How to Swap Egg in Plant-Based Baking and Cooking



Eggs are some of the easiest animal products to swap out! Try these egg replacements to add more plant-based meals and desserts into your dishes!

For baking:

1 egg = ½ avocado  

1 egg = ½ ripe banana  

1 egg = 3tbs aquafaba (chickpea water)  

1 egg = 3tbs peanut butter  

1 egg = 1tsp baking powder + 1 tbs vinegar  

1 egg = ¼ cup apple puree 

1 egg = 1tbs ground flaxseed + 3tbs water

Cooking swaps: 

  • Make a breakfast scramble with crumbled tofu or tempeh. 
  • Swap out hard-boiled eggs in salads with white beans. 
  • Make an omelet with chickpea flour and a bit of turmeric for color 

Making small changes to what you eat can have a big impact for your health, the planet, and for animals.
