Egg replacer options & using the right one for your recipe

There are many different options to choose from when you need an egg replacer in a recipe. Basically, what you use depends on what you are making.

  • For pancakes, muffins, and fruit breads you can use a banana and/or applesauce to replace the egg in the recipe.
  • To help veggie burgers and falafel hold their shape, a few tablespoons of flour will do the trick.
  • Flaxseeds, ground and mixed with water, make a very healthy egg substitute, though they will not be good for something that is to be light and fluffy. 2 tbsp. flaxseeds with 3 tbsp. water will replace one egg in a recipe.
  • You will need to use something different for a cake that you want to be light and fluffy. Goodbaker.com recommends whisking (whisk well to create lots of tiny light air bubbles!) 
" 1 Tbsp tapioca or corn starch
1 Tbsp potato starch
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp xanthan gum (if you have it) "
This will replace 2 eggs in a recipe.
