Vegan Egg Substitutes

Vegan Egg Substitutes

Over the past few years I’ve become so much more involved in cooking and cooking most things from scratch. I have always had a love for food and cooking, but baking I HATED. I hated the mess it came with. That is until I had kids well my youngest 2 kids. Even a couple years before. I just grew fond of baking cakes. It actually took me by surprise how skilled I was at baking, when I never baked anything before.

Since going vegan I had to create new recipes that would benefit my family’s health. One of the major reasons of me going vegan was after my 3rd son. He is severely allergic {idk if I’d say allergic anymore because as we all know we aren’t supposed to drink milk from cows} to cows milk, dairy and eggs. He’s the biggest reason for me staying on this path for life. Now I’m happier than ever and food tastes better than before knowing I’m not eating dead animals.

With that being said I needed to find alternatives for baking without eggs and butter. Butter isn’t hard you can use vegan butter with a ratio 1:1. Eggs on the other hand, need to be replaced with a similar texture.


There are two substitutes I use on the regular. When it comes to baking any cakes, cupcakes, brownies, cookies or anything sweet I like to use my chia gel recipe.

Then on the other hand anytime I’m cooking burgers or “meat” balls, I’d rather use a Flax Egg as an Egg Replacement. Just my preference. I’m not sure if one is better than the other it’s just what I’ve done from the start.

They’re both just as simple as adding either the chia seeds or ground flaxseed to the water and letting it sit for 15 minutes to thicken up.

If using the chia gel, one tablespoon of chia gel is equal to one egg replacement in a recipe. If using the flax egg, then you’d use the entire flax egg per one egg in your recipe. I hope you enjoy using these egg replacements in your recipes.

This is the perfect vegan egg substitute to use in my Vegan Pancakes or Vegan Waffles.
