The major downside to any of the egg replacer powders is the same as with any specialty item - the cost. Ener-G is hard to find in my area, and when I do come across it the price is usually marked up so much that the relatively good value (one box makes about 100 "eggs") is diminished. Thankfully, I can now make my own (allergy-free!) egg replacement powder for next to nothing! I came across Whole New Mom's Do It Yourself Egg Substitute on Pinterest and with my supply of the brand-name stuff running low decided to give it a go with my Corn-Free Baking Powder.
This stuff works just as well as the "regular" kind, with all the same allergy-free bells and whistles. I tested it out in a batch of sugar cookies I was working to veganize as well as a chocolate chip muffin recipe calling for two eggs, and both came out identically to when I was adding the "real deal". If you're planning on baking for a specialty diet (or a large group with unknown allergies), this is your "golden ticket"!
