It’s gone wild over on Pinterest, and I know it’ll knock your socks off!
For delicious pancakes, try these fluffy whole wheat vegan pancakes Bonus-they don’t call for bananas (bc let’s be honest, almost every eggless pancake recipe does!) So, if you aren’t a fan of bananas, this pancake recipe is for you.
Alright, now that we’ve got the eggs for eating out of the way, time to get into how we can bake all of our favorites without using eggs.
Egg Replacement for Lift in a Recipe
Eggs add air to many baked goods. If this is the primary purpose of eggs in your recipe, then here are the substitutes I’d use instead.
Commercial egg substitute
This is usually the safest bet when you are needing lift in a recipe.
Commercial egg substitute can be used for cakes, muffins, cookies, and brownies.
The cool thing about the commercial egg substitutes is that they perform multiple functions.
Not only do they provide lift, but they also will act as a binder in your recipes.
What is eggless egg substitute?
Eggless substitute is usually a combination of starches and a leavener like baking soda, mixed in the perfect combination to make using the two easy.
Typically, you’ll mix a certain amount (1-2 tbsp) of the dry egg substitute with water, then let it sit for a quick minute to thicken up before adding it to your recipe.
Nutritional yeast has a delicious cheesy umami flavor and I just love using it in tofu scrambles, my Hollandaise sauce, and my chickpea omelet.
Turmeric is my go-to for creating a beautiful golden colour in your recipes. Not only is it a plant (which is way better than using chemical colorants), but turmeric is really high in antioxidents and it has strong anti-inflammatory properties.
