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

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk water and ground flax seeds together in a bowl until combined, about 30 seconds. Let sit until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.

  • 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.

This is a great substitute for people who don't eat eggs but also for anyone who has found themselves without eggs and in need of a pancake, muffin, or cookie. This also adds some necessary nutrition to your meal. Try adding this to your soup or stew to thicken it! Thank you for the recipe. Read More
