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.
I have baked the following loaves using chia seeds gel in replacement of eggs.

I hope this helps! Emily xx
