Vegan Egg Subsitute for Those Allergic to Eggs

Vegan Egg Subsitute for Those Allergic to Eggs

This egg substitute has zero cholesterol and is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Use this recipe to substitute eggs in recipes for cake, bread, muffins, scones, or other desserts.

Ingredients: 1 egg's worth

Flax seeds
1 tablespoon
3 tablespoons


1. Pulverize the flax seeds in a mixer.
2. Put the flax powder in a bowl, add the water, lightly stir, then let sit for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator, then it's ready to use.
3. When stirred, it is viscous and sticky like eggs.
4. These are the flax seeds before they are pulverized. Since they are hard, they can be digested more easily when powdered. You could also add them to smoothies.
5. I used these flax seeds to make carrot cake. (See Recipe ID: 2193846)
6. When I used them in cinnamon waffles, they turned out nice and fluffy. See "cranberry_26"'s Recipe ID: 371866.
7. Although it may be obvious, you cannot make omelettes using flax seeds!

Story Behind this Recipe

Even though they are high in cholesterol, I love to make and eat sweets. Since I feel better eating sweets that don't have any eggs in them, I tried out this vegan egg substitute.
