  • 1 tsp maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk or other unsweetened dairy free milk


  • Add the maple syrup and almond milk to a small bowl.
  • Whisk together with a fork or small whisk.
  • Using a pastry brush, lightly coat your pastry.
  • Bake according to the recipe directions.


  • If you are making a savory bake, refrain from using a substitute that uses a sweetener. Instead try melted coconut oil, or melted vegan butter.
  • Using this egg wash substitute will result in browning more easily as the sugars heat more quickly in the oven.
  • Use a pastry brush to gently apply.
