Baking is something that I have always enjoyed doing. It’s a great way to make friends…I mean, really. Who doesn’t enjoy baked goods? When we lived in Japan we used to host these huge parties for dear friends and because of silly train schedules, many of them ended up staying over night. So naturally, in the morning, I had to make a lovely breakfast which always included Joy the Baker’s cinnamon sugar pull apart bread. I was everyone’s best friend on those mornings. 😉

Until recently, I have been a pretty traditional baker. I often times try to incorporate healthy ingredients, like whole wheat flour and flax seeds. I guess adding the extra fiber and nutrition makes me feel better about eating what often times ends up being delicious sugar laden baked goods.

Around the time I went vegetarian, Karl and I also made several friends who happen to be vegan. As someone who enjoys cooking and baking for people, this made me more aware of ingredients with which I was cooking and baking. I decided to start expanding my horizons and learning about how to adapt favorite recipe to plant-based versions. Obviously, one thing I was going to figure out was an egg replacement.

I quickly discovered a popular vegan egg replacer for baking: flax seed and chia seed eggs. When you mix them with water, they develop a gel like substance that works as a great egg substitute for baking. I have tried it in a few different recipes now and I have been very happy with the results! In addition to working well, you get the added benefits of fiber and omega 3 if you use the flax seed method. Bonus!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon flax seed, freshly ground for best results but pre-ground will work

Directions

  1. Mix together the flax seed meal or the chia seeds with water.
  2. Place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to help set the consistency.
