How to use the commercial egg replacer?

Egg Replacer (Energ)Powdered Egg Replacers are a mix of potato and tapioca starch (no corn) and some leavening agents. Some commercially available egg replacer powders are from Ener-G Foods, Bob’s Red Mill, Organ, and other brands. This replacement for eggs is gluten-free too.

Whip together in a food processor or blender 1 and a half teaspoons powder and 2 tablespoons water. Sometimes 2-3 times as much powder in the same amount of water gives better results. I personally prefer Ener G Foods Egg Replacer to the other brands.

Texture/taste-wise, it is flavorless, won’t affect the taste of the baked goods. Best suitable for all baked goods, especially Cookies.
