If you’re a vegan and you like baked goods, then it can be really challenging to find recipes to suit your dietary needs. So many recipes for baked goods call for eggs. The great news is that you can easily substitute other ingredients for eggs and still have a delicious recipe come out of the oven.
The good thing about these ideas is they are not processed like the commercial egg substitute products. Try them out!
1. Flax Seed
Finely ground flax makes an excellent binder; however, it has a nutty flavor that’s best reserved for whole-grain baked goods and pancakes.
How much to use: The basic ratio is 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds and 3 tablespoons of water to replace 1 egg.
2. Silken Tofu
Silken tofu is relatively flavorless but it can make baked goods dense, so it’s best used in brownies and some quick breads and cakes.
How much to use: Use 1/4 cup of puréed tofu for 1 egg.
Banana adds lots of moisture and some extra sweetness in muffins and cakes, so you need to adjust the sugar amount in your recipe.
How much to use: Different sources recommend anywhere from 1/2 to 1 mashed banana as a replacement for 1 egg.
I’ve also used mashed avocado or applesauce in place of eggs. What ingredients have you tried? To see a few additional ideas, see the original post on TheKitchn.
