I have seen egg substitutions descussed around here. Try using the Google feature. You might find some things. I wonder if applesauce would work in pancakes like it does in gluten cake?

We used the egg replacer "EnerG" in a bread recipe and it seemed to work just fine!

It's weird, but when I eat eggs (scrambled with water or plain, fried or hard boiled) I feel nauseous, but baked IN things, like bread...no problem...go figure!?

I turned up allergic to egg yolks (egg white is a more common allergy), but I can handle an egg in any baked recipe without problem...it is weird.

Eggs flare up my daughter's Eosinophilic Esophagitus.

I feel that baking without eggs + gluten free has been a huge challenge. I highly suggest Cybele Pascal's Allergen Free Baker's Handbook.

Egg replacers

chemical reaction vinegar and baking soda

Ener-G egg replacer

gelatin

applesauce

banana

some baby food puree (some just don't do it for me, yuck)

flax and warm water

yeast

The list is quite long and it really depends on what type of thing you are making and how well the replacement flavor blends into the recipe and the resulting texture. Just know it can be done and done well, that cookbook is great!

''How did you figure it out?''

Eggs was the hardest of all of my intolerances and allergys to "figure out" for me. I was eating them daily at the time.

I did an elimination diet and had an intense reaction when I reintroduced eggs. I then had an allergist confirm my allergy to eggs.

I dont use egg replacers (yet any way) because I am not currently baking.( I havent found a flour mix that works well that does not contain potato flour)

I'm allergic to egg whites. Eating eggs by themselves have made me sick since I can remember, but I had an allergy test done and that's what showed up.

It is very hard to bake without eggs, BUT you can skip the egg in a pancake. I just tried it recently, and I didn't notice. Except I didn't feel gross after I ate them. :)

I can handle eggs in baked goods, as long as it's 1 or 2 eggs. Over that and I can start to feel it. For breads, I use olive oil to replace the fat that would come from the egg, and add a little more yeast to help it rise more. I also use gelatin and less gum in the bread. Sometimes I use the egg replacer when the egg is a leavening agent, but I can't say that I think it's great. I'm still experimenting. My next try is going to be the flax/chia slurry. :ph34r:

I accidentally found out through a allergy blood test. Since cutting them out my often late ngiht sore throats went away and I now sleep through the night (used to wake up to everything). I probably would have never figured out on my own. Recently, I ate some gluten-free bread that contained eggs and I woke up all through the night, just like the good ol days. Interesting.

I've hears (never tried it) that the "gel" created when you let chia seeds soak in water for 5-10 minutes makes an awesome substitute for eggs.

Chia seems to be very expensive, so I haven't tried for an egg replacer yet.

Thanks for the recommendation of Cybele Pascal's baking book. I have been gluten-free for 2 years and recently found out I also react to Dairy/Soy and Egg. To make it even more difficult my 13 year old is Gluten/Dairy/Soy & Egg and my 10 year old Soy and Egg! Aaaaaagh! I live on a small island in the Caribbean and have very limited access to any kind of health food store so the challenges are beyond ridiculous. Have downloaded this book to my iPad and look forward to trying out some of the recipes. Thanks again.

I have substituted gluten free flour mix that I have had on hand because I ran into problems finding the super fine rice flour.

Tom Sawyer gluten free flour mix was great in the recipes it has a bit of gelatin in it.

Happy baking! Time, patience, and practice.

I'm very allergic. Took me a VERY long time to figure it out.

When we lived in NY I often ate eggs for breakfast. I was doing low carb then. I had to drive daughter to school right after breakfast. I would need the toilet and it would be hard to get out the door. Then once home I could barely get in the door before I had to go again. I didn't make the connection to the eggs and assumed it was the stress of driving on the bad streets and in heavy traffic. I used to alternate meals between eggs and cottage cheese. I had a dairy allergy that I didn't know of either!

Moved to WA and about a year later, daughter was diagnosed with food allergies that included eggs and dairy. So I quit eating them.

Then one day I got some egg salad from a salad bar. I ate it and about 16 hours later I got very sick. I thought maybe it was food poisoning but the time frame didn't seem right. Ate the rest of the egg salad and this time about 2 hours later had the same sickness.

Then some months later, I bought eggs for my husband but he didn't eat them. So I boiled them and made egg salad. Ate some. 16 hours later got sick. Still didn't make the connection. Ate half an egg salad sandwich for lunch on Thanksgiving then went to my parent's house where 2 hours after eating the sandwich I was dashing to the bathroom. Then I made the connection!

Finally decided to get tested. Mine is an IgG allergy. So it is often a delayed response. Unlike an IgE allergy which can give (but not always) instant symptoms and can kill you!

Daughter and I have outgrown some allergies and have developed new ones. But the egg allergy for me remains.

What I use for a substitute varies. I made a Betty Crocker yellow cake the other day with Ener-G egg replacer and daughter said it was very good. I didn't try it because I don't like cake. For heartier things like zucchini bread I use ground flax and water. For meatloaf I use babyfood squash. But mostly I try to cook and bake things that don't need any eggs. It's just easier.

