Flax “eggs” are a cornerstone ingredient in vegan and egg free baking. We use flax eggs as an egg replacement in many of our vegan baked good recipes.



  • 1 tbsp flax meal (ground flax seed)
  • 2.5 tbsp water


  1. Stir together ground flax and water. 
  2. Let the mixture sit for 15-20 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the flax meal absorbs the water. The final result should be gelatinous and not at all watery.
