There are many different ways to substitute for eggs when baking. I will say though, that many Paleo recipes cannot use egg replacements and have good results. The reason being, the recipes are totally grain free and use lots of protein, which is great! But the consistency of the finished product is dependent on the eggs. Replacement eggs will not even come close to what the recipe looks or tastes like. In my many failed attempts to master paleo recipes without egg, I found that the recipe would either crumble, or never fully cook and turn to mush. However, there is a specific kind of Paleo diet called the "Auto-Immune Paleo Diet" that does not use eggs, or any foods that contain allergens for that matter! When I discovered this I literally sang the hallelujah chorus! Because, there is nothing better than finding a large cook-book that not one recipe has to be omitted or drastically changed in order for it to meet your dietary restrictions! But, for those of you who don't have an Auto-Immune Paleo cookbook, or those who just want to broaden their selection of foods to eat, there are great options to replace eggs when using a non-allergy friendly recipe!
