Flax Egg Substitute Recipe

Need to do some baking without eggs?  This recipe works great as an egg substitute when the job of the egg is to bind.  The flax egg will not make your baked goods rise, but it will keep them from crumbling.  I have successfully used this recipe in muffin and granola bar recipes.  If you don’t have flax seed, you might try chia seed egg replacement.

Flax Eggs - Yum!

Ingredients for 1 Eggs:
1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
2-3 Tbsp water

Ingredients for 4 Eggs:
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
3/4 cup water

Ingredients for 8 Eggs:
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1 1/2 cup water

1. In a small pan, simmer water and flax seeds until it starts to gel.  It takes about 5 minutes for 4 eggs.
2. Let cool.  Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Ground flaxseed oxidizes very quickly.  It is best to purchase whole flaxseeds and grind them yourself.  I use an old coffee grinder to grind mine.  If you grind extra, store in the freezer.

I have found the best place to buy flaxseeds is Amazon.  It is a great item on which to use your swagbucks !
