If you're a vegan, one of the most annoying questions you get (besides "where do you get your protein?") is "what do you do about eggs?" A year ago I would have said a good egg replacement is 1 tablespoon ground flax seed, 1/2 cup of soy yogurt, or a cup of soy milk with 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. That still holds true, but the more and more I bake and see what everyone else is going I realized there's dozens of ways to replace an egg.

  1. 1/4 cup applesauce
  2. 1 cup soy milk mixed with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  3. 1/4 - 1/2 cup mashed banana
  4. 1/4 cup of silken tofu
  5. 1/2 cup soy yogurt
  6. 1 tablespoon flax seeds plus 3 Tablespoons water
  7. 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
  8. 1 cup coconut milk mixed with 1 tablespoon ground flax
  9. 1 cup soy milk mixed with 1/4 cup tapioca flour and 1 tablespoon flax seed
  10. 1/2 - 3/4 cup of coconut yogurt
  11. 1 cup of water
  12. 1/4 cup prune puree
Not quite "dozens" but I was going for a subtle Arrested Development reference. I specifically didn't mention the pre-made egg replacements because they cost too much and incorporate a lot of different ingredients which are completely unnecessary. Keep it simple is my baking mantra.
