Maybe you don't have eggs? Or you are allergic to them. Or, maybe you simply don't like eggs? Regardless of what the reason may be, there are several substitutes you can use for baking in the place of eggs. We have listed down 5 of them for you.

Mashed Bananas

Mashed bananas has a sweet flavour and a moist texture that blends well when baking. To substitute one egg, use 1/4 cup of banana puree. However, remember that banana has a strong flavour so unless you want your baked good to taste like banana, combine with another flavour which will over come it. 

Chickpea Water

This is a magicial subsititue  for eggs! Known as aquafaba, chickpea water is quite easy to make. Either use the liquid found in canned chickpeas, or simply soak ones in water. To replace one egg, three tablespoons of chickpea water is required. And do not worry, your baked good will not taste like chickpeas!

Flax Seeds

Another wonderful egg substitute! Flax seed is great for dense baked goods. For one egg, mix 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons of water.

Chia seeds

This is similar to flax seeds. Both provides a chewy texture which is ideal for a lot baked goods (a brownie maybe? or a cookie!) For one egg, mix 1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds with three tablespoons of water.

Baking Soda & Vinegar

This combo works well as a leavening for baked goods such as quick breads or cakes. For one egg, combine on tablespoon of white or apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of baking soda.
