    Talking Cookie Recipes

    Hello All!

    My sister and I are wanting to bake cookies for all the patients in my grandmother's dialysis center and are looking for some good recipes. If possible some diabetic recipes. If anyone has any or knows of a good website please let me know. We want to do something nice for the patients during Christmas this year.

    Thanks Again!

    You might talk with the dietician there and get her suggestions. You are going to be limited in what you make.

    Is the peanut butter okay for phosphorus? I was told to stay away from it and I'm craving it! Is this amount okay, and how many cookies can I eat?

    Probably 1 or 2. The recipe doesn't say how many it yields. I'm guessing a dozen. If I'm right, there would be 2 teaspons of peanut butter in each cookie. Two teaspoons probably won't hurt you as an occasional treat, especially if you take your binders.

    I usually take extra binders when I eat something that I know is high in phosphorous. My dialysis nurse said that you can't overdose on binders so take as many as you think you need during a meal or snack. Of course, don't overdo it, but I just thought I'd mention it. It seems like most patients think that high phosphorous is never allowed, but it is occasionally, as long as you take extra binders.

    My husband's renal dietician told him he could have forbidden foods like peanut butter once a month in the portion for 1 serving. Just take an extra binder. The whole thing is to keep the serving size small and not every day.

    The truth is that almost anything can be eaten once in a while if you take a very small portion of it. My problem, and that of many people, is that if a forbidden food is a favorite I am not satisfied with a small portion. I have done a bit more calculation on the pb cookie recipe. If I am right saying that it yields one dozen cookies, then one cookie would have 34g of phosphorous. So one or two cookies would be OK.
