How To Replace An Egg In A Recipe


As many of you know Camilla and I have been working on The Paleo Pact for the last few weeks now. One of the main challenges I have encountered has been baking everything from scratch. The issue I’m facing is that I’m allergic to eggs, so I needed a quick and good replacement for egg(s). Below is an option for replacing egg(s) and yes I have actually tested this for a few different recipes.


  • 1 tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 3 tbsp. warm water


  1. Mix water and ground flaxseed together.
  2. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. You’re done 🙂 Mix into recipe as directed.

This recipe is for one egg, so make additional according to the number of eggs you need. As a note, this is good for baking breads or cakes- essentially recipes that have 3-4 eggs at a max. If you are trying to recreate a recipe with more eggs than this or make a recipe where it is not cooked, it may not work as you need.

Happy Baking!
