Egg Replacements

Did you know that you can add moisture, bind and leaven without using eggs!  There are several good commercial egg replacements on the market, including:

  • Ener G Egg Replacer: (widely available & can also be used to replace just egg whites or egg yolks)

  • Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer: (available at most grocery stores and health food stores)

  • Egg Yolk Replacer – The Vegg Vegan Egg Yolk: (available at some health food stores and online)

Or, replace eggs in recipes using basic kitchen ingredients:

Make sure to mix the “egg” replacement ingredients together, and let the mixture rest or sit as directed BEFORE adding it to your recipe.
