Egg Substitutes for Baking

5 from 1 reviews

Flaxseeds, being gelatinous when exposed to water, are the perfect vegan egg substitutes for baking!


  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal 
  • 2.5 tablespoons water (cold or room temperature)


  1. Mix ingredients together with a whisk or fork, and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, or until mixture becomes gelatinous (I often speed up the process to only 5 minutes by placing in the freezer).
  2. Use in recipe as you would an egg.


Although best used in recipes replacing up to 2 eggs, I’ve achieved good results in particular recipes using up to 4 gelatin eggs! These Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles would be a great recipe to experiment with!
