If you’re an aspiring vegan baker, you need to know about chia eggs and how to use them!

Such a simple egg substitute and they are extremely versatile.

 

How to make chia egg

For one ‘egg’ – combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of lukewarm water, stir to combine and leave for 15-20 minutes.

An easy 1-ingredient chia egg! The perfect egg substitute in vegan recipes like pancakes, waffles, quick breads, cakes, and more!
  1. Add chia seeds to a small dish and top with water. Stir and let rest for 15-20 mins to thicken. (It should transform into a thick, gel-like substance)
  2. The chia egg is not an exact substitution in every recipe because it doesn’t bind ingredients or stiffen during baking eggs do. However, it works very well in pancakes, bread baking, muffins, cookies, and many more home-baked recipes.
