Just add water and you’ll be able to replace whole eggs, egg whites and egg yolks in your favorite recipes. You can buy this product at select Sprouts and Whole Foods locations or order it online through their website.
THE NEAT EGG
The Neat Egg is a healthy, cruelty-free replacement for eggs derived from chia seeds and garbanzo beans. It’s easy-to-mix, all-natural and can be used in your favorite recipes which call for eggs as a binder. It’s even available at Target!
Tofu is amazing in just about everything, especially tofu scrambles. But did you know that you can also use it as an egg replacer? Just be sure to buy the soft, or silken, tofu and you can use it sauces, custards, and quiches.
Applesauce is great for adding moisture to baked goods such as cookies, brownies, and cakes. Just be sure to go with the unsweetened kind.
All sorts of people are being turned on to the magic of aquafaba, aka. “bean juice.” The water left over in a can of garbanzo beans is the perfect alternative to eggs for making fluffy vegan meringue and whipped cream.
Just one tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with three tablespoons of water will replace one egg. A flax egg is great in baking and is incredibly healthy – it’s an excellent source of Omega-3s and fiber.
