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.
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.
Here’s a video demo of how to make a chia or flax egg, too:
- 1 tablespoon ground flax or chia seeds
- 3 tablespoons water
Whisk together the ground seeds and water until well combined, then place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes.
Use as you would an egg in many of your favorite baking recipes.
Use as you would any egg, and enjoy!
