    I also have a granddaughter that is allergic to eggs - along with just about everything else except fruit/vegetables and rice flour. I have used ener G egg replacer with good results. Good luck with this. My GD lives in Texas so we only have to scramble for the special foods 1-2x a year.

    I checked with my friend and she also uses the Ener G Egg Replacer product. Hope you have success with your baking this season.

    Why don't you see if you can find a contact number or email address on the website and ask the manufacturer? Good luck, take care.

    My sister has used this product and says it's ok. She prefers the flax mix that was posted earlier. Have not tried it myself though.

    I think I'm going to try this. If I don't like the results, I can use the flax seed in granola. If I use the "Efficient Method", can I store the mixture in the refrigerator for awhile? Do you know how long it would keep?

    Thanks everyone for your replies!

    Flax Gel Egg Replacement
    You'll need whole (not ground!) flax seeds, and some cheesecloth (a strainer won't work).
    Quick Method:
    Use 1 part seeds to 4 parts water. Simmer for 5-7 min. Proceed as described
    under "Straining". For 1 egg, use 4 tsp. seeds to 1/3 cup water.
    Efficient Method:
    Use 1 part seeds to 12 parts water, e.g. 4 tsp. seeds per cup of water.
    Soak from 1 hour to overnight, whatever is convenient for you.
    Simmer for 20 min, and be sure to let gel cool before straining.
    Straining
    Allowing the gel to cool with the seeds in it makes it thicker. When thick and cool, pour into a bowl lined with cheesecloth. Gently squeeze out the gel, until the cloth contains only seeds. Compost the seeds, and use the gel.
    To replace 1 egg, use a scant 1/4 cup gel

    You can store in the fridge and I have no idea how long. I have kept it for as much as a week but usually make it up in small enough batches that I use it fairly quickly. Ann

    Rather than using an egg substitute, why not just look for recipes for eggless cookies? I have several that I always made for Christmas for my grandson when he was allergic to eggs. Thankfully, he outgrew it, but I would always feel so bad when his 4 brothers and sisters enjoyed Christmas cookie treats and he would get a cracker! The recipes I used are very good, everyone enjoys them and I felt great giving the little guy a special treat.

    Let me know if you would like to have them. I'll be glad to post them.
