Seven effective substitutes for eggs

Whether you are vegan, allergic to eggs, or just have no more eggs in your fridge, it’s good to know that there are many ways to replace eggs in your recipes!

In this article, I present to you the seven most effective substitutes for eggs…

1- Flaxseeds
1 egg = 1 tbsp. ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp. water (let sit for 5-7 minutes).
Use in the preparation of cookies, cakes, and muffins.

2- Chia seeds
1 egg = 1 tbsp. ground chia seeds + 3 tbsp. water (let sit for 5-7 minutes).

3- Mashed banana or applesauce

4- Aquafaba (chickpea water)
Aquafaba is the liquid leftover from cooked chickpeas. You can have it when you reserve the liquid from a can of chickpeas. This water whips like egg whites to create a firm and light foam.
1 egg white = 3 tbsp. aquafaba
Use in the preparation of mousses and meringues.

5- Corn starch

Agar is a marine red algae that is naturally gelatinous.
