Substituting Eggs.

While ‘Eating Animal Free’ I have had a lot of people ask me how to substitute eggs, or others say they are interested in becoming vegan but like eggs too much and don’t know how to replace them.

When I first became vegan, I didn’t know too much about substituting an egg so I used a product called made by Organ called ‘No Egg’. This product is great for pretty much everything, it doesn’t have a flavor so it won’t affect your cooking. ‘No Egg’ is also gluten free.

Organ No Egg- use measurements for replacing on packaging.

When I am baking, i generally replace eggs with a chia or flax seed ‘egg’, mashed banana or applesauce; these egg substitutes are great binding. They are very simple to make and are good for you! Chia and flax seeds are one of my favorite egg replaces  because they are full of fatty acids, protein and fiber; and they work just as well as an egg.

Chia Egg- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds + 2 tablespoons of water

Add the chia seeds and water to a dish and stir. Sit for 5 minutes to allow to chia to activate and thicken. After it has thickened it should be an egg consistency.  This replaces one egg.

Flax Egg- 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds + 2  tablespoons of water

Add the ground flax seeds and water to a dish and stir. Sit for 5 minutes to allow to flax seeds to thicken, after the flax has thickened it should be an egg consistency. This replaces one egg.
