How do you make a flax egg?
Flax eggs are amazing for vegan baked goods! One flax egg is made by combining 1 tablespoon ground flax with 2.5 tablespoons of water. Let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken, and use as an egg replacement in baked goods. For this recipe, we're using 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax; 5 tablespoons water).
