Beans can be used in allergy-friendly baking
You can save the liquid from chickpeas or garbanzo beans also known as aquafaba and use it in allergy-friendly baking. Aquafaba can be whipped to stiff, glossy peaks similar to whipping egg whites.
Aquafaba is a great allergy-friendly alternative to baking with eggs. Use it to make dairy-free, egg-free macarons, gluten-free, vegan cookies and nut-free desserts. You can even use it to make vegan mayo! Here is a helpful guide to Aquafaba.
