As more people embrace vegan eating, they’re discovering how common kitchen staples, including coconut oil, bananas, baking powder – and even diet soda! – can be used to replace eggs in their favourite recipes.

Baking powder combined with vinegar is a tried-and-true egg substitute that helps to bind ingredients and make cakes rise.
