The Best Egg Substitutes for Food Allergies and Vegans

Recently I have had so many clients who are allergic to eggs or because of their vegan convictions need some good swaps. Personally I love organic eggs, but for anyone who is sensitive below are a couple of great swaps. While having allergies is awful. Food sensitivities make us pay more attention to the ingredients in our food. So turn your allergy into a fun experiment in the kitchen. Let me know the results or if you have any other suggestions!

Using 1/4 cup of pureed pumpkin, applesauce or banana for 1 egg.

1 tablespoon of flax seed and stir it into 3 tablespoons of warm water. It doesn’t take long and that mixture gets all gelled up. It works very well in place of eggs and contributes some extra benefits from the flax!

2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon oil, and 2 teaspoons baking powder.

I have heard but have not tried it personally that you can substitute a can of seltzer for any recipe that calls for an egg and a cup of oil!
