Substitute eggs with applesauce or bananas…..

Whether you’re looking to make a vegan-friendly dessert or you’re simply out of eggs, both bananas and applesauce can be used as a good alternative. The general rule is to use one mashed banana or 1/4 cup of applesauce per one egg called for in the recipe.

* I had never heard of this one. Thank you to Megan M. for passing this one along.
