How to Make a Chia Egg.

A chia egg replacer is a great option when you can't bake with eggs! Simple, natural, and it works well in muffins, cookies, or cupcakes.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is equal to one regular egg.

I do not recommend chia seed egg replacers in recipes that require 3 or more eggs.
