Step by step tutorial on how to make a 2 ingredient flax egg. It only takes 5 minutes to create the perfect egg substitute for baking!



1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal

3 Tbsp. lukewarm water


1. Combine flaxseed meal with water and set aside for 5 minutes or until mixture becomes thick and gelatinous.

2. Add to recipes in the place of 1 chicken egg.


*Please keep in mind that this conversion is not necessarily 1:1 as in recipes containing 3+ chicken eggs the traditional eggs contribute to a rise and a stiffness that cannot be replicated with a flax egg. Flax eggs operate as binders in certain recipes and add moisture. I like to use them in muffins, dessert breads, oatmeal bakes, and pancakes.

*This is not my own recipe but one I have found to be consistent across food blogs and vegan cookbooks.
