maybe peanuts? Dietitian [INVALID]: 1/4 cup walnuts=150 mg potassium; 1/4 cup pecans= 120 mg potassium; 1/4 cup pecans=245 mg potassium. Pecans are the best choice and the really important thing is to only use 1/4 cup for the recipe.

Can dried cranberries be substituted in this recipe? Sounds great. I'm allergic to artificial sweetners, will need to cut sugar in half, but dried fruit tends to be sweeter, so that may offset the sugar, correct? Can't rate it yet, need help first, please? Moderator comment: Yes you can substitute 1 cup dried cranberries for 1-1/2 cups fresh cranberries. I agree with cutting the sugar in half. I would also increase the liquid (juice) by 1/4 cup.

Where are the nuts in this Cranberry Nut Bread? Moderator comment: Good catch! Actually the recipe was incorrectly linked to the Cranberry Muffin recipe. Everything is back to normal now.
