This is what I use instead of eggs in recipes for cookies and breads and stuff. It works pretty well at holding things together, and yet it is cheaper than eggs. This makes one egg worth.
- Grind up the flax seeds in the blender until they are pretty fine (you don't have to do this, but they are less noticable this way).
- Mix the seeds and the water and cook on the stove until it gets all jelly-like.
- Remove from heat and let cool before using in cookies, muffins, breads, etc.
I only used 3 T water instead of 5 and did not boil it first - just added it to the yeast bread dough and went on. Turned out great. I would not skip the boiling if you arent making a yeast bread.
This was a recipe-saver, as I was short one egg, and it worked beautifully! This will be my go-to egg replacer! Thanks, pollen!
