The Neat Egg egg substitute is a great solution. It’s a plant-based egg replacement that works in recipes where egg is needed as a binder. Chia seeds and garbanzo beans (aka, chickpeas) are the ingredients in this product, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for a vegan, kosher and/or non-GMO egg substitute. Simply combine a tablespoon of the mixture with 2 tablespoons of water and mix well. Each tablespoon serving provides 25 calories, 4 grams of carb, 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. Plus, it’s fat-, cholesterol-, sodium- and gluten-free. One package of The Neat Egg provides the equivalent of 18 eggs.
