Eggless Recipes15 Eggless Recipes

I know that lately, eggs have been hard to come by at the store and even if you do find them, you might only be able to get a limited quantity. If you happen to have a large family or do lots of baking, you know that one dozen eggs aren’t going to stretch very far!

I feel very lucky that we have access to eggs right now as we are currently in self-isolation with my family (and their chickens!), but in times past, we’ve had to deal with very limited eggs. If you are looking for a larger amount of egg free recipes, definitely check out my ebook, Frugal Gluten Free. Not only are the recipes in it gluten free, but they are also dairy and egg free or they offer alternatives!


Egg Substitutions

Depending the recipe you are trying to make, you might be able to get along with one of these egg substitutions. Here are some that I have used in the past.

  • 1/4 cup applesauce = 1 egg
  • 1/2 mashed banana = 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons nut or seed butter = 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax seed + 3 Tablespoons water = 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seed + 3 Tablespoons water = 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Agar Agar + 1 Tablespoon water = 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Gelatin + 3 teaspoons warm water = 1 egg

Keep in mind that these substitutions will not work in all recipes, especially those that use multiple eggs. However, these are good ideas if you just need an egg or two in a recipe.

Ok, let’s get to the yummy recipes!
