Easy vegan flax seed egg replacer

Flax seeds can make for a great egg replacer in baked goods. They have a great binding quality, and will also add moisture. They’re high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, so they’ll make your baked goods more nutritious also.

Let’s start with a few tips though, first of all, know that when you make any substitutions in a recipe it’s going to taste differently. So don’t expect the final result to be the exact same as the version you make with regular eggs. Also, flax seed egg replacers work best in recipes that only call for 1 or 2 eggs. If you’re making a dish that needs a lot of eggs, like eclair cakes then flax eggs probably won’t work well.

Finally, make sure you start with actual flax seeds. Don’t use pre-ground flax powder, it won’t come out as well as grinding your own seeds.

Ingredients:

1/8 c flax seeds
1/8 c warm water

You’ll also need either a spice grinder or bullet blender.

Directions:

1. Measure out seeds, and grind until you have a fine powder.

2. Add warm water, stir and set aside for about five minutes.

3. Fluff with a fork then add to your recipe.
