Replace Eggs …. in Your Vegan Recipes

Replacing EggsMy favorite Vegan blogger, Lindsay S. Nixon, with the Happy Herbivore, wrote this post on Replacing Eggs in Vegan Recipes.

She lists just a few options.  Personally, I use egg replacer in most of my baking.  I have also used vinegar in my bread recipe with much success.  She has some great ideas ….

How to Replace Eggs in Plant-based (Vegan) Baking

Below are a few ways to replace 1 egg in baking.

  • 1/4 cup applesauce: add in with wet ingredients but avoid using more than 1 cup total. It works best in breads, muffins, and cakes
  • 1/2 mashed banana: cream banana with sugar to add, although very ripe bananas will increase the sweetness and leave a little flavor. It works best in fat-free cookies, breads, muffins, and pancakes.
  • 2 1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed in 3 tbsp water: can be added as original egg in recipe but can add an earthy or nutty taste. Works great in chocolate recipes, granola bars and oatmeal cookies


If you are interested in trying Egg Replacer, here is my favorite:
