Learn how to make flax eggs for egg-free baking! Flax eggs are a great solution for vegans and those with egg allergies. They’re also a nice, simple substitute for baked goods if you run out regular eggs. Recipe as written yields 1 flax egg; multiply as needed.
*How to grind flax seeds: You can either start with store-bought ground flaxseed (Bob’s Red Mill offers one) or grind your own. To grind your own, blend at least 1/4 cup in a food processor for about 1 minute, or until it feels like a slightly gritty flour. Store any leftover ground flax in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
More uses for flaxseed: I love to blend a tablespoon or two into my smoothies for some nutty flavor, additional fiber and omega-3s. It’s especially good in my basic blueberry smoothie and banana almond smoothie.
Chia seed alternative: You can also use ground chia seeds in place of ground flaxseeds (same amount and method)!
