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!
