Ground flax seeds can be used as an excellent egg replacement for baked goods. While they help bind, they do not have natural leavening the way eggs do, so you may need to add 1/2 tsp baking powder to your recipe to keep the texture.
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp water = substitute for 1 egg
Whisk ingredients together and let sit for 10-20 minutes, then whisk vigorously. Or, heat on stovetop or in microwave for 1-2 minutes, until gooey (mixture easily boils over, be careful), and whisk. Cool.
Use in place of eggs in baked goods, no more than two eggs per recipe for best results.
