Advice on: Making a Flax Egg

A “flax egg” is commonly used in vegan baking for muffins and cookies, and it’s a great substitute for the egg-allergic too. Following is the method for replacing one egg, and you can double or triple it as needed.


  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 3 tbsp water


  • Add the flaxseed meal and water to a small bowl. Whisk well.
  • Let the mixture sit 5-7 minutes to thicken. (Place bowl in refrigerator for more gelatinous ‘eggs’.)
  • Stir again before using.
