I need to make these. NEED! But not sure what I could replace the egg white with - egg replacer? Would that taste weird?

I had this quest a while back when making smoked almonds - there is a thread about it somewhere here.

I found the best solution for me was to soak some whole flax seeds in little bit of warm water until it gets all slimy and then use the slimy stuff (mucilage) as the egg white. It worked awesomely because it didn't inject any flax flavour and provided that very thin sticky coating that became totally dry (and not sticky) when cooked.

here is the almond thread http://forum.theppk.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=21513&hilit=almonds

I've never used an egg replacement but I know chia seeds can be used as a replacement when soaked as well. I wonder if they would work.

Those look really tasty. If it were me, I'd probably just throw the almonds in a bit of agave to get them sticky since it seems like the egg white is just used to get the other stuff to stick.

Moon, chia seeds can work, but wouldn't work very well here.

Maybe agave would be best...and bake them instead of putting them in the slow cooker?

Agave works well but you end with a sticky nut as opposed to the 'egg-white' method which keeps the nuts dry on the outside but the flavours are adhered to the nut and don't slip off...kinda sealed in: both work but the end results are quite different.
