Egg Replacements in BakingBy: Bob's Red Mill | October 26 2017
Starting out a new diet can be tough, no matter your reason for changing your habits. The hardest part is typically avoiding your favorite foods, and this can be made tougher if you are trying to avoid something that turns out to be in more recipes than you thought. Once we start to look at ingredient labels or pay attention to recipe lists, it can be very surprising how often you will find certain ingredients you may be trying to avoid, and eggs are an egg-cellent example of this. It turns out, the more you start to look, the more eggs you will find. Do not worry, though; an egg allergy won't be the end of the world. There are a surprising number of egg substitutes you can use when baking, and you will not even know the difference! Even if you are not avoiding eggs, but simply run out mid-recipe, this list will help you to learn about how to bake your favorite recipes without them.
I would like it if each designer of a recipe containing eggs, would add an option to make it egg free. When I come across a recipe that has an egg in it, I do not have the slightest clue as to the role that egg has in that recipe. But the designer of the recipe knows exactly why she put the eggs in there, so she is the best person to tell us which egg free option works best for her particular recipe.

I am allergic to eggs so I prefer your product! Love it in cornbread and the corn bread does not seem dense...what gives?
