Many want to avoid eggs for myriad reasons - health, culture/religion, likings etc. Although adding eggs makes the end product so much better, it does not mean that we cannot do without it. There might be some compromise in taste and texture but for most of the cases the end result is still pretty much decent sans eggs too. Here is a list which comes handy to me while I am making such a recipe. Image source

Most of these substitutions will work interchangeably for all other baked Goods. I have compiled this list using various resources on net. Keep in mind that using substitutions may affect texture and taste of your baked goods. Please use this list as a guideline and use your discretion to make a substitution in the recipe (depending on what purpose the egg serves in the recipe - as a binder, for adding moistness, for texture etc)

Replacement In

With Ingredients like

How to Replace

Brownies Silken Tofu/ Tofu ( 1/4 cup blended silken tofu = 1 egg ) Process in a blender until completely smooth and creamy, leaving no graininess or chunks. You will want to attach other wet ingredients to this mixture to return with it to blend properly.
Applesauce (1/3 cup applesauce = 1 egg or ¼ cup Applesauce + 1 tsp Baking Powder ) If chocolate in the brownies overpowers the flavor of applesauce so it can be safely used, and is in fact, one of the best egg substitute in brownie mix.
Soy Yogurt/Plain Yogurt ( ¼ cup Yogurt= 1 EGG ) If you are a vegan, you may opt for soy yogurt. Otherwise plain yogurt will do the trick. Just beat it well and add it to the brownie mix.
Flax seeds (1 tbsp ground Flax seeds +3 tbsp Water =1 egg Grind the flax seeds in a coffee grinder, and mix with water. Allow it to rest till it becomes gelatinous, then use.
Bananas (½ pureed Banana, abt 1/4 cup = 1 egg) Just mash it smooth, and use it but the addition of banana will alter the flavor of the brownies
Commercial Egg Substitute Use as per instructions on pack. Many people who have used this find it to leave behind a peculiar taste. However, there have been exceptions to this case.
Breads Bananas (½ pureed Banana, abt 1/4 cup = 1 egg) Recipes: Banana Blueberry Bread
Soy yogurt (1/4 cup soy yogurt = 1egg) Soy yogurt works deeply like whiz tofu as an egg replacer.Helps to make it moist
Water (one egg with 1/4 cup water. Recipe:Vegan Banana Nut Bread

Recipes: Blueberry Boy Bait; Strawberry Yogurt Cake
Water (one egg with 1/4 cup water.)
Vegetable Oil (1/4 cup = 1 egg) Recipes: Banana Cupcake
Buttermilk Buttermilk is one of the preferred egg substitute used for eggless cake recipes. What you need to do is add half a cup of buttermilk (instead of one egg) and follow the same directions as you did for baking regular cakes. The only thing is to add less amount of water for making the dough. With buttermilk, the resultant cake will be very soft and tasty.
Pureed Fruits (3 tablespoons of pureed fruit = one egg ) In cases when you don't like using eggs and buttermilk in cakes then a good egg substitute for baking cakes is, adding pureed fruits. Use 3 tablespoons of pureed banana (for one egg) and follow the same tips for baking cake. Even without eggs, you will surely serve a soft and delicious cake with pureed fruits.
Gelatin (Non Vegetarian) (1 tablespoon gelatin + 3 tablespoons lukewarm water = 1 egg) Another popularly used egg substitute in baking is unsweetened and unflavored gelatin. Most vegetarians prefer adding Agar Agar instead of Gelatin as a substitute in cake, instead of the other options. For using gelatin in baking cake, mix together one tablespoon gelatin with three tablespoons lukewarm water. Add this mixture for making the cake dough.
Flaxseed (1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil+ 3 tablespoons water = 1 egg) Stir the flaxseed mixture well and allow it to thicken for a few minutes. Strain the seeds by using a muslin cloth and use the filtrate for baking cake.
Vinegar and Baking Powder Use this egg substitute in cake, only when you require more than one egg for baking. Mix one tablespoon each of white vinegar and water in a glass. To this, add one teaspoon of baking powder and stir well until the mixture blends well. Now, use this egg substitute for your cake recipe.
Potato Starch (2 heaped tbsp potato starch = 1 egg)
Arrowroot Powder (2 heaped tbsp arrowroot powder  = 1 egg)
Soy flour (1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour + 2 tbsp water = 1egg)
Soda Pop A regular-sized (12 oz.) can of soda pop can be used as a substitution for 3 eggs in your baking recipes. Additionally, one regular-sized (12 oz.) can of soda pop can be substituted for the oil/egg combo required by most boxed cake mixes.

