Making Chia Eggs for a Vegan Substitute

If you want to keep your baking purely vegan you can replace eggs with “chia eggs” or “flax eggs.”

For the equivalent of 1 egg use 1 tbsp of ground chia or flax and 3 tbsp of water.  Mix those together and let sit for a few minutes.  It will turn gelatinous.  (So 2 eggs would be 2 tbsp of ground chia or flax and 6 tbsp of water).

This will work exactly like eggs in your dish without changing the taste at all.  Plus you get the added benefits of the chia or flax!
