Step By Step Instructions
- Tip # 1: In my experience I have only been able to use 4 gelatin eggs max in a baking recipe or it gets too clumpy.
- Tip # 2: Egg free baking is different from regular baking. Oftentimes the egg replacement is paired with another wet or binding ingredient like tapioca and/or applesauce.
- Tip # 3: If you are planning to use this alternative for an event that you are hosting, I recommend trying out the recipes in advance to see how the gelatin effects the recipe so you can adjust the recipe as needed ahead of time.
I always use Great Lakes! See the picture above.
Gelatin is made from ground up animal tissues – the bones, tendons, and ligaments. Gelatin is one of those ingredients that is highly recommended on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol.
The short answer is no. Yes, this egg replacement does work like an egg in recipes but it does not always work out to be 1:1.
- This recipe can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 days in an air tight container.
