These were very good. I could tell they didn't have as much salt as pancakes from a mix but they were still very flavorful.

How can this be low phosphorous when there are 2 teaspoons of baking powder in this recipe? I have been told not to use baking powder at all....aND IT IS VERY HIGH IN PHOSPHOROUS. I am confused, please verify. Thank you. Dietitian answer: It[INVALID]s because other phosphorus contributing ingredients have been substituted with lower phosphate ingredients; egg substitute and nondairy creamer used are lower in phosphorus than eggs and milk. When choosing baking powder, look for a brand with sodium-aluminum sulfate (Calumet, Clabber Girl) as these will have less phosphorus (100 mg/tsp) than the all-phophate baking powder brands (Rumford, Magic Baking Powder) (400 mg/tsp).

Is it possible to use dry powder milk mixed with water instead of creamer & leave out the salt? Tks. Moderator comment: potassium and phosphorus content will be higher if milk powder is substituted.

The baaking powder is not good for dialysis programs. what can I use instead?? Moderator comment: Baking powder may be included in limited amounts. The key is to be sure other ingredients in the recipe or at the meal are low in phosphorus and sodium.

When I make something for myself that calls for baking powder I substitute it with baking soda and cream of tartar. So in this recipe 2 tsp of baking powder would become 1 tsp of baking soda and 1 tsp of cream of tartar. Oh and I would also sprinkle on cinnamon with the syrup!!

Baking power? this has high levels of Phosphorus? is their other leavening we could use? Moderator: The key is substituting other lower phosphorus ingredients like the nondairy creamer and egg substitute to keep the final phosphorus content low enough to keep it kidney-friendly.

I tried the maple pancakes this morning. I found them quite tasty. I had to be careful with the heat though. They cook faster than reg. pancakes
