Flaxseed egg replacement
This vegan banana muffin is made with a flaxseed egg replacement. Flaxseed, when mixed with water, will get a gel-like consistency and will bind the muffin ingredients.
Grind flaxseed into a flour using a coffee grinder 1 tbsp of flaxseed flour plus 2 to 2½ tbsp of water replaces one 1 egg.
This recipe uses the magic egg replacement ingredient called aquafaba. I hear you thinking aqua what? What is it and where do I get it?
Well, chances are you already have a lot of aquafaba in your cupboard. Aquafaba comes in cans of beans like chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, red beans, cannellini beans.
Just drain the can and preserve the liquid. The next likely question is, will my sweet muffin taste like beans when I use aquafaba? The simple answer is no, it will not.
The liquid has a distinct taste but as the ingredients combine and will be baked the muffins will fluff up due to the aquafaba but will not take on the taste.
I have been so amazed by the results of baking with aquafaba and I do not miss eggs in my muffin recipes.
With a hand mixer, you can turn it into whipped egg white without egg, use it in a meringue or you can use it for eggless mayonnaise. About 3 tbsp of aquafaba equals 1 egg.
