[Recipe] Chia Seeds Gel As Egg Substitute in Baking

I have a slight obsession with banana loaf. If you ask my beloved, maybe “slight” is an understatement ha! I have several banana loaf recipes on my blog and I have just featured a vegan and dairy friendly version two weeks ago.

When it comes to baking, one of the frequently asked questions I received was what I would do to substitute egg.

Instead of commercial egg replacement such as xanthan gum, I thought I would go for something that I am more familiar with such as chia seeds which I have learned from a friend that you can use chia seeds gel as a binding agent in a baking recipe.

To replace an egg, I used 1 tablespoon of chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water and let the mixture sit for 15 to 20 minutes or you can prepare it the night before.

    Great post! I’ve done this with ground up flax seeds too.
