  • The ingredients won't bind together, or rise when baking...you'll end up with a soupy concoction!

  • Sometimes you can just add water and eat the batter, that might be just as yummy... I don't think they are going to turn out without eggs anyway.

  • I have made them with Ener-G egg replacement and also with cornstarch (2 Tbs CS and 2 Tbs H20 per egg) and that works ok, not as good with the egg though. My LO is allergic to eggs, so he knows no difference. The cornstarch brownies are normal to him.

    ONE (1) egg equals any one of the following:

    1.

    2 Tbs. flour
    ½ tsp. oil
    ½ tsp. baking powder
    2 Tbs. liquid
    2.

    2 Tbs. water
    1 Tbs. oil
    ½ tsp. baking powder
    3.

    1 Tbs. flaxseed* (ground in coffee mill)
    3 Tbs. warm water
    4.

    1 Tbs. gelatin or fruit pectin
    3 Tbs. warm water

    Yogurt, mashed banana, applesauce, pumpkin, or other pureed fruit or vegetables are good replacements for eggs in muffins or cakes.

    To replace eggs in casseroles, burgers, or loaves try mashed vegetables, tahini, (sesame seed butter) nut butters or rolled oats.

  • I have heard of using prune baby food as a substitute, and applesauce. Its 1/3 cup of applesauce = 1 egg. My mom has tried it and it wasn't bad. Not as good as with eggs, but definitely edible and convenient when in a bind!
