Egg-replacers For Namaste Mixes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've tried the Blondies with an egg replacer and applesauce. They tasted good but the texture was off some.

Does anyone have a Namaste Mix that they love that works really well with a replacer? :)

Thanks!

I have not tried to replace the eggs in any of the mixes, but aren't these just the BEST!!!!

I made the muffins yesterday morning but instead of a cup of water, I used 2 mashed bananas and "about" 1/2 cup water, plus added 3/4 cup chocolate chips. My 10yo was crazy over them "mom these are the BEST muffins EVER, can you make them for my class.....blah blah blah". I also made the brownies last week and subsituted an individual sized applesauce for half the oil. They turned out so good, chewy, moist, like a "real" brownie, even DH, who isn't altogether happy about the new gluten free baking (misses his "old cookies and brownies") seems happy about the Namaste mixes so far. I will be ordering those in bulk!!!

(I am not baking unless I can eat it, which is why he is unhappy, But I am slowly finding things that come close to the old ways.)

Hmmm.. I'll have to go check them out... do they have rice flour in them?

I haven't used this mix either but my favorite egg replacer is 1 1/2T water, 1 1/2T oil, 1 tsp. baking powder for each egg. Have you tried that?

I've also used the waffle mix but I didn't get the results I wanted with those without the eggs. I did like the flavor of the blondies. My co-op is running a special on these mixes by the case and I thought about trying some other things.

From what I can tell most of the mixes do have rice. They're good for those of us who are cooking without soy, dairy etc. Thanks for the replacement suggestion. I'll try that next time. I had been using Ener-G egg replacer with water and applesauce.

I just bought a Namaste Brownie mix, but when I got home I discovered you need to add a CUP of oil...yikes! I'm wondering if I could use something like applesauce for part of the oil. A cup is a horrendous amount of oil for something like that. Any ideas?

I halved the oil and replaced it with a small indivdual size of applesauce (somewhere between 1/4-1/3 cup). They were fine, yummmy!!!! and as good as "normal" brownies, and I have tried SEVERAL different mixes, so far these are the hands down winner in my house.
