Difference of chia eggs and flax eggs?

Just like chia, you can also use → flax seeds to make vegan eggs. Flax seeds combine like magic. And great for all vegan recipes.

How I use the 2 types of eggs:

  • Chia egg = Desserts, sweets, cakes, pancakes and waffles ..
  • Flax egg = Recipes for anything else that sweets. Mains, burger patties, meat balls, fritters etc.

There is no rules when you use chia or flax seeds. But normally I will divide them like this. Mostly, because I don not think it’s a good idea for any recipes to add chia seeds in my danish ‘frikadeller’ or patties. Or to add flax seeds in sweets.