Haven't had much success with pancakes. Years ago bought a mix that only required orange juice. Those pancakes were out of this world! But don't remember the brand and haven't found it since. Everything else I have tried leaves a thin layer on the pan that is next to impossible to clean off. Alas, daughter loves pancakes.

I was never a big egg eater in the past. After going gluten-free, I made some hard boiled eggs to help up my protein intake. After eating one, I got very bad acid reflux - so that was the end of that! :P

Oddly enough I can tolerate them only if they are baked into something. I guess because I'm only getting trace amounts of it.

This is where I get my chia seeds. Just started using them and really like them, but haven't used them as egg replacer. Just wanted you to know about this source.

They also have a huge selection of Certified gluten-free foods.

I get sick after I eat pancakes when I add eggs to mix. Any thoughts? What egg substitiutions do you use?

I have IgG reactions to Gluten, Dairy, Eggs and Soy. When I talked to my allergist (Dr. Newhall in Chicago) about the Egg allergy and the fact that I was having such a difficult time baking without them she told me that a large percentage of people with an Egg allergy can tolerate small amounts of egg when they are baked "in things" in an oven heated to at least 350 degrees F and for more than 20 minutes. The reasoning behind this is that the egg protein will break down when heated to a high enough temperature for a long enough period of time which will make it easier for my body to digest.

What this means for me is that I still can't cook pancakes with eggs (I use flax gel with the Namaste brand pancake mix, almond milk, and the Enjoy life mini-chocolate chips and it rocks! Plus it is potato starch free!)and cookies are pretty much a no-go too, since they only cook for about 9 minutes a pan. I can however eat brownies again (2 eggs with the King Arthur Flour brand gluten-free brownie mix) and have eaten a specially prepared cake made with eggs from Rose's Wheatfree Bakery in Evanston, IL. So, though scrambled eggs, mayonnaise, and french toast will always be out of the question, I have been able to reintroduce a few foods which has made my dietary restrictions just that much easier.

Good luck! You can do this!

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Thanks for the replies. I have been trying since Friday tohave my results emailed to me and I am still waiting. I've rung four times now and each time they say they are going to email them. I will post them once I receive them :-) I have a feeling that the test I had in 2014 was just a screening test as it was six months or so before my endoscopy. I am assuming this one would be the full testing but you never know. He didn't really give me information just that he was ordering a blood test for Celiac and an ultrasound on my gallbladder and I didn't know what questions to ask. He read the histology report to me but that was like a different language lol and there were a few little things that he mentioned like duodenum cells in stomach(?), still the severe reflux even though I am on two lots of medications, Barretts unchanged and melanin throughout my colon - which he said was due to the overuse of laxatives ... I've never had laxatives and of course the lymphocytes in the duodenum but I can't remember if he said there was damage to the villi!   Anyway, fingers crossed the elusive email comes through soon!  Thanks for humouring my lack of knowledge and supporting me through my impatience this week - I only have a small time frame where my husband is home and I want answers so I can get organised before he leaves xxx
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My dentist removed mine as he discovered problems with them.  He used a rubber dam to be sure no mercury would be lost down my throat.  When I had just a couple Amalgams left, he decided to remove them .  He felt they likely had problems he couldn't see yet, as the other old fillings all had  decay. As he worked, those two were also having decay.  The deal was that insurance would cover the replacements IF the fillings were bad, but if there was no noted problem, they would not cover it.  I would consider having these removed by a dentist trained in using the rubber dam IF I were having health trouble that might be related to them.
    • Menstrual Pads for those with DH
      I use to react possibly because of the plastic, I don't really know why.  I use naturo-care which is made from bamboo fiber.  I don't know what the price per pad is. 
    • Lots of symptoms and just got a rash but is it DH?
      Forgot to mention - I've also been very tired these past 2 weeks.  Pretty much sleep, eat,  and sometimes go to work if I'm up for it.  I also lost 6lbs since December when my symptoms started.  I'm 5'9 and usually 128. 
    • Lots of symptoms and just got a rash but is it DH?
      Hi   So now I'm 95% sure I have celiacs.  I've been going through so much pain and sickness for the last 3 months.... Feeling like I'll never get better.  I'm a 25 year old otherwise healthy,  active female.  I finally had a colonoscopy Thurs. Waiting on results.  My GI wants to rule out crohns.  I have yet to talk to him about celiacs.    I have a rash on inner thighs by vagina and goes around to butt,  slightly itchy,  burns,  some look like pimples, some red dots,  almost perfectly symmetrical.  Other current symptoms - alternating constipation/diarrhea with black specs,  neck pain like whiplash,  ears constantly popping/clogged (about a year) ,  vision flickering like I'm blinking but not - multiple times an hour,  left knee pain when pops,  low platelets (128), nausea/stomach pain after eating certain foods usually vomit, sharp pain bellow belly belly button &  to the left, pins and needles in legs/arms when sitting multiple times a week,  bright red dots like cherry angomas,  confusion with thoughts.  Thanks for your input

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
