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!

    • Susan Nash - this is interesting. Do you know anyone who has had success with supplements?  My doctor has just said to me that she has noticed a lot of celiac ladies have thinner hair in later life.  Obviously, that is just her observation. But I am going to ask for some vitamin and mineral testing so I can supplement any shortfall in case that is a problem.  I also am iron anemic which I'm sure isn't helping.   I have also read it is important that people who are worried about hair loss make sure they are eating enough protein.
    • Previous studies have indicated an increase in celiac disease rates in the United States, but these studies have been done on narrow populations, and did not produce results that are nationally representative. View the full article
    • No worries!!! 

      Yes I've been completely gluten free for over a year now, except when I get glutened from restaurants etc. My 'traces symptoms' have always been major bloating and lots of bathroom breaks but now during my gluten challenge so far I've had some super crazy symptoms... varying from loose stools to severe constipation, bloating 24/7, shortness of breath, rash, joint pains, mood swings, brain fog, headaches and some sharp pains similar to brain freeze but worse... the list goes on, but I'm determined to have a definite result! 
    • Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could handle just about anything thrown my way. That was until this disease. I found myself sobbing uncontrollably, not getting out of bed till late afternoon, hiding in the bedroom from my own family, missing work, not being able to make simple decisions, I was getting at most, 3 hours of sleep a night. I would sit up in bed and literally scream out loud in frustration. I asked my wife several times to bring me to the VA Psyc. ward (which she talked me out of). I had no pleasure or happiness in my life even though I have a very supportive wife of 32 years, and two ideal kids with three grandkids. I had NO reason to feel the way I did, but yet, there I was. And like you mentioned, I too had a "Bucket List" per say.  To top it all off, I had this horrible muscle pain in my legs and arms. Joints a little, but the muscles were in constant pain. One month ago they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. At this point I am not willing to accept that diagnosis.  They started me on Gabapentin and these last two weeks I have actually started feeling less pain in the muscles and my mind is bouncing back too. Although the muscle pain came back a bit Sunday, and has me a little concerned. I keep telling myself it has only been 4 months gluten-free, and that it will take time. But I have to admit, I do not have much patience and I want to start feeling better now.   I ran into an old Army friend a few weeks back, and he had been diagnosed in 2009. He told me everything he went through and other than diarrhea and an inflamed throat, his biggest symptoms were depression/anxiety and brain fog. He said his wife was so worried she sold all of his guns. He would sometimes find himself in the backyard just curled up in the grass wondering when it would end for him. Absolute craziness. When I shared the issues I was having he could relate 100%. He said he hasn't met anyone else that went through the same things as him and it was therapeutic for us both. He told me of some places that were Celiac friendly, and we agreed to let each other know when something new hits the market, or any other good news via text. Back in May I searched for a celiac support group near by, but no luck. I stumbled on this forum and it has helped me tremendously. Stories like yours helped to insure me I was not losing my mind. Which, I might add, I told many VA & civilian Psychiatrists that indeed I was. Thanks for your post, and I hope nothing but the best for you, here forward. Dharwood
    • It is enough for the endoscopy, but not for the blood panel.  It could be worth trying for the blood test, but there is a greater chance of it being negative.  I assume you have been gluten-free for a while.  I admire that you were able to do the gluten challenge!  (I guess I should have pulled up your previous posts, but I was busy getting my kid to school.)
