How To Make a Flax “Egg”


How To Make a Flax "Egg"

Servings: 1 "egg"


  • 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp water


  • Add flaxseed meal and water to a dish and stir
  • Let rest for 5 minutes to thicken
  • Add to recipes in place of 1 "egg"


It's not an exact 1:1 substitution in every recipe because it doesn't bind and stiffen during baking quite like an egg does. But I've found it to work incredibly well in pancakes, cookies and muffins.
