So, you’ve been coasting along on your vegan journey when a potentially less-obvious animal product throws a wrench in your plans… eggs. Don’t worry! From brunch to baking, we have you covered. New options for vegan egg substitutes are popping up more frequently than ever. Remember, if the first option you try isn’t your new favorite, there are plenty more out there!

Eggs have many properties in cooking and baking, from binding and thickening to rising and glazing. Mimicking the texture and taste of eggs with plant-based ingredients can require a little more effort, but it can be done.

By learning a few DIY baking hacks and exploring shop-bought vegan egg replacements, you can recreate your favorite scrambled egg recipe or substitute eggs in baking.

Here’s our ultimate guide to vegan egg substitutes for all your baking and cooking endeavors.

Vegan egg substitutes for baking

Ener-G Egg Replacer

If you want an egg replacer to keep on hand to make vegan baking a breeze, you can’t go wrong with Ener-G Egg Replacer. It is a great binding agent, and one 16 oz box makes about 100 eggs!

The Neat Egg

The Neat Egg is another great store-bought egg replacer to be used as a binding agent in baked goods. Simply mix the powder with water and get baking!

Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer

Bob’s Red Mill is one of the easier brands to find and is as simple to use as the rest by just mixing it with water, then letting it sit for a moment to get the right consistency.


ORGRAN No Egg™ Egg Replacer lets you create quality cakes and baked goods with a similar texture to those with eggs. With the equivalent of 66 eggs per pack, ORGRAN No Egg is made with all-natural ingredients and is free from the 8 most common food allergies in the world, giving you added peace of mind for all your baking needs.

Simple Truth Plant-Based Egg Replacer 

An Eggcellent Alternative to Eggs! Made from two plant-based ingredients, chia seeds and garbanzo beans, this organic egg replacer is a vegan fix for your baking needs. Swap it in for eggs in any recipe where eggs are used as a binder.

Aquafaba (Chickpea brine)

If you’re new to vegan baking, you may be surprised that the brine in cans of chickpeas is something of a wonder ingredient! Aquafaba has similar properties to whipped egg whites. It’s ideal for making vegan meringues, macarons, buttercream, souffle, and much more. Although exact quantities may vary by recipe, here’s a general guideline for replacing eggs with aquafaba:

• 1 tablespoon aquafaba = 1 egg yolk
• 2 tablespoons aquafaba = 1 egg white
• 3 tablespoons aquafaba = 1 whole egg

Flax Eggs

If a recipe calls for a binding agent that doesn’t require rising, such as cookies, you can achieve the gooey consistency of eggs by making flax eggs. This failsafe technique has been a lifesaver for vegan bakers long before egg replacement products hit the supermarkets! Make a flax egg by mixing ground flaxseed with water, then allow it to sit for a few minutes. When the texture is thick and gloopy, it’s ready to go. One tablespoon of ground flaxseed and three tablespoons of water is equal to one egg.

Chia Eggs

Chia eggs are ideal for recipes that require the gel texture that eggs provide. You can make a chia egg by mixing water with chia seeds and allowing it to set until it has a gloopy consistency. Use this technique for recipes that don’t require a rising agent, such as cookies. One tablespoon of chia seeds plus three tablespoons of water equals about one egg.

Silken Tofu

For recipes that are dense, moist, or savory, silken tofu can work wonders as a vegan egg substitute. Try it in vegan cheesecakes, puddings, and mousses. Generally speaking, one egg equals about 1/4 cup of silken tofu.

Mashed Banana

Looking for an egg substitute for recipes like muffins or pancakes? Mashed banana is a great baking hack, as the sticky texture of mashed banana works as a binding agent. 1/2 mashed banana generally equals about one egg.

Vegan Mayonnaise

Unfortunately, eggs are also a main ingredient of most mayonnaise. But lucky for vegans, more companies are making a vegan version every day! Here is a list of brands to look out for. But always be sure to check the labels, as some of these companies also offer products that contain animal ingredients.
