For cooldocmom - you can use ground flax seed or the best thing is there is a product you can buy online or some health food stores called The Vegg. Its a vegan egg yolk mixture which is fantastic and will knock your socks off. I even make it to pour over asparagus or just to dunk toast sticks in - it really tastes AND SMELLS just like eggs!
