Neat Egg for an Egg

The last substitution for the egg in my pancakes that I tested is called Neat Egg. Neat Egg is an all-natural, vegan and gluten free egg replacer. You mix 1 tablespoon of the neat egg, which is a brown powder, with 2 tablespoons of water and boom! you have your new “egg”. It makes a thick paste and its main function is to replace the egg as a binder (Neat – The Neat Egg Substitute).

Some key points about the Neat Egg (Neat – The Neat Egg Substitute):

  • Kosher / Vegan
  • Non-GMO project verified
  • All-natural, 100% vegan egg replacement
  • Simple ingredients that are soy free and gluten free
  • Free of cholesterol

The Neat Egg pancakes were probably my least favorite of the bunch because they were much thicker and denser than what I like however, the taste remained the same pretty much. The coloring was slightly paler and they were somewhat breadlike. As with the chia seeds, the Neat Egg yielded less pancakes than the regular pancake recipe. Overall, a great option for if you are adapting a pancake recipe to be vegan or if you are out of eggs!
