Alternatives For Those With Egg Allergies

My cousin has egg allergies, so she has to find alternatives for her baking. She has shared a few of them with me to share with you.

Flax seed meal, when mixed with the right amount of water, turns into an egg-like texture. It is quite successful in cake mixes and some cookie recipes. You can find flax seed meal in most health food stores and some grocery stores. Here's how it works: Take 1 tablespoon flax seed meal and mix it in a bowl with 3 tablespoons of water. Let it sit for 20 minutes to make the egg-like texture. This works for one egg. If you want two eggs, use 2 tablespoons of the flax seed meal and 6 tablespoons water.

Another alternative is applesauce. Use 1/4 cup applesauce in place of one egg. Applesauce works in some recipes by itself. I like to use it along with the flaxseed meal in cookie recipes.

Lastly, there is pumpkin. This alternative makes pancakes light and fluffy! My cousin generously gave me this recipe to post here.

      Love those pancakes! :)

      Another great egg substitute is apricot. I wouldn't recommend it for all egg substitutes, but I made banana bread with apricots once and it turned out great!
