Going vegan? Do eggs upset your stomach? Are you just looking for an egg alternative? Learn how to make a flax egg, my trusty substitution!
Looking for egg alternatives? After years of experimenting with flax eggs, bananas, baking soda, tofu, and applesauce, this egg replacer is an easy and cheap investment that never fails.
What’s a flax egg?
A quick and easy egg replacer! They’re a great alternative when baking.
Using 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds and 3 tablespoons water, simply mix them together and let sit for about 5-10 minutes to thicken.
The result will be a gelatinous egg substitute that you can use in place of 1 egg. If you need 2 eggs, simply double the recipe. I have had great results using flax eggs when baking cookies, pancakes, banana bread, blondies, cupcakes, and muffins. When I don't want to use my Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer, this is my trusty substitution.
