I want to bake this, but am not quite sure what to use in place of the eggs. It's a little different since the eggs are used in the filling. Any ideas?

I assume the eggs are used as a binding agent... so you'd need something wet and something that binds. I've never used ener-g, so I'm not sure how it works... but jam makes a good binding agent, so perhaps some orange jam would do the trick.

I would use 1/2 cup pureed silken tofu in place of 2 beaten eggs in that. It will set up like eggs will. Works in lemon bars, anyway.

I'd probably use vanilla soygurt. 1/2 cup would replace two eggs. I usually have this on hand and I think the vanilla flavor would work out well. I'm kind of surprised there isn't already vanilla in there. It frequently is used to complement brown sugar.

Vanilla soygurt and pureed tofu are pretty much variations on a theme.

To think some people restrict themselves to eggs for this kind of thing. And think egg-free cooking is overly limiting. Poor deluded souls

I never would have thought to use jam as a binding ingredient in baked goods. I always use mashed bananas but now want to experiment with the jams. Thanks for the info.

The recipe says "For the filling, combine eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla"... se yes, the vanilla would work well :P

Jam is my favourite binding agent for baking! You can use any flavour of it to complement whatever it is you are making. I especially love strawberry jam in cookies. I've actually never tried the mashed banana thing, may have to give that a go.

Somehow I missed that.
