What can I replace eggs with in baking? 15 ideas

Is it possible to replace eggs in baking?

Yes it is! although the texture may not be exactly the same whether you are going vegan or find yourself short of an egg or two there is usually something in your cupboard which you can use as binding/aerating agent.

1 tsp = 5ml

1 tbsp = 15ml

4 tbsp = 60 ml = 1/4 cup

Alternative ingredient replacements for egg

  1. 1 tsp baking + 1 tbsp vinegar (white, apple cider)
  2. 1 tbsp flax seeds + 3 tbsp water (soak seeds for 5-10 minutes)
  3. 1 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water (soak seeds for 5-10 minutes)
