Tips and Tricks for Making A Flax Egg
- Easily Double (or Triple): The standard ratio for a flax egg is 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if your recipe calls for more eggs.
- Soak and Rest: After combining the flaxseeds and water in a bowl, allow the mixture to rest for about 15 minutes. This resting period allows the flaxseeds to absorb the water and form a similar consistency to eggs.
- Storage: If you have any leftover flax egg mixture, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, it's recommended to use it fresh for best results.
