What can you use instead of eggs in baking? Flax eggs! Here’s how to make a flax egg, a replacement used in vegan baking.


  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds*
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons water


  1. If your flax seeds aren’t already ground, grind them by placing them in a high speed blender or electric coffee grinder for a few minutes until finely ground. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flax seeds and water. Allow to stand for 15 minutes until it thickens, then give it another whisk. Use as a 1 for 1 replacement for eggs in baked goods like quick breads, muffins, cookies and pancakes.
