Substitue for 1 egg in baking quick bread, pancakeshttp://minimalistbaker.com/how-to-make-a-flax-egg/

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes

Categories: Egg Substitute


  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 2.5 tbsp water


  1. Add flaxseed meal and water to a dish and stir. Let rest for 5 minutes to thicken. Add to recipes in place of 1 egg.

  2. It’s not an exact 1:1 substitution in every recipe because it doesn’t bind and stiffen during baking quite like an egg does. But I’ve found it to work incredibly well in pancakes, quick breads, brownies, muffins, cookies, and many other recipes.
