A simple guide on how to make a great egg substitute for vegan / plant-based cooking and baking. One flax-egg replaces one regular egg.


  • 1 round heaping Tbsp. ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)
  • 2 1/23 Tbsp. warm water


  1. Add flaxseed to water and stir. Let sit for about 5 minutes and allow to thicken. Use in place of 1 egg.


*I did not invent this recipe, but have adapted for my own use from time to time. I discovered it early on in my plant-based cooking journey and it’s pretty much the industry standard for vegan egg replacers.
