Do you think there might be an adequate substitution for the egg to make a vegan version?

Give two tablespoons of one of the following ingredients (or a combination) a try:

* Whole-wheat, unbleached, oat, or bean flour

* Finely crushed breadcrumbs, cracker meal, or matzo meal

* Cornstarch

* Quick-cooking rolled oats or cooked oatmeal

These are all good vegan substitutes in recipes that call for egg as a binder.
Let me know how they come out!
