Have you ever tried baking with egg substitutes? Here are some tips our test kitchen uses for baking our Taro Cakes pancake mix and Lava Cookies mix using natural egg substitutes.
Many people are allergic to soy and eggs and thankfully, there are many options!

I like to use chia and pureed fruits in my recipes for the added fiber and omega-3 that I can “sneak” in.