Cookies (eggs mostly act as binding agents in cookies and adding moisture) Vegetable Oil (1/4 cup = 1 egg)
Cornstarch (1 tablespoon of Cornstarch + 2 Tablespoons of Water = 1 egg)
Soy flour (1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg)
Ener-G Egg Replacer (follow package instructions) It seems to work best surrounded by cookies, or things that are supposed to be a little crispy.Otherwise, there have been complaints that it tends to add certain aftertaste noticeable more in other bakes like a chalky taste.
Check out all Eggless Cookies Recipes
Muffins (eggs mostly act as binding agents in Muffins and adding moisture ) Applesauce (1/3 cup applesauce = 1 egg or ¼ cup Applesauce + 1 tsp Baking Powder )
Pumpkin (1/3 cup of cooked pumpkin = 1 egg) This works almost for all baked goods but especially for muffins leaving a subtle Pumpkin flavor in the muffins (depending upon the eggs substituted)
Soy yogurt/Yogurt (1/4 cup soy yogurt = 1 egg) Soy yogurt works deeply like whiz tofu as an egg replacer. It makes things moist
Recipes: Cranberry Walnut Muffins
Water (one egg with 1/4 cup water.
Vegetable Oil (1/4 cup = 1 egg)
Soy flour (1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg)

Check out all Eggless Muffins Recipes
Pancakes Flax seeds (1 tbsp ground Flax seeds + 3 tbsp Water = 1 egg Adding ground flax seeds to any recipe add Omega-3's to the recipe! You can buy ground flax seeds in the health section of most grocery stores.
Soy flour (1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg)
Banana (½ pureed Banana, abt 1/4 cup = 1 egg)
Savory Dishes(as binders/ coating) Mashed Potatoes When a recipe in any savory dish like Vegetable Loaves or Burgers calls for eggs as a binding agent, then any of these will work as an substitute for eggs. When used for Frying (as an coating of eggs and flour), you can use a mix of all purpose flour + water to form into a paste and apply that as coating instead of beaten eggs.
Bread Crumbs
Cooked Oatmeal
Cooked Rice
Tomato Paste
Chocolate pies, Quiches, pudding Tofu Tofu is great for egg substitutions in recipes that call for a lot of egg. To substitute for only one egg in a recipe, whip or blend 1/4 cup soft tofu and add to your cooking.
Cornstarch This especially works great for puddings. 1 egg = 2 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water
Recipes: Chocolate Tapioca Pudding
Salads/ Sandwiches/Omelet Tofu Diced or mashed tofu can replace chopped hard-boiled eggs in some salad and sandwich recipes. Scrambled tofu makes a delicious alternative to scrambled eggs.

Many years ago my mum made a Danish omelette (æggekage) which looking at a recipe today for 5 persons, uses 20 eggs. Mum always used fresh breadcrumbs (I helped to crumble the bread) and I have often wondered why. I cannot remember how many eggs she used. The only reason I can think she used the bredcrumbs is the cost of eggs and coming out of the 1940's depression (in NZ) she may have carried this substitution with her through time. How likely is this, or is there another reason for the substitution. I have not found ONE recipe using breadcrumbs in the recipe, hence my thought that its a substitution she made. Anyone with bright ideas please? Thanks :)

I disagree that "adding eggs makes the end product so much better". I hope no one is put off trying egg free baking because of it!! I have been baking for years without eggs and my backing since turning my back on eggs has been better than it ever was with eggs. There may be a few things that you can't do so easily....meringue....but pretty much all everyday baking can be done just as well if not better so don't be afraid of baking without eggs! It might take some trial and error but with the right recipes you won't miss eggs at all! :D

Greetings D&K, Was looking for more egg substitute ideas, and your chart is very well laid out. Golden flaxseed here in Bolivia is very expensive, or not available. When I was in America, I baked many products with golden flaxseed. So will try your soy FLOUR/water blended tip. I use soy FLOUR as a functional ingredient. I bake by percentage s, and grams. Formulas. More creative and consistent! Please check out bbga.org. Also sfbi.com. has great baking classes.Even gluten-free, which includes some vegan. One other comment was about a pecan pie. One of my vegan books, (back in the states), used a combination of agar and arrowroot. The sweetener is maple syrup and barely malt syrup. Bake a blind crust, toast the pecans. Simmer the syrups,with the agar till completely dissolved, then add the arrowroot slurry. Simmer till clear, and pour over the filled crust. Chill. Please forgive me for not remembering the ratio of agar / arrowroot. Will try to see if I can get it. But the combination is "custardy". Good mouth-feel. Thank you for your time and for reading this comment.

