Egg Substitutions In Baking Recipes

Many baking recipes can be utilized on Repairvite, as long as you substitute the eggs.   Here are some options, keeping in mind that you may not get products to rise very much without the use of eggs.

  • Use a “flax egg” for baking!  To make one egg, use 1 T flax meal (ground flaxseed) + 3 T warm water.   Whisk together and place it in the fridge for a minute or so. It will become gummy like an egg and can be used for baking.
  • Using a combo of baking powder, water and coconut oil:  1 tsp baking powder + 1 ½ Tbsp water + 1 ½ Tbsp coconut oil per egg.
  • Arrowroot powder:  2 Tbsp of arrowroot powder can substitute for 1 egg.
  • Applesauce:   3 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce (or other fruit puree) + 1 tsp baking powder per egg.  This works best for recipes that call for 1-2 eggs.
  • Ener-G, an egg replacement that is sold in a powdered form in stores like Earth Fare and Healthy Home Market.  Simply use the conversion chart on the box and scoop the powder into your recipe.  NOTE:  This product is not suitable for Repairvite because of the potato starch and tapioca starch.

http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/index.cfm/2010/9/29/coconut-flour-tortillas

1 tablespoon coconut flour                                                          2 T water or coconut milk

1/16 teaspoon baking powder                                                   coconut oil

2 egg whites (or, 3 tablespoons egg whites)

  1. Mix the coconut flour and baking powder with the water (or milk) and egg whites. Whisk or blend until all lumps disappear (I usually mix, then wait a couple of minutes and mix again).
  2. Pour all the batter on a heated pan greased with coconut oil or butter (grease well). Pour batter in center of pan. Tilt the pan around to spread the batter into a large circle, almost covering the entire bottom of the pan.
  3. Be very careful with this part: wait until the edges are brown on the side of the tortilla, or carefully circle spatula around the bottom of tortilla until safe to flip. Once safe, flip the tortilla and cook for about 30 seconds on the other side.
  4. Fill with cream, berries, enchilada filling – anything you like!
  5. These are thin and delicate. Use them for low-carb enchiladas, sandwich wraps, or anything you can think of!
