How To: Make a Vegan Egg (For Baking)

Eggs are so easy to replace when you’re baking! You can use things like applesauce (which sounds like it would taste better, anyway), flax meal, chia seeds, bananas, and even instant potatoes. In this post, I’ll teach you how to make egg replacements for vegan baking.


Applesauce can add moisture to a recipe you are trying to make vegan. to replace one egg, use 1/4 cup of applesauce. You may need to add an extra 1/2 tsp of baking soda, as applesauce (and other puréed fruits) can make the end product more dense. Also, make sure the applesauce is compatible with the other flavors in the recipe.


Flax Meal

Have you ever heard of a flax egg? Well, this is what that means! Flax seed is a binder, like eggs. All you have to do is combine 1 tbsp flax meal, with 3 tbsp water, and put in the fridge to help it get gelatinous.


Chia Seeds

These work the same way, as the flax seed/meal! You can make it will the whole seeds, or try to make a meal yourself.



1 ripe banana can replace 1 egg in cakes and pancakes, and add moisture. Just as with applesauce, make sure the other ingredients will compliment the taste of banana.


Instant Potatoes

I never knew about instant potatoes being able to replace eggs in recipes, until I saw it on this PETA article. 2 tablespoons of instant potatoes can replace 1 egg in recipes that are meant to be dense.


Now you know. You can use a variety of foods to replace eggs in many different baked goods!