Jeanette, I think each item replaces one egg. So it would be 3T of vinegar etc. I might use flax seed or chia seed instead of the one you looked at.

I thought the response to Rohit, the professional baker, was a bit snide. Eggs are a given in baking. With only 1.5% of children allergic to eggs and 70% of those individuals outgrowing that allergy by age 16. And in the US, only .5% - 3% are vegan. So, really, most professional bakers use eggs. And therefore wouldn't have a clue what to substitute for them. But, Rohit, use the suggestions in the list. And you'll unfortunately have to learn by trial and error, especially if you're also having to substitute for other ingredients (like butter and/or wheat flour). Good luck!

i have a cheddar and dried basil waffle recipe from Jennies all purpose mix , that calls for 2 eggs, but i do not want to use eggs and flex meal option, please give me some other substitute for this. thanks.

By Cindy on Aug 29, 2014

For a cobbler like any dessert you need to know if the egg substitute is replacing moisture or adherence. If moisture then things like applesauce work. If adherence then things like cornstarch or rice flour with a bit of vinegar will work.With cobbler you could probably try the applesauce substitute but if it is too moist then do part applesauce part cornstarch. Check out veganbaking.net for great tips giving the science behind the substitution. He also has some already veganized recipes many of which I have tried with great success.

By Kelly on Aug 28, 2014

What about an egg substitute for a cobbler. Would that be similar to a substitution for a cake or bread?

By Rob on Aug 21, 2014

I'm always amazed when you can use healthier ingredients for the same results but we're so used to things like oil and egg that we don't even bother trying or remember to do so. I came across this list when I ran our of eggs thinking there's no way I can still make the dessert and BAM!, you made it possible and added another mental sticky note in my head to consider egg substitutes when baking. Thank you!

So far I cannot see a difference in soda pop used in the box cake so we tend to use diet. My husband swears that with a white cake mix you taste root beer if it is used but I would not go that far. Dark sodas do not cause a color change either from what I can tell. Literally it is just the amount used-8oz for a fluffy cake and 10-12 oz if you want a denser, sticky but ultra sweet cake. The amount of calories saved by using diet soda is about 100 calories per slice of cake!

By Cindy on Jun 12, 2014

It is my experience that you cannot detect the taste of the applesauce but that you can of the banana. The only thing that I have found that overpowers the banana flavor is peanut butter. Applesauce is also easier to always have on hand. One of the single serving containers is ALMOST ½ cup so works to substitute for 2 eggs. I always have a big jug of applesauce in the fridge as I use it often. I am also now using rice flour when I need a more dry egg substitute. It does not have an aftertaste like I can detect with cornstarch in baked goods.

By Robert on Jun 11, 2014

I have a question about substituting applesauce or bananas for eggs in my cake recipes. I'm working on offering vegan versions of my cupcakes to customers and was curious to know if I go with the bananas or the applesauce, will it make my cupcakes taste like bananas or apples?

DK, This is a FANTASTIC list! I've never seen one so complete. I have it bookmarked and reference it all of the time. I hope you'll consider adding The Vegg, which is a vegan yolk replacer and The Vegg Baking Mix, a vegan whole egg replacer for baking to it. I've been amazed by how well they work and their wide variety of uses. They even have an eggy taste. (Disclaimer; I am not associated with the company or it's employees in any way. I just like the products!) Cindy, white chia seeds are readily available online and in the health food sections of some stores (look for salba). I have not found chia seeds of any variety to be more expensive than flax seeds but that may depend upon what part of the country you live in. Where I live (West Coast), they are very popular. I personally prefer to use them over flax because of their gelling ability and because they don't have a strong taste, which can be distracting depending upon the other flavors in the recipe.

I do see chia seeds in recipes in lieu of flax seed as the egg substitute. I think it is rarer, however, since chia seeds are more expensive and sometimes harder to find than flax seed. Also, they would be visible in a finished product unless you used white chia seeds, which I have never seen. I think the measurements for either flax or chia are the same.

By Bill on Mar 14, 2014

If you're sensitive to flax I believe that chia seeds can be use in the same way. If anyone know different...?

