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!

    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Yes.  You have to be 100% gluten abstinent when you have Celiac Disorder.  It gets easier to be gluten abstinent, not because you get used to it but because of the negative effects that ingesting gluten causes when you accidentally eat something with gluten.  Nothing tastes good enough to go through a glutening.  As your system heals it will become less tolerant of your occasional lapses into gluten consumption--accidental or otherwise. You have to take this seriously.  You get used to it and there are some wonderful gluten-free options out there.  But you can't go back to gluten and stay healthy.  It just doesn't work that way. Good luck.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment    
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      FlowerQueen is correct.  Once diagnosed with celiac disease, you should never consume gluten again without the risk of becoming very ill (osteoporosis, liver damage, lymphoma, etc.).   I think everyone has trouble in the beginning sticking to a gluten free diet.  That's because gluten is in so many processed foods.  It takes time to learn to read labels, make a safe kitchen, learn to eat out, get your family to support you.  I would advise reading out Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum.  It contains valuable tips for becoming gluten free.  Also, check out the University of Chicago's celiac website to learn about celiac disease.  Knowledge is power!   Everyone has different degrees of damage, but I would say that learning the diet and healing can take months to a year or longer.  The good news is that this is an autoimmune disorder that is treatable -- avoid gluten at all costs!   Take care and welcome to the forum!   
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Not sure what you mean by perfecting your diet? Do you mean accidentally eating gluten?   As to re-introducing gluten again, if you have celiac disease, please DO NOT ever re-introduce gluten again. It's an auto-immune disease, not a food intolerance. It will damage your gut again if you do.  Hope this helps.
    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      First of all, your doctor does not seem to be celiac savvy.  It is so easy for a GI doctor to miss patches of intestinal damage on an endoscopy because the small intestinal wall, if spread out is the size of a tennis court!   How many samples were taken and submitted to a pathologist?  A visual look from the GI often results in nothing!  For example, my endoscopy visual was recorded as normal.  But my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal villi damage (Marsh Stage IIIB).  GI's are supposed to take four to six tissue samples.  I would suggest getting copies of all your lab/procedure reports.  Don't trust me.  Here's the research: http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/diagnosis Next, three months of eating gluten free is not very long.  The reality is that there is a steep learning curve to going gluten free.  You can get "glutened" by kissing someone who just consumed gluten.  You can get it from a shared toaster, coated frying pan, wooden spoon, etc.  Gluten can be hidden in prescription medications, etc.  Do you EVER eat out?   I can tell you that it took me a year to feel pretty good and another to feel really normal!  My learning curve was not so steep since my hubby had been gluten-free for 12 years prior to my diagnosis, so I knew the drill.   You could have something else besides celiac disease.  Like SIBO, Crohn's, etc.  You might consider going back to your GI for another celiac antibodies test to see if you are diet compliant  before looking into other illnesses.   You could have developed intolerances (lactose is a huge one).  These can be identified by keeping a food diary.  They develop because your gut has been damaged (or is continuing to be damaged by gluten).  You might consider digestive enzymes (use certified gluten-free ones) and stick to whole well-cooked foods (including fruit) for a month or so.  I can tell you that I could not eat eggs for years.  Now I eat them daily.  Same for hard-to-digest things like nuts and crunchy fresh veggies!   Check out our Newbie 101 section pinned under the "Coping" section of this forum.  Review it to be sure you really are gluten free.  Then give yourself some time to heal.   I hope you feel better soon!
