Chia or Salba Gel as an Egg Substitute
Last updated on April 18, 2008
Here’s good news for vegans or anyone else who doesn’t include eggs in their diets: chia or Salba gel can be used as an egg substitute in any recipe.
To replace one egg, mix 2 tablespoons of chia with half a cup of cold water. This makes 1/4 c. of chia gel. This is a different ratio of chia to water than is used in the basic chia gel recipe.
I haven’t tried this yet but Alisa over at Just Baking has a delicious-looking recipe for vegan banana muffins using chia gel as an egg replacer. I’m going to try a similar recipe soon and will report back on my results!
