Baking With Eggs

I have leaky gut and MS-like symptoms. I have not eaten eggs for nearly five months, although I was not eating a lot of eggs. I really don't like eggs, so I don't ever have to eat a scrambled or boiled egg again. However, the coconut flour recipes that I would like to try all require eggs, and egg substitutes don't work well. Is baking with eggs just as bad as eating them cooked?

Sorry, if SHE really can't stand eggs. Oops.

This is what I was going to suggest, if he really can't stand eggs.

If you wanted to stay away from eggs, coconut flour probably wouldn't be the thing for you. Because it's gluten-free, you need a lot more eggs than in a regular baking recipes, as it'll act as gluten to keep everything together. I made crepes the other day, and they were pretty eggy, and I saw a cake recipe that called for 10 eggs to 1/2C coconut flour.

How do you know you have leaky gut?

Yup, I'm often alright with fully cooked eggs. I normally try to cook the whites as much as possible while leaving the yolks somewhat soft, but this inevitably leaves some of the white not fully cooked.

People are also using flax seeds in similar way.

OK. The "I really don't like eggs" line confused me.

I have a friend that feels poor on runny eggs, but pounds them hardboiled fully cooked with no visible side effects. totally his n=1. I personally cook the white fully and leave the yolk runny and eat of ton that way with no visible side effects.

I believe the concern is with the possibility of eggs contributing to the leaky gut situation, being that she has/had symptoms, she is attempting to avoid them, not just not taste them.

On paper, baked egg ought to be as bad as eggs equally cooked through other methods. It's possible, however, that your baked eggs would simply be more cooked than eggs cooked in other ways and cooked eggs are sometimes better tolerated than less cooked eggs (at least in my case).

I have heard of people making a 'faux' egg by combining water and chia seeds.

A quick google search yielded this

result.

Eggs are included in backing recipes for their leavening and emulsifying properties. Unless you are making someone with a characteristic egg flavor (for example: egg bread, custard, quiche) you will not be able to taste the egg.

Have you eliminated grains and dairy yet? I assume so since you are posting here, but maybe not. Why do you think eggs are the problem?
