  • 2 tablespoon flaxmeal mixed with 6 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and all of the wet ingredients in a larger bowl.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and, with a spatula or whisk, mix until everything's well incorporated. Don't overmix once the ingredients have come together.
