Flax Seed Egg Replacer


Flax Seed Egg Replacer
Did you know that flax seed can be used as an egg replacement in baking? Well, it can and below is the method.
Serves: equivalent of 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon golden flax meal
  1. Grind the golden flax seeds into a meal in a blender or spice grinder. You may want to grind a larger amount and store it for future use. Like flax oil, flax seeds are extremely perishable so if you grind a larger amount for later use, store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one year. 1 cup of golden flax seeds equals about 1 ⅓ cup of flax meal.
  2. Add the water to a small bowl or cup. Add the flax meal and mix together with a whisk or fork. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes so it develops a gelatinous texture similar to a raw egg. Warm water will speed up this gelling process and make it happen about twice as fast.
  3. This method won’t work when a smooth, creamy texture or a uniform light color is desired; the flax seed particles will make soft ingredients such as frostings and sauces grainy and light colored cakes will have golden flecks
