Make Your Own Egg-Replacer

Are you looking for a great Egg-Replacer? Ener-G makes a really good one. However, you can also use ground flax or chia and water to make a great egg replacer.  A coffee grinder is a great tool for grinding the seeds.

To make the equivalent of 1 egg use:
1 Tablespoon of chia or flax (ground)
3 Tablespoons of water

Mix them together and let them sit for awhile (a couple of minutes). You should see it thicken. Then add it to your favorite recipe. This is perfect for baking. Flax gives a slightly nutty flavor.

Not only are these a great way to replace an egg they also provide health benefits. Which is better for you, the flax or the chia? Check out this great visual on to show you a breakdown!
