Vegan Egg Replacers

Egg Replacers

Flax Seed Egg Replacer:
Purchase an inexpensive coffee grinder to use for grinding flax seeds or spices. Don’t use your regular coffee grinder unless you want everything to taste like coffee. This recipe makes enough flax powder for 4 “eggs.”
½ cup flax seeds
In a coffee grinder, process the flax seeds until powdered. Keep powder stored in refrigerator in a container with a tight fitting lid.

2 tbsp flax powder + 3 tbsp water = 1 egg
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes before adding to baking.

* Whole flax seeds & ground flax seeds can be purchased in the health food section of the grocery store.

Tofu Egg Replacer
Remember to use soft or silken tofu as egg replacer.
¼ cup blended soft tofu = 1 egg

Ener-G-Egg Replacer
You can purchase Ener-G Powdered Egg Replacer in most health food stores.
1 ½ tsp + 2 tbsp water mixed well = 1 egg

Banana Egg Replacer
Not to be used in every recipe, bananas are a terrific egg substitute when you don’t mind adding a little tropical flavor to your baking.
½ banana, blended or well mashed = 1 egg

Apple Sauce Egg Replacer
Like bananas, apple sauce is a great egg replacer when you don’t mind having a little extra fruit flavor added.
3 tbsp apple sauce = 1 egg

  1. I think you should tell the audience which one is your favorite egg replacer so they don’t waste their time using flax seed and end up with flat cookies!

  2. Good point MonkeyMan…

    I’m not sure I have a FAVORITE egg replacer for cookies…sometimes I use flax seed and sometimes I use Ener-G-Egg Replacer.

    For breads I like to use bananas or applesauce.

    I haven’t tried Tofu as an egg replacer yet but it looks like its time to experiment!

  3. PS: The flat cookies we made were due to the excessive emount of “butter” we used…not so much attributed to the egg replacer.
    I love you MonkeyMan…movies at my place ASAP ;0)
