What is a flax "egg"?
A flax "egg" (ground flaxseed combined with water) creates a paste that can be used as an egg substitute in baked recipes that don't need the egg to provide lift or structure.Print
How do you substitute flax for eggs?
1 chicken egg = 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed combined with 3 tablespoon of water).
Do flax "eggs" really work?
It depends on the recipe. I've had success with flax eggs in most simple baked items like muffins and meatballs. However, don't expect the baked goods to rise as nicely or have as much structure as they would if you were using chicken eggs. If you do need the structure and lift I've found the JUST egg to be a great plant based egg replacement that can provide this.
