Eggs provide structure, moisture and richness in baked goods and other prepared dishes; they act as a leavening ingredient. Chia and Flax gels need help with leavening, but make satisfactory substitutes for eggs in baked goods. If you start with whole seeds, grind the amount you need in a coffee grinder.
