It's terrific that we can substitute traditional grain-based flours with almond flour and coconut flours when baking Paleo. My gf's really into the Paleo deal -- she feels a major improvement in managing her asthma since cutting out gluten, dairy and sugar -- but she also finds that eggs trigger her asthma. Can anyone suggest alternatives to eggs for baked good recipes? The only thing we've been able to find is "Ener-G Egg Replacer." We bought some, but haven't tried it yet -- I'm a little wary of the last two ingredients on the label:
Ingredients: Potato Starch, tapioca starch flour, leavening (calcium lactate [not derived from dairy], calcium carbonate, citric acid), sodium carboxymethylcellulose, methylcellulosesubstitute.
As a side note -- GF was vegan for a number of years, if that has any bearing. She changed her lifestyle when she had her daughter, because she began feeling weak and sickly. We wonder if her years of living on a vegan diet created some intolerances to eggs -- and can she work them back into her diet somehow? Or is she probably simply allergic to them?
Thanks in advance!