By Brownie Goodness | bzapple on Mar 8, 2014

[...] * If you are looking for a vegan option, you can try the following as a substitute to the eggs: 1) Flaxseed Egg: 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds +3 tablespoons water =1 egg. Just mix them together and leave for a few minutes until they become a little gelatinous. 2) Banana: 1/4 cup of mashed banana = 1 egg. Go ahead and mash that banana! 3) Apple Sauce:  1/3 cup applesauce = 1 egg. Or try ¼ cup applesauce + 1 tsp baking powder to help add the rise that you’d naturally get from the inclusion of egg.

By eliminating eggs you also eliminate 184 mg of cholesterol. The Cleveland Clinic recommends people not consume more than 200 mg per day. If you like to know the chemistry behind eggless baking visit veganbaking.net. I have found great tips there like for cakes and brownies to rise without an egg the batter has to be thick, more like a dough than a batter. Also the 12 oz soda and box cake mix. While that makes a super sweet cake that I love, it is also very sticky and does not rise. If you want fluffy over sweet, use 8 oz of soda and make the batter like a biscuit dough and it will rise to be fluffy but without the 34 mg of cholesterol per slice of a cake with eggs.

I tried the apple sauce and although everyone loved it it was not my favorite. I was tasting the apple sauce due to my great sense of taste for cake as I am always baking. I recently substitue vanilla/regular almond milk and wonderful. Cake was perfect. However I will try the butter milk although I know I need to add venegar. I made corn bread with butter milk and it was find so I may try the cake. Thanks and have you ever try just milk as a substitute?

Bridget, many other replacers use 1/4 cup per egg. I would try that or maybe half of that (2 tablespoons) since avocado is so dense and nearly 100% fat. I am not sure what avocado does once cooked. Are the fats still okay for the body or are they denatured in some harmful way? I hope you try it and report back with what recipe you used, and what texture and flavor results you had.

By Ali on Nov 9, 2013

Vanessa, you can use egg replacers regardless which part of the egg your recipe calls for. Here's another recipe that has no eggs at all - a sort of chocolate cake alternative. I've made it. It's good and people ask for the recipe. It's not as cakey as a flour cake. I usually add an extract to give it more flavor. Or a scoop of Fruits of the Earth powder for a subtle berry note. http://sproutpeople.org/recipes/desserts/torte.html

By Ali on Nov 7, 2013

Nidia, Sorry, I don't know how to reply to your post directly. I have success by using various egg replacers within the same recipe. I don't rely on just one. Gelatin is a good one (you can use knox gelatin but Great Lakes gelatin is much healthier) - mix with COLD water first. Also, arrowroot or tapioca are useful replacers. Most people with the list of allergies your daughter has do better with a grain-free diet while they're healing the gut. With that in mind, consider making treats with either coconut flour (cheaper) or almond flour (pricier). Coconut flour treats and good health info are on the empoweredsustenance.com site, and almond flour recipes are on elanaspantry.com site. They both address all the allergies except egg. These recipes usually call for many eggs per, and I use ground chia, gelatin, applesauce, arrowroot, etc. in each recipe and they work pretty well. They all have different properties, and that's why I do a mixture, to more emulate real eggs. Also, let yourself off the hook. This type of baking is new to you. Do your best, but understand it takes time to get it right. It's okay if your results are not perfect. It's better that your daughter doesn't have the stomach pain and other effects of eating foods she can't handle. You might also check into the GAPS diet, which heals the gut and is soothing. Best of luck!

I cannot believe you recommend using that egg re-placer by ener-g. Its not organic, and it contains MODIFIED cellulose. SO BAD FOR YOU! The point of substituting eggs is for your health, and modified fake crap is a lot worse for you than eggs.

You can also use pureed pumpkin as a replacement for both the eggs and the oil in brownies (if using a boxed mix, just add a can of pumpkin puree and bake as directed). You can't taste the pumpkin any more than you can taste applesauce as a substitute, and the texture is much denser (more like a real brownie!)

I have used applesauce in brownies & cookies successfully. partly due to having lots of it on hand and partly to cut the fats/oils in a recipe. If you do use applesauce and want to limit the sugar, use the "natural" versions of the brand. it has no extra sugar like the original.

Also, works well for camping :)

Make sure you cut the sugar if you use something like applesauce. I didn't think about that when I made brownies using applesauce instead of eggs. They came out pretty good - they were super-fluffy and tended to fall apart when they were warm, but once they cooled they stuck together better. They were a bit too sweet, so next time I'll cut the sugar a bit.
