Why Substitute for this Simple Egg Replacement – Flax egg 

It works well when replacing one to two eggs but not as good replacing three or more eggs because it adds lots of fat which may affect your texture when baking cakes or certain types of muffins. However is it a great substitute in baking goods that requires 1 or 2 whole eggs. Make sure you are using a ground flax meal. 

Store ground flaxseed or flax meal in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
