Helpful hints

  • Use old fashioned or quick cooking oatmeal. Avoid instant oatmeal because sodium content is much higher.
  • Omit baking powder for a crunchy cookie. Phosphorus will decrease to 42 mg per serving and sodium decreases to 146 mg.
  • Soy protein powder may be used but nutrient content will change. Soy protein is usually higher in phosphorus compared to whey protein powder. Ask your dietitian for a list of recommended protein powders that are lowest in phosphorus and potassium.

High Protein Cookies

Made these this week for our patients, and they LOVED them! The only deviation made from the recipe was the baking time. It only took about 8 minutes per batch to bake.

These are great. They freeze well, and I am happy to make them for my husband. Thank you, Dietician Amy from Texas!

Made for protein tasting days. Followed the recipe exactly-did not use the baking powder. Was a good tasting product.

Aren't we supposed to avoid oats? Dietitian comment: Oats are nutritious and a source of fiber, but are higher in potassium and phosphorus compared to refined grains. Most dietitians find oats acceptable in a kidney diet in limited amounts. One serving of these[INVALID]s has 12 mg potassium and 14 mg phosphorus contributed by the oats.

I agree with the previous poster. Should I add 1/3 stick of margarine/butter like the recipe says or follow the helpful hint that says 1/3 stick of margarine = 5 tablspoons it doesn't equal 5 tablespoons at all. Not even close. Dietitian comment: I have clarified the portion, adjusted the recipe andremoved the confusing helpful hint. Use 3 tablespoons margarine instead of 1/3 stick(nutrient levels adjusted slightly).

Cookies really spread and were greasy. So my suggestion is to cut the margarine OR increase the flour. "1/3 of a stick of margarine" is 2.6 T. where 1/3 C. is more margarine. What if we try Bread Flour (more protein)? I won't give up on this recipe because the flavor is there, it just needs some tweaking! Keep Smilin'
