Egg Replacer

95% of the time these days, when "egg replacer" is called for, I just use ground flaxseed mixed with water. In things like oatmeal cookies or pumpkin bread, this works like a dream.

For those rare times when you don't want healthy-feeling chunks of seeds in your food, you might still turn to Ener-G egg replacer. Well, I'm here to tell you that this random recipe I found on the internet while googling works just as well, and it doesn't cost like $10 a box. Use it in general tso's tofu, in pumpkin pie, etc.

No picture. Honestly, I could post a picture of baking soda, or of cocaine, and it would look the same.

EDIT: Ok, here's a photo.
