Making Flax Eggs with Omega3NutraCleanse®

flax egg vegan
For those of us who are vegan, or maybe have high cholesterol, or perhaps just simply don’t have enough eggs to bake with, we have a surprise for you: you can make an “egg” with Omega3NutraCleanse®!

Eggs are binders, and when we use eggs in baking, we do it to bind the ingredients together so that our food turns out the way we want it to: delicious. 

There are typically two ways to make eggs with water. One involves chia seeds, and one involves ground flax seeds. Guess what Omega3NutraCleanse® is made of? That’s right—over 90% of the ingredients is ground flax!

Here’s how to make flax eggs:

Ingredients:

1 tbsp. O3NC (or ground flax seeds)
3 tbsp. Water
Method:

Combine binder of choice and water.
Stir together well, then set aside for 3-5 minutes.
Stir once more, then add to baking.
That’s it! So the next time you’re stuck for an egg or two while making banana bread, use Omega3NutraCleanse® instead. Here’s our recipe for Vegan Banana Walnut Pancakes, using Omega3NutraCleanse® in place of an egg, to create flax eggs:

Vegan Banana Walnut Pancakes: makes 4 large

Ingredients

1¼ cups unsweetened almond milk
1 large banana, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. NutraCleanse
3 tbsp. water
1 cup quinoa flour
1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
1 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. coconut oil
½ cup banana slices
¼ cup chopped walnuts
2 tbsp. maple syrup
Method

Whisk together non-dairy milk, mashed banana, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Combine Omega3NutraCleanse® and water in small bowl to make your flax eggs, and set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
Stir the Omega3NutraCleanse® mixture once more, then add to the wet mixture.
Incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, and mix until just combined.
Melt coconut oil in a non-stick pan (I use ceramic) over medium heat.
Add about a half cup of the batter into the pan.
Flip once bubbles have formed and popped (approximately 2–3 minutes per side).
Top with fresh banana, walnuts, and syrup.
