How to Make a Flax Egg

It’s easy to make a flax egg and it’s a great substitute when you need something binding in a recipe or you need an egg substitute for baking. We use flax eggs in a lot of our recipes like tempeh sliders, vegan Italian meatloaf, and vegan spaghetti & meatballs.

A flax egg combines only two ingredients – ground flaxseed and water. You can purchase pre-ground flax or you can grind whole flaxseeds yourself using a spice grinder.

Mix ground flaxseed with water and let the mixture sit for about ten minutes to thicken before using in your recipe.

That’s it! Flaxseed and water makes a flax egg. See measurements below:
