Wonderful substitute for eggs, especially in cookies, brownies, muffins and breads. It works every time. Store ground flax seeds in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist

  • Whisk again, about 30 seconds. Let sit until thickened, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

If you are nervous about the effect, start by replacing only half of the egg called for in a recipe. The flax seed will affect the color and add a nutty taste (plus great nutrition!) but has no effect on texture, rising or baking times.
