Eggs are totally non-vegan unless you have plants that lay eggs which is, I believe, out of this world.

You may or may not be aware of the torture chicken go through their short lifestyle and we may not go into these detail in this article. But, because we never assume that everyone knows, here’s an informative article “Come On! What’s the Problem with Eating Eggs?“.

Apart from being taken plain, eggs are found in many baked foods like cakes, cookies, muffins, biscuits, pies, rolls and the all time people’s favorite doughnuts.

As eggs are rich in protein, Vitamin B 2, and Vitamin B12, there are vegan substitutes that are equally rich in these nutrients. Most cereals, soy products, almond and coconut milk, nutritional yeast and spirulina are equally if not more rich in protein nutrients.

If you are thinking pastries, there are lots of egg replacements you can use in baking. Here are just five of them you can consider using:

Bananas

Bananas are natural sweeteners and moisturizers for cakes and muffins so for a healthier snack. You do not have to use sugar as bananas are natural sweeteners.

 

Baking soda and vinegar

To achieve fluff in your eggless pastry, use this excellent combination.

Silken tofu
