Did You Know a Good Egg Substitute?

Did you know a good egg substitute?

I've used this egg substitute a number of times, all with good results. Most folks know about using oil or applesauce as an egg substitute, but this one seems to add something just a little different. Maybe it makes the baked good heartier or fuller somehow. My daughter even used it in some cookies for a friend and those cookies got rave reviews!*

2T ground flax seed + 3T water=1 egg
whisk together til a little frothy

*we did have one egg so she used it plus the sub for one egg

I'll have to try that. I just always use the generic brand Egg beaters. It sounds like your recipe is a lot more healthy. I likey!
