Vegan Egg Replacer

phpgJzXrLHi everyone, it's Jane posting today. I'm so excited. I finally found the Ener-G Egg Replacer that most people seem to recommend as the "best" option for replacing eggs in vegan baking.

I've looked high and low to find this product. First I tried all my local grocery stores. Of course, they carry a very limited selection of vegan products, and this isn't one of them. Then I went to my two local Whole Foods stores. I couldn't find it in the baking section there, and I spent quite a while wandering up and down that aisle. I asked for help and was told it would be found in the baking section, but the clerk who was assisting me couldn't find it either, so I gave up. After that I went to my local health food store; they carry it either, but suggested a ground flax seed and water concoction, which a number of you have also suggested, so I bought the flax seed. But today, back at Whole Foods, I happened upon a very helpful staff-person who informed me that the Ener-G Egg Replacer is not in the baking section after all, but stored in the "Gluten Free" area of the store. Who knew?

And now that I have it, I 'll be off and baking something soon. Lane will be very excited.

  1. Funny, I had the same experience at one of my local Whole Foods when looking for the same product (the not being able to find, not the helpful staff person). I ended up finding it at a smaller place (Sprouts, not sure if you have them there).

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog, and it’s been an inspiration to me in my own conversion to veganism! :D

  2. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for the kind words. We’re very happy to be an inspiration to you!
    BTW, we were poking around on your blog. Jane is a knitter as well. She’s working on my Christmas present — socks! (Do you think wool is ok for vegans to knit with? We haven’t spent any time thinking about how it’s harvested…)
