We’re always excited to share innovations from inside the world of vegan baking – today we’re looking at flaxseed eggs; what they are and how to make them as well as some tasty vegan recipes to use them in. 

What is a flax egg?

A flaxseed egg acts as an important emulsifier in some vegan baking and other recipes where a few ingredients need to be bound together so they don’t split or separate during cooking.

As flax seeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids and fibre, when they’re combined with a little baking powder and water their fats and fibre act in a similar way to an egg during baking.

You can easily make a flaxseed egg at home by grinding them at home in a coffee or spice grinder. 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds and 3 tablespoons of water = 1 large egg.

Combine your water and ground seeds in a bowl and leave for 30 minutes until you have the consistency of a loose jelly.
