How to make a flax seed egg

Eggs have increased in price since the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic outbreak, so what can we use if we are out of eggs?

Instead of using a raw egg for recipes, you can substitute a “flax seed egg” which is ground flax seed (I use organic and it is $2.29/lb in the bulk bins ~ or ~ you can buy it in a pre-measured bag).

Use a “flax seed egg” for these recipes:
  • French toast
  • Banana bread
  • Cookies

Directions / Ingredients:
  1. Use ground whole flax seed (or use pre-ground flax seed).
  2. 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed.
  3. 3 tablespoons of water.
  4. Mix flax seed and water ~ and let sit for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Note: Double the recipe if your recipes calls for 2 eggs.
