Vegan Egg Replacer Powder


Vegan Egg Replacer Powder

Omitting the almighty egg in recipes can lead to serious baking disasters. It's rumored that the Romans put eggs in their concrete to improve its strength. Vegan Egg Replacer Powder is a very effective egg substitute that's great for replacing eggs in most vegan baking recipes where heat is involved. It's an important piece of weaponry in your vegan baking arsenal. When I ran my baking company, Enchanted Oven Baking Co, I used this egg substitute recipe extensively with my cookies to make them soft, dense and chewy.

This binding powder consists of a blend of starch, vegetable gum and a leavener. Arrowroot is used as the starch because it performs well and is one of the most tasteless starches. Baking powder is used to mimic the slight leavening properties that an egg would contribute. Guar or Xanthan gum improves emulsification of fats and oils much like an egg would. Use Vegan Egg Replacer Powder as a more affordable direct replacement for Ener-G Egg Replacer.

This recipe is for a large batch of Vegan Egg Replacer Powder that can be used for many recipes.
