Egg Substitutions

Eggs are typically used in a recipe as a binder.  There are many substitutions available.  You will still need to check that there are not other ingredients to avoid.  But, no eggs, no problem! We've gotcha covered.

Some substitutions are:

Baking powder & Oil - for each egg use 2 TBS water, 1 TBS oil & 1/2 tsp baking powder (works well for replacing 1-2 eggs).

Powdered commercial egg replacer – Read label, some contain egg, potato starch, tapioca flour, leavening or corn.

Arrowroot powder – see post on Arrowroot Allergy

Psyllium seed husk powder

Flax seed

Chia seed

Tofu – made from soy

Tapioca flour - LOVE this gel from Cake & Commerce

Banana – adds distinctive taste.  Watch if you have OAS or allergy to ragweed/latex.
