Replace Eggs in Recipes With This Trick!

By Gillian B Whether you are vegan, or you or someone you are feeding has food sensitivities, sometimes you do not want to use eggs. Whatever the reason, I have an egg replacement solution — and it is so simple! Anywhere you see eggs used as a binder in a recipe (to keep ingredients together), such as in a healthy muffin recipe, you can use this little trick to replace the eggs and bake delicious treats that everyone can enjoy! P.S.: This is a video that I shot several years ago when I was just getting my YouTube account going. Oh, how much I have grown! https://youtu.be/7i_l2Vk8O2Q You can use either chia seeds or flax seeds for the egg swap, because when either is put in liquid, they puff up like the Michelin Man, and create a gel-like coating that is SO good for our digestive tract. chia-seedsThis gelatinous or soluble fibre is formed when chia or flax seeds meet a liquid, and it is extremely powerful in helping the body to detoxify the hard-to-excrete substances we take in from the environment and foods we eat. How to Make “Seed Eggs":
  1. Mix 1 tbsp of flax or chia seeds with 3 tbsp water or nut milk and leave it for a 5-10 minutes to set up into a gel.
  2. Mix into your recipe just as you would a real egg.
Examples of methods where seed eggs will not work:
  • Souffles
  • Meringues
  • Omelettes
  • Anywhere real eggs are the base of a recipe, the structure, or they are used to fluff up ingredients.
