How to Make a Flaxseed Egg

Makes equivalent to 1 Egg
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1 heaping Tablespoon Flaxseed Meal*
  • 3 Tablespoons  room temperature filtered water


  1. Combine the two and let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes.  This allows the mixture to gel, creating a texture similar to a beaten egg.  Repeat for each additional egg.
  2. Obviously this won't work for every recipe, but for most it's a great substitution.  Experiment for yourself, and I hope that you are pleasantly surprised!

Recipe Notes

*If you only have whole flaxseeds, simply ground in a dry blender or spice grinder to create a meal.
