One of the most difficult things to living egg free is baking egg free! As a southern girl baking is huge and there are a plethora of desserts that require eggs. So when I learned that I had to live egg free, I set out on a journey to reverse engineer all of my favorite recipes and figure out which ones I could recreate egg free! The first step in this process was to identify an egg substitute. However, I didn’t want to just go buy a manufactured “egg replacement”, I wanted something healthy! My research led me to ground flaxseeds.
How to make this egg substitute?
- Finely grind whole golden flaxseeds and set aside one tablespoon in a small mixing bowl. (You can grind them using a coffee grinder or high powered blender.(
- Add three tablespoons of water to the mixing bowl with the ground flaxseeds.
- Whisk until well mixed. Set aside for two to three minutes. The mixture will start to thicken to a similar consistency as a beaten egg.
- Add the flaxseed mixture to the rest of your ingredients per the rest of the recipe.
