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!



  1. This is really handy to know! Occasionally, I run out of eggs, but I seem to always have chia on hand….. and water…. 🙂 Thanks for the tip!
