Having a single allergy is a challenge, having multiple allergies is almost impossible!! So many gluten free-recipes rely on eggs to make them seem more like food and less like shingles or sheetrock. I think I broke out in more hives trying to avoid eggs than from the eggs themselves!!
When I first heard I couldn’t have eggs, I figured no big deal, I’ll just find another breakfast food. Ha! I was so dumb! I had no clue that eggs were in everything…Call it allergen blindness…or just being unaware of what I was eating. I didn’t know there was another way to eat.

My Journey to an Egg-Free Life Went Like This…
Phase One of Life Without Eggs
I discovered the egg-replacers at the grocery store. Since I’m allergic to soy, there were about 3 options for me. When my favorite egg replacer went all new and improved, and changed to being soy based, I decided I was done buying egg replacer, and I would just live without eggs…(I actually was that foolish!)
Phase Two of Life Without Eggs
I just didn’t eat them and avoided everything made with eggs. This phase lasted 23 hours. I’m quite proud of my willpower and determination. That’s the longest I’ve ever gone without baked goods in my life!! Dessert should be my middle name! I hit phase three out of desperation.
Phase Three of Life Without Eggs
Since I tell everyone I cook with Unicorn Farts as my secret ingredient…why not make an egg replacer? If I could replace flour in cookie recipes, then the next thing I would work on was eggs! It took almost a year to develop the egg replacer recipe. Part of why this website is called Break a Recipe is because of this Egg Replacer! I broke this recipe so many ways before I could use it reliably in place of eggs. Now it’s what I use all the time!

Let’s See It Happen!
In my carrot cake recipe, I used this egg replacer and got rave reviews from family in friends. It’s easy to use. Remember to add the chickpea and coconut milk with the wet ingredients and save the xanthan gum, cream of tartar, and baking soda for adding with the dry ingredients. Then you’re good to go!
Let’s Take A Closer Look At Our Ingredients
Chickpea Flour–Oh marvelous chickpea flour, it has so many uses. In this recipe it adds protein it takes the place of egg. Most doctors encourage their patients to consume more legumes if it is safe to do so. Baking with chickpea flour is a great way to do this!
Coconut milk –I like using the coconut milk in the carton when a recipe calls for “milk”. My favorite brand is So Delicious. Coconut is my duct tape, I can make almost anything with it. Any time a recipe calls for “milk” this is what I use. When a recipe calls for whole milk, I’ll use the full fat coconut milk in the can, and when a recipe calls for cream, I’ll go with canned coconut cream.
Why You Can’t Skip The Eggs…
Eggs emulsify–that means they hold things together and stop them from separating. Think of oil and water in a cake recipe. Without eggs, it’s more like a thick salad dressing you have to shake over and over again. It will separate before it’s baked. With the eggs, it stays mixed and bakes up as magical, sweet, spongy goodness…
Eggs are a leavening agent–those slimy disgusting things actually give food lift. It has to do with the protein structure, similar to the way gluten traps the gas bubbles in a baked good, eggs do that too!
