Hey you little chocaholics, when I say “no egg for you!” I’m not talking about Easter eggs, ok? I’m talking about hen eggs. Some people just can’t eat them – get sick when they do and avoid as a result.
When baking or adapting recipes that require eggs, I’ve been familiar with people using substitute products such as No Egg – which is fine. However, recently leafing through one of my current favourite cookbooks, I found a list of other pantry items that can do the trick! I just had to share.
To replace one egg, you can use one of the following:
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds with 3 tablespoons water (let sit for 15 mins)
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons warm water
- 1/4 cup cooked pumpkin
- 1/4 cup puréed prunes
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1/4 applesauce
Hey now, this is great advice! (courtesy of Tania Hubbard)
