Nearly A Half Dozen Ways to Replace Eggs

Posted Aug 22 2010 11:01pm

IMG_8713 If you’ve watched the news lately you might RECALL seeing something about some bad eggs–and I’m not talking about guys like Mel Gibson.

Indeed there are some fowl eggs out there, but there are still some good ones to be found at places like Turtle Creek Farm, right Vita?

But, in case you are in the mood to bake and you find yourself eggs-free you must not panic. We can take a lesson from The Vegans and play around with nearly a half dozen (also know as four) ways to replace eggs:

  • 1/2 banana blended = 1 egg
  • 1 T ground flax seed + 3 T water, whisked = 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup silken tofu mixed well = 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce = 1 egg

I haven’t tried all of these options out just yet, but I have used the banana substitution successfully in pancakes and muffin recipes calling for eggs. And the slightly nutty flavor of the ground flax seed worked wonderfully in place of the egg in the protein bars I made last week.

Do you have any other suggestions for egg substitutes or should we just go ask Oprah?

Now I really must go grab another cup of coffee and some breakfast…no yolk!
