Helpful hints

  • Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or canned peaches also make a great substitution for strawberries.
  • Pancakes can also be topped with sugar-free or regular jam or pancake syrup or whipped topping.
  • You can flick water across the griddle or frying pan surface, and if it beads up and sizzles, it’s ready for the pancake batter.

You had a breakfast with rice milk and rice flour--I lost the recipe. Dietitian comment: It's the Puffed Oven Pancake.

made these simple pancakes for a recipe demo and they are very good...quick and easy to make and tasty. I added a little vanilla extract and some Vietnamese cinnamon and served with fresh berries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Very nice! Making for my grandson this weekend!

WAS GOOD. COULD YOU SUBSTITUE WHEAT FLOUR INSTEAD OF ALL PURPOSE FLOUR? Dietitian comment: Yes you can. At one time the kidney diet restricted whole grains. Today's kidney diet does include many whole grains and whole wheat flour.

Can not use eggs at all need to know of a great substitute. I have tried Ener-G food egg replacer seemed to do okay, but pancakes were very flat and stuck to the pan and hard to flip and keep together. If you have any suggestions that would be great. Dietitian comment: Substitutions may depend on why you can't have eggs. Egg allergy? or cholesterol concerns?

I Just did the recipe, and it was great. Made some changes for myself, I used 3 eggs, Cause with 4 eggs it seemed like a lot of protein and cholesterol,..No Butter,Just didn't see why you would need it as your using a spray for the pan, I'm guessing for the taste of salt maybe, But i kinda reduced my salt. didn't have the strawberries so substituted it for Blue berries...and use olive oil spray-No cholesterol...

great recipe & my favorite type 'keep it simple!!' - i dice frozen strawberries,blackberries,blueberries,raspberries in all these recipes- works great & don't have to try & overuse too many to avoid them spoiling in the fridge.

Do you beat the batter to make it smooth? I want to try this. Dietitian comment: It is not mentioned in the recipe but I would suggest just stirring ingredients to mix.

Does the level of kidney function affect the receipes? The 3 P's seem high in most of the items I've seen. Moderator comment: Yes, individual goals for protein, potassium and phosphorus are different based on stage of CKD, your lab results and nutritional status. All the recipes have been modified to reduce sodium, potassium and phosphorus compared to a general recipe. When you look at a recipe consider it's contribution to the daily nutrient count. Is it an entree or side? If your nutrient targets are divided into 3 (for 3 meals) would this item fit? You will find small amounts of foods with higher sodium, potassium and phosphorus can still be included without exceeding daily nutrient targets.
