Flax eggs are a really good substitute for chicken eggs because they have a similar consistency and serve the same purpose without the fat, cholesterol or animal cruelty. Plus, one flax egg has 2 grams of fiber and 30 calories compared to zero grams of fiber and 78 calories for a real egg.
You can substitute these for real eggs in many recipes, but you may find some that require a different substitute like applesauce, black beans, chickpea flour, fruit puree or other creative substitutes. View our Vegan Substitutes Guide for other egg substitutes.
This recipe makes 1 flax egg, which equals 1 real egg.
