On Monday evening, a sick relative requested some chocolate chip cookies to help them feel better.
I immediately starting assembling my ingredients only to discover that I didn’t have any eggs or egg replacer.
After a quick google search I found that ground flax and water was a good egg substitute (let’s leave aside the question of why I had FLAX but not eggs – my kitchen is a mystery, even to me.)
I was finding the mixture a little dry so I put a little yogurt in with it (yogurt was another suggested substitute) and the cookies turned out grand.
I know these substitutes work because of chemistry and whatnot but I prefer to think that I just used a different spell this time.
Let’s go with that.
