Flax-Egg

Makes equivalent to 1 Egg

Ingredients

  • 1 heaping Tablespoon flaxmeal or chia seeds*
  • 3 Tablespoons  room temperature filtered water

Instructions

  1. Combine the two and let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes.  This allows the mixture to gel, creating a texture similar to a beaten egg.  Repeat for each additional egg.
  2. Obviously this won't work for every recipe, but for most it is a great substitution.  Experiment for yourself, and i hope that you are pleasantly surprised!

Recipe Notes

*Flaxseeds work better when they are ground into a meal "Flaxmeal" but i find that chia seeds gel up so much that they don't need to be ground.
