Other types of food to use as a replacement for eggs

Would you like to eat a vegan meal? Or are you just about to dive into the kitchen, but don’t have any eggs at home? Don’t worry: I’ll save you a rushed supermarket trip. You can also bake something worth eating without eggs!

  1. Aquafaba

The liquid from a can of chickpeas, also called aquafaba, can be used as a substitute for protein. When you whip this up with a mixer and slowly add sugar, you end up with meringue. Super handy! Good to know: aquafaba often works less well as a substitute in other types of batter.

2. Banana

Bananas contain a lot of starch, which makes them a good binder for your batter. Mash one ripe banana to replace one egg. In addition, bananas also add a sweet taste, so you can also partly replace them with sugar. Keep in mind that bananas bind less well than an egg. Do you use bananas for making pancakes? Then carefully flip the pancakes so they don’t fall apart.

3. Chia seeds

You can also replace an egg with chia seeds. It has little taste and will therefore not really affect the taste of your baking. You replace one egg with 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 3 tablespoons of water. Let this stand for ten minutes and you’ll see that a kind of jelly-like structure is created that you can use.

4. Linseed

In addition to chia seeds, linseed also works as a good substitute for eggs. Take 1 tablespoon (ground) linseed and let it stand in water for ten minutes. This also creates a kind of jelly that you can use in the same way as you would with an egg.

5. Applesauce

You can use applesauce as a substitute for eggs during baking. It binds well and brings a fresh taste to your baking. You can replace one egg with three tablespoons of applesauce.

6. Soda water

A very cheap substitute for an egg is soda water. 60 milliliters of soda water is approximately equal to 1 large egg.

  1. I eat eggs every morning and have for about 8 years, my blood work is excellent according my primary care physician, I think the inflammation from junk food is what allows for those negative consequences that vegans are trying to avoid, two different methods leading to a similar healthy result.
