I have gluten, dairy and egg sensitivity, when substituting eggs what is your best recomendation for breads etc.

Hi Johnsoda2

Supposedly ground flaxseed is a substitue for eggs. Add 3 TBsp ground flaxseed to 1/2 cup plus 1 TBsp boiling water, let sit for 15 mins, then whisk with fork.. It is supposedly equalivant to 3 eggs. So if you need just one egg, I guess you could 1/3 it.

Good luck

:)

I've used flaxseeds as an egg replacer successfully in baking baked goods (I haven't tried it with yeast breads though). For one large egg, take 1 tbsp of flaxseeds and 1/2 c water, blend until the consistency of a beaten egg.

Ener-G Foods also has an Egg Replacer, I have also used that successfully with baked goods.

I use the flax with my homemade breads and it tastes great!


Whole family is allergic to Gluten, eggs, dairy, most are allergic to garlic. Few other various allergies.

Did you know it's best to wait until 21 months to give a baby wheat??

What if you can't eat flax seed? I don't seem to do well with that.

Ener-G foods has an egg replacer product, you can find it in most health food stores and sometimes grocery stores that have a special food section (organic packaged products, natural packaged items, diet or allergy items).

It comes in a box and these are the ingredients:

Potato Starch, tapioca starch flour, leavening (calcium lactate [not derived from dairy], calcium carbonate, citric acid), sodium carboxymethylcellulose, methylcellulose
