Gluten Free Vegan Egg Replacement / Substitute (Like Ener-G egg)

For those wanting to bake without eggs we usually turn to store bought egg replacements like Bob’s Red Mill brand or Ener-G brand. While they are both amazing in their own right, they’re expensive, and what happens if you don’t realize you’re out of it? Well, I’m here to tell you that you can make it at home for a fraction of the price, with 4 basic ingredients.


10 tablespoons potato starch
6 tablespoons tapioca starch
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking soda


Mix well and store in a container til use. Will last very long time and is shelf stable.
This makes about 12 egg equivalent. Original recipe HERE.

How to use in recipe:
If a recipe calls for just the powder, do not add addition water. If recipe calls for a mixed egg always mix in a separate container and use this formula (this varies from original recipe):
one whole egg: 1 1/2 teaspoons powder to 2 tablespoons water
egg white: same as whole egg
egg yolk: 1 1/2 teaspoons powder to 1 tablespoon water.

This replacement is not suitable for things like scrambles eggs and the like, this is for baking.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: If you are making this and cooking for someone with gluten allergies or celiacs disease. Make sure to purchase ingredients that are certified gluten free, and clean your utensils very well. Better safe than sorry.

Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix

Lately I’ve been dabbling in gluten free cooking, however if you’ve ever looked at all purpose gluten free flour mix, you’ll know it costs a small fortune. While this still isn’t super cheap, its much cheaper than premixed flour.


2 cups sorghum flour
1 cup buckwheat flour
2 cups potato starch
2 teaspoons guar gum


Mix well and store in airtight container. You can use this instead of wheat flour in most recipes. Works especially well for pancakes and cupcakes!

Prep time: less than 5 minutes ,  Makes about 5 cups
allergies: Guar gum
Is vegan/vegetarian and gluten free.
