Does anyone out there use this? I bought the Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook, and she calls for this in many recipes. Just wondering if anyone's tried it, and how you liked it. I'm having a little trouble finding it, though I've only checked 1 store here so far.

Thanks in advance!

I haven't used the Ener G replacer but I've used Kingsmill Egg Replacer. I bought it from a Health Food store but have since seen it at Superstore & A&P in their healthfood/organic section.

I've only every used it in cake/cupcake mix and it's ok.

I have never used Ener G replacer but I use Kingsmill egg replacer regularly in muffins, cookies and other baked goods. It is available in many places here in our community; A&P, Bulk Barn, Loeb and many health food stores.

I've seen it at a few health food store here in Ottawa (Rainbow Foods) but I'm sure any kind would do.

To be honest, I find that it's just as easy to use another egg sub, such as

1. 1.5 Tbsp water + 1.5 Tbsp oil + 1 tsp baking powder = 1 egg
2. 1 Tbsp water + 1 Tbsp white vinegar + 1 tsp baking powder = 1 egg
2. 3 Tbsp flaxmeal + 1/3 cup water (blended well) = 2 eggs

I use all those rather than commercial egg replacers, because they have potato starch in them and my oldest is allergic to potato! :)

Thanks for the replies. I just read about the flax seed idea yesterday somewhere else, and am intrigued. Fortunately, I have a bag of ground flax seed, so may get to try it today/tomorrow.
And maybe I'll see about getting that Kingsmill one, just to see what it's like.
Thanks again!

I have the celli mix replacer and to be honest I prefer oil/water/baking powder. We have always used 1 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp water 1 tsp baking powder...similar to what Karen uses...but a bit less liquid. I guess if it was an egg anyways you could use a medium egg or a large and that would have different amounts of liquid too.

The powdered replacer might come in handy when needed as a binder (like in meatloaf). I think that in most baking it is needed as liquid, oil and levening.

I have used Ener G egg replacer as well as other brands. Egg replacer works great in most recipes that call for eggs. We usually use it for pancakes and waffles that we make with Bisquick, soy milk and egg replacer. We make a big batch, freeze them and take a few out each morning!
