    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.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 1 

    • 3 tablespoons very warm water
    • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. Whisk water and ground flax seeds together in a bowl until combined, about 30 seconds. Let sit until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
    2. Whisk again, about 30 seconds. Let sit until thickened, about 2 minutes more.

    Cook's note

    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.
