7 Vegan Egg Replacements

7 Vegan Egg Replacements

Applesauce

Use applesauce to add moisture. Replace one egg with 1/4 cup of applesauce in sweet desserts. If you want a lighter texture, add an extra 1/2 teaspoonful of baking powder, as fruit purées tend to make the final product denser than the original recipe. Applesauce will add some flavor, so make sure that it’s compatible with the other ingredients of the recipe.

Banana

Use ripe bananas to add moisture. One mashed banana can replace one egg in cakes and pancakes. Since it will add a bit of flavor, make sure that it’s compatible with the other ingredients of the recipe.

Flaxseed

Use Flax Seed Meal for binding. Combine 1 tablespoonful of ground Flax Seed Meal with 3 tablespoonfuls of water to make a thick and gelatinous egg replacement. Bonus: Flax Seed Meal is super-healthy.

Chia Seeds

Use the same ratio as the flaxseed mix, and enjoy all the health benefits of chia seeds, which are similar to flaxseed.

Tofu

Tofu is great for egg substitutions in recipes that call for a lot of eggs, such as quiches or custards. To replace one egg in a recipe, purée 1/4 cup of soft tofu. It’s important to keep in mind that although tofu doesn’t fluff up like eggs, it does create a texture that’s perfect for “eggy” dishes. Firm tofu is also a great substitute for eggs in eggless egg salad and breakfast scrambles.

Instant Mashed Potatoes

Instant mashed potatoes are another great ingredient for binding. Use 2 tablespoonfuls to replace one egg in recipes that are meant to be dense.

Diet Soda

Use diet soda as a leavening agent. One can of diet soda can be used to replace two eggs in many cake recipes.
