Have you been missing out on delicious baked delicacies simply because they have eggs in them? Then this little post might interest you.
Although eggs are certainly versatile, healthy and an amazing ingredient for cooking and baking; there are also a few reasons why people would require a substitute for eggs. They could be veganism, egg allergy or intolerance and AIP (AIP- Autoimmune protocol diet prescribed for autoimmune conditions such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.) among a few.
In baking, eggs have a lot of advantages. They help in binding, giving the baked item a good texture, leavening, moisture, etc. But here we are with the top three substitutes that work equally well.
The top three substitutes for eggless baking:
1. Applesauce – A thick sauce made of apples. Works best in fruity desserts, cakes, and muffins.
2. Aquafaba – Viscous water in which chickpeas are cooked. This is best for light and fluffy baked goodies.
3. Flax and Chia seeds – They give a good texture to baked items and help in binding them well. Work best in brownies, cookies.
So, what are you waiting for? Go, fulfil your cravings and bake mouth-watering eggless goodies.
