How to Make a Flax Egg (A Vegan Egg Substitute for Baking)
Here's a step-by-step that will walk you through how to make a flax egg for your vegan baking. This recipe will replace one small egg in a recipe. Be sure to read all the info above and the notes below.
With a fork or a whisk, mix for about 1 minute so flax and water are combined and there are no lumps.
Set aside for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, mixture will be this and have the consistency of a regular egg. Whisk again and after that, it's ready for your recipe.
Read all of the info above before getting started.
This recipe will make one flax egg which is an equal replacement for 1 regular egg. The recipe can be doubled, if needed.
Either brown or golden flax seeds can be used to make a flax egg. The only difference between the two is the colour. I like to use golden flax seeds in lighter coloured recipes, like my vegan baked lemon doughnuts.
I prefer to buy whole flax seeds and grind them up as I need them because they last longer.
