Flax Egg

When you think about it, most baked goods are just different combinations of the same few ingredients. Puddings, cakes, cookies, pies, and breads are all made from a few versatile ingredients (primarily flour, sugar, eggs, milk).

Vegan baking is made much easier by the variety of milk alternatives and the ease of making flax eggs and chia eggs.

Flax Egg

(One egg equivalent)                                                                                                                                                     (5 min)


  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal (ground flaxseed)*
  • 2 1/2 tbsp water

*Can buy it ground or use your coffee grinder/mortar pestal 


  1. Add flaxseed meal and water to a dish and stir.
  2. Let sit for 5 minutes so it thickens.
  3. Use in recipes in place of about 1 egg. Because it doesn’t react exactly like an egg there can be some variation but it works great overall.
