About this recipe: Ground flax seeds are whisked into warm water to make an easy, two-ingredient egg substitute perfect for vegan or egg-free baking.
If you are nervous to try this in your baking, start by replacing only half of the egg called for in a recipe. The flax seed will affect the colour and add a nutty taste (plus great nutrition!) but has no effect on texture, rising or baking times.
This is a great substitute for people who don't eat eggs but also for anyone who has found themselves without eggs and in need of a pancake, muffin, or cookie. This also adds some necessary nutrition to your meal. Try adding this to your soup or stew to thicken it! Thank you for the recipe. - 17 Jun 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
