Vegan substitute for eggs when baking


Looking for a vegan substitute for eggs? You are not a lone! Millions of people are making the switch to using vegan egg substitutes in their baking. I stopped purchasing eggs in 1995, but I certainly didn't stop baking! There are several things you can use as a vegan substitute for eggs. Here are some of your choices:

Ener-g replacer - I always keep a box of Ener-g Egg Replacer on hand. One box lasts a couple of months before I use it all up, so it's handy for when I need a vegan egg replacer for baking. This is a powder that you mix with water and use in place of eggs. It's great for baking! This is my go-to vegan egg substitute for baking things like cakes, cookies, and muffins. You can get it health food stores, as well as on Amazon. Bob's Red Mill also makes a vegan egg replacer powder. I have not tried it yet though, because I've been happy with the Ener-g brand for many years.


Ground flaxseed or chia seed - You can mix together 1 tablespoon of either ground flaxeed or chia seed with 3 tablespoons of water. Once it thickens some you are ready to use it in your baking. It's that simple!

Banana - Most people have bananas on hand in the house at all times or can quickly get one. They can be a great vegan egg substitute in baking. They may add a banana flavor to what you are baking, so keep that in mind. They are great for making muffins, cake, etc. Just take half a banana and mash it up and use it in your baking recipe. Then eat the other half!

Applesauce - I almost always have applesauce on hand and it's not uncommon for me to grab it to use as a vegan egg substitute when baking things like muffins. Just use a quarter of a cup per egg that you are replacing. Yes, it's that simple!

Silken tofu - I use this when I need a vegan egg replacer for something like pumpkin pie. I usually have to buy it at a health food store or online. Just use a quarter cup of silken tofu per egg that you want to replace. Don't waste the rest of the tofu, use it for something!

Aquafaba - This is the liquid that you drain off when you open a can of chickpeas or canned beans. That liquid can be used as a great vegan egg replacer. Just use three tablespoons of the acquafaba per egg that you want to replace. And no, it doesn't give your recipe a bean or chickpea flavor.

These are some of the vegan egg substitutes that you may want to give a try. They are easy to use in your baking and easy to work with. You will have to find what you like best after you give a few of them a try. You may find you like one vegan egg substitute best with certain recipes, and prefer other vegan egg substitutes for other recipes. The good news is that there is a vegan egg substitute for all of your baking recipes. Once you get used to using these ingredients you will never miss eggs in your baking!
