flaxseed meal for egg substitute

flaxseed meal for egg substitute

Flaxseed meal is an excellent substitute for eggs in baked goods. Recently, I was making whole grain banana and pumpkin bread for holiday gifts and was out of eggs.  I subsituted flaxseed meal for the eggs and it was delicious and ended up being 100% vegan too.  flax-seed-egg-replacer-2

For each egg, combine  1 tablespoon flaxseed meal in 3 tablespoons of water, mix and allow to sit for about  5 minutes until thickens. Add to recipe for an egg substitute.

Bob’s Red Mill flaxseed meal is one of my favorites.  Available at health food stores, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and most grocery stores. Be sure to refrigerate once packaged is open.
