Vegan Egg Replacer / Substitute

"I often use flax seed and water as an egg replacer, but if you want to avoid a nutty taste, this can be used in baking, too. It is closer to the commercial egg replacers. From Vegetarian Times, January 2007."

    Sorry this did not "bind" the brownie mix together, it was very crumbly unfortunately. Maybe with some tweaks it might work better or just not in a brownie mix.

    I made a triple batch of this to use in place of three eggs in a cake mix. The cake turned out well and baked fine, but the egg substitute left a nasty bitter aftertaste. I don't think I'll use it again.

    This saved my life in a cake i was making, though it did thicken the batter. Thanks, though.

    I used this vegan egg replacer to make your vegan cornbread that I love so much and it turned out perfectly! You can't tell egg wasn't used. I will us this for a vegan cooking demonstration this weekend. Thanks!


My husband and I married straight out of college in July of 1992. I work as the Assistant Manager at a wine shop which allows me to drink on the job! (OK, not that much, but it's still a fun job...) Besides helping customers choose wine they will like (and also help with food and wine pairings for their menus), I also get to help with the catering end of the business, so I get to spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen making fun appetizers and beautiful food displays. I also work part-time at the fromagerie next door. So yeah - that means I eat on the job, too. :^D We live on several peaceful wooded acres on a cute little river in rural NE Wisconsin, with a cranky old-lady Burmese and whatever stray outdoor cats that have decided to adopt us on any given day. The cute puppy in the picture is Jake, our Elhew-bred English Pointer that we brought home on Easter weekend 2007. I've also got 2 painted turtles named Dennis and Fuzz, and a bunch of fish (koi and goldfish, along with the guppies & swordtails in the turtle tank). I USUALLY eat and cook healthy, but I rarely pass up dessert, either. I do not eat red meat, and try to limit other animal products, too. I love to bake, although I seem to collect a lot of scone and biscotti recipes which I NEVER get around to making. I bake and eat A LOT of cookies and muffins... I almost always reduce the sugar by 1/4 and use whole wheat pastry flour for at least part of the flour. Those two changes do so much to make recipes healthier without compromising taste. I try to reduce fat whenever I can, too, but while I want to eat healthy, I still want to ENJOY what I eat!!! I seem to give a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews here - I seem to have a pretty good sense of what I like by looking at a recipe before I try it. Thank you to anyone that tries my recipes in return, or photographs them.
