After learning that I was highly intolerant to eggs, I had to find a substitute to use in baking. I have tried a few different options, but this one is my favourite.
I also believe this is the healthier and best vegan egg substitute option as well as flaxseeds are also a prebiotic and good for your gut. So this is how to make a flax egg:
Just 2 Ingredients:
- Flaxseed meal, I prefer organic. I usually use Ceres Organics Flaxseed Meal
- Filtered Water
You just need a small bowl or a mug and a tablespoon.
I was originally told to use 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal to 3 tablespoons of water. That gave me a few problems with some baking recipes. I was finding they cake, muffin, biscuits, etc weren’t being completely cooked in the middle and would turn out a bit gooey.
Then I came across a recommendation from someone to use only 2 tablespoons of water to 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal. That has worked much better and is what I use now every time.
After I add the level compacted tablespoon of flaxseed meal to a mug or bowl and add the 2 tablespoons of filtered water, I then use a fork to mix it well.
Then I like to let it sit for at least a few minutes before I use it.
Feel free to let me know if this has worked for you or if you have any tips to add.
