How To Make Flax Eggs (or Chia Eggs)

Flax “eggs” are an easy substitute in most recipes calling for just one or two eggs. They’re a great option for vegans and those allergic to chicken eggs.

To prepare a flax egg, simply grind some flax seeds, or chia seeds, in a coffee grinder.

Note: Freshly ground seeds work best, over the store-bought milled variety.

For each egg, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed (measure after grinding) with 3 tablespoons of water.

Stir well, and place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes. 

After 15 minutes, the result should be a sticky egg-like substitute.
