How To Bake Dairy-Free | Easiest Egg Replacement: Flax Egg

December 19, 2016

I seriously couldn't wait another day to share this with you. Learning how to make this egg replacement has changed my life. I say that not only because I'm vegan and don't eat eggs, but because it's made out of one of the easiest, least perishable, healthiest foods out there: flaxseed. If you don't know what flaxseed is, definitely check out this article on Web MD that headlines: "Preliminary studies show that it may help fight heart disease, diabetes and breast cancer." 

Yes, you can prevent breast cancer AND replace a highly perishable food when cooking and baking! Read on to figure out how easy this is. It takes all of 30 seconds, AKA, the time it takes to crack open an egg (without the mess).
EASY EGG REPLACEMENT: FLAX EGG

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 small dish
  • 1 spoon for stirring

Method:
This is done in LITERALLY thirty seconds.

1. Measure out the flaxseed, then put into the dish.
2. Pour the water over the flaxseed and stir to combine.
3. Let it sit for 5 minutes (or while you complete other steps of your baking) and then it should thicken quite a bit!

This is the equivalent to one egg. So if your recipe called for two eggs, you would use 2 tbs. flaxseed and 6 tbs. water, and so forth! Simple as that, and WAY better for you!

HAPPY DAIRY-FREE BAKING!
I know dairy allergies are fairly common now, so please take try out this method, you guys - I promise you won't go back to eggs, ever!

  7. Yes! I use flax eggs all the time and I never have problems with recipes. Have you ever tried using aquafaba? I haven't, but I'm so curious to see if it works!
