    Roosie's Note:

    This is a vegan substitute for eggs in baked goods. It could probably work in casseroles too, but don't try scrambled eggs with this! ;)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Simmer flax seeds and water in a saucepan for about 5 minutes (or less or more time depending on the amount you are making) or until thick, egg-like consistency has been reached.
    2. 2
      Let cool before using in a recipe.** (About 10 minutes).
    3. 3
      This recipe makes 1 eggs worth, but it can be easily made into a larger quantity using the 1:3 ratio- for example, 1 cup ground flax seeds and 3 cups water (that would make 16 eggs worth) and will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
    4. 4
      Use about 1/4 cup (which is equal to 4Tbs) egg substitute for every egg.

      Excellent! I love this egg substitute and use it often. I don't boil the mixture, however. I add the flax meal to a small bowl, add very hot tap water and stir. I let the mix sit for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. When I bake I usually do this first so when I need a "flax egg," it's ready to go. I have used this substitute successfully in muffin and quick bread recipes but haven't tried it in anything that calls for more than three eggs.

      I have used this many times and it is wonderful! It doesn't work well with certain recipes (like sugar cookies ;)) but it is great in quick breads, pancakes, yeast breads, muffins, chocolate cakes, choc. chip cookies, etc. Nice sub. when you don't want to use an egg. Thanks for sharing.

      Great in pancakes and muffins! UPDATE: I just used this in 40 Minute Hamburger Buns for our 4th of July vegan cookout, and they turned out wonderfully!
