Egg Substitutes for Vegans

Who doesn't love the warm fuzzy feeling of serving up fresh baked chocolate chip cookies or warm apple pie? Those foods and the traditions that accompany them are incredibly important, particularly when we've totally transformed our diet and lifestyle. But we don't have to be left out! In fact, we can still  easily serve up the most decadent cupcakes at the party! For most of us who have enjoyed baking before becoming vegan, finding substitutes for eggs may seem like a frustrating task. Fortunately, there are solutions out there which work really well. I gathered these from a few different sources and most of these I have tried out with great results. While baked goods are generally not the healthiest of vegan options, they serve as an important bridge in wowing others and helping to convince folks that you don't have to fill your recipes with bad cholesterol to get maximum flavor and make dazzling deserts. Many of these you might recognize, or already use, but hopefully this helps those who are just new to the world of ‘vegan baking’.

Each of these equal one egg:

  • 1 T flax seed grounded and 3 T of hot water
  • 3 T chia seeds and 1 T water
  • ¼ cup of applesauce
  • ¼ cup of warm water and 1 t of yeast
  • ¼ cup of pumpkin/squash puree
  • 1 t vinegar and 1 t baking powder
  • 2 T of warm water, ½ t oil, and 2 T of baking soda, (careful with the baking soda—if you accidentally put too much in a recipe it’ll ruin it)
  • ¼ cup of bananas (mashed)
  • 1 ½ T of apple cider vinegar or oil, 1 ½ T of warm water, and 1 ½ T of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of water and 3 T vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup of warm water and 1 t of psyllium seed husk
  • 3 T of veganaise

 I hope this helps y’all and if you like this post, please vote and/or leave a comment!

    Hey everyone - Yes, several posts were taken down this morning for not being original. We have a new feature on our end that allows us to identify non-original posts, even if a very small part was copied. For instance, most/all of the items on this post were taken from here: We know we have a community full of bright minds and are looking forward to reading their original thoughts and ideas!

      I apologize for the misunderstandings related to this post. A friend of mine sent me the list of egg substitutes and I didn't know it was just copied off another website. Since my family and I use most of what's on the list I felt it was worth a post so it could help those who hadn't heard of these substitutes. I will try to make sure my posts are more original and informative for us all. Thanks for such a great website to post and share ideas!

    Voted. There are a lot of great ideas here for egg substitutes - I had no idea you could use all of these! I am a fan of flax seeds myself, and often use them for baking. I have just used them in my latest recipe, Sweet and Fruity High-Fibre Pancakes, please check it out and vote if you like it! :-)
