Flax- eggs - it is a substitute for eggs - you can make it

Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp (7 g) flax seed meal (ground raw flax seed)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp (37 ml) water
Instructions
  1. Add flax seed meal and water to a dish and stir. Let rest for 5 minutes to thicken. Add to recipes in place of 1 egg.
  2. It's not an exact 1:1 substitution in every recipe because it doesn't bind and stiffen during baking quite like an egg does. But I've found it to work incredibly well in pancakes, quick breads, brownies, muffins, cookies, and many other recipes.
ps- this is not my recipe, searched how to make flax-egg, saw this. I wanted to know how to make for a recipe that I saw now.
