Egg Substitute: The Flax or Chia Egg

A lot of us get stumped when we see a favourite recipe that has eggs.  Fortunately, you can easily mimic the egg’s role by creating a Flax or Chia egg substitute in a matter of seconds.

Flax or Chia Egg

Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 1 Egg substitute
Calories: 55kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Either Chia or Flax (or a mix) (ground preferable)
  • 2 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Add to a mixing bowl and stir/whisk thoroughly 
  • Leave to rest for 3-5 minutes

Notes

This recipe is roughly what you use to substitute for 1 egg. So, for example, if you are needing 3 eggs, just triple the ingredients.
 
It doesn't have the same 'sticky' effect that an egg has, but works amazing for things like muffins, pancakes, fritters, cookies, protein bars, etc.
