This week I've been low on eggs, and every time I bake something, I think, "I should use a flax egg replacement." But I don't, because it needs to it needs to sit and soak awhile, and I'm always in a hurry.

So today I took some of the tiny snack containers that I bought at the dollar store and filled each with 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons water. They can sit in the fridge until I need them, and my eggs will last me a little longer.

    1. Yes! A flax egg substitute works well in quick breads, muffins, pancakes, etc. They won't whip up, though.

      I wrote a little more about it here:

  3. I'm not sure if you know it or not, but you can also use soy flour as an egg replacement in baking. I learned that from the Tightwad Gazette!

    1. Um . . . until they get moldy? Just kidding. I don't really know. I wouldn't go past a week, personally, and I'm guessing they'll work better if used sooner rather than later.
