"Zen in the Art of Baking" is a real thing for me. I really love playing with traditional recipes and transforming them into cruelty-free treats. I'm always on the lookout for ways to substitute traditional ingredients. This was one of the first tips I learned when setting out on my vegan adventure.
This baking hack is SUPER easy to execute. Use 2.5 tablespoons of water for every 1 tablespoon of flax meal (ground flax seeds), this formula equals 1 egg. Simply double or triple the amount depending on what your recipe requires.
That's it! I love it when it's easy.
This method worked for me the very first time I tried it and I've been using it ever since.
Flax Meal Egg Substitute
1 TBSP, flax meal (ground flax seeds)
2.5 TBSP, water
Thoroughly mix together the flax meal and water.
Allow to mixture to sit for 5 minutes before use.
*This recipe = 1 egg
