5 Ways to replace eggs in baking

5 Ways to replace eggs in baking

Vegan? ...no problem!

We've tried our new healthy baking mixes in both vegan and non-vegan versions, both dissapear at the same speed. If you're a newly converted vegan these are 5 different ways to substitute eggs in vegan baking. Tried and tested with superfood bakery mixes.

1. Egg replacer powder

Easy to use, the powder typically contains starch, raising agent, and some kind of acidity regulator. Simply mix it with water in recommended proportion and add it to your dough. In many cases, you can't taste it, but it does the job. Works well for cookies.

2. Ripe mashed banana

This one can be tricky because banana adds moisture and some sweetness, as well as rather obvious banana taste. To replace one egg, take a small whole banana or half of a large one and mash it. If your banana is green, bake it skin-on for 10mins. Perfect for cakes and brownies, works for cookies as well, albeit with a bit of banana flavour. 

3. Chia seeds

To substitute for 1 egg, take 1 tablespoon of chia and mix it with 2 tablespoons of water. Great for cookies. 

4. Flax seeds

Similar to replacing an egg with chia seeds, simply take 1 tablespoon of flax and mix it with 2 tablespoons of water. Adds a bit of a nutty flavour to your oatmeal cookies and bran muffins. 

5. Vinegar and baking soda

To replace an egg, mix 1 tablespoon of vinegar (e.g. apple cider) with 1 teaspoon of baking soda. This replacer is perfect for light and airy cakes and cupcakes!
