Egg substitutes are food products which can be used to Veganize a recipe that calls for eggs in cooking and baking.

How to replace egg in vegan recipes? It really depends on what you are preparing.

Egg yolk (yellow part), which has more fat, may be replaced with a bit of oil with just simple water and Baking Powder.

Egg white is a substance that helps to glue ingredients. It can be replaced by plant-based ingredients that have similar features. For example: smashed banana, partly mashed steam cooked potato, tapioca, rolled oats, etc.

At home


Eggs have three functions: moisture (fat), binding, and leavening.
