Chia Seed – Egg Replacement for Vegan Baking

Chia seed is an excellent, reliable, replacement for eggs in vegan baking. A simple to use, economical choice for all your baking.



1 Tbs Chia Seed

3 Tbs Water


Finely grind the chia seeds.

Place in a small bowl and add 3 Tbs water.

Stir to mix completely

Let sit for at least 15 minutes (great time to do other prep for your recipe!) and up to 30 minutes

Once the mixture has “thickened” simply add to your recipe as a replacement for each egg and blend well


Grinding is important. If you use whole chia seeds the mixture is more like tapioca pudding (and, actually, works well if you want to make that exact thing) and less like an egg.

A dedicated grinder for your chia seeds is very helpful. We simply use a small counter-top coffee grinder.

Make your chia seed egg(s) at the time of use, rather than making ahead and storing in the fridge. Fresh is the way to go
