I noticed that this recipe is very similar to a recipe I had, except the butter is reduced by 2/3 and the molasses is also reduced a lot. What is the issue with butter and fat for kidney disease patients. My nephew is about to start dialysis and is hoping to get a transplant. Dietitian comment: The butter and fat restriction is individualized for each patient based on their lipid levels and if cardiovascular disease is part of their diagnosis.

What it's the size of one stick butter by grams? Also how many grams of margarine if used as a replacement for butter? Thank you in advance. Dietitian comment: One stick of butter or margarine is 112 grams (1/2 cup). These values are for a stick. The weight will vary if whipped or if water is added during processing.

Can I use margarine instead of butter. Dietitian comment: Yes margarine will work as a replacement for the butter. Look for unsalted margarine.
