A flax egg is an egg replacer for those vegans among us. Once you get the hang of making it, it won’t take you any time at all.
Flax meal is another ingredient I have had difficulty acquiring, however flax seeds are in every supermarket and cheap! Making your own flax meal is easy as well it just requires a lot of blending (5-10 minutes) until fine.
Ingredients for 1 flax egg:
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 2-2.5 tbsp water
- Mix the two ingredients together until combine and stand aside for 5 minutes or more. I usually whisk it slightly before mixing it in with the other ingredients.
- Depending on what I am baking I either use 2 tbsp of water to get a less watery consistency or 2.5 tbsp if more watery.
