Eggplant Parm - *Our* Recipe

Eggplant Parmesan is one of our favorite recipes!
We've tried numerous different recipes that we've found online, but we always ended up tweaking them, or thinking "next time lets try it this way". 
So we finally just came up with our own recipe & we love it!! 
This is definitely a recipe that takes a little more time.
Prep time takes us about 30 mins, and it bakes for 1 hour.
But if you have the time- it's so worth it! 

What You Need:
1 medium eggplant
2 1/2 cups almond flour
4 organic, cage free eggs
1 (8oz) container grated parmesan cheese
4 cups shredded organic whole milk mozzarella
Dried Parsley
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Sea Salt
1 jar tomato sauce (we use Garlic Roasted Garlic organic tomato sauce)
Coconut oil

What To Do:
1. Grease large cookie sheet & a glass 9x13 pan with coconut oil & set aside.

2. Slice eggplant into thin slices. (I always try to get at least 16 slices). Sprinkle each with sea salt.

3. In a shallow dish whip together all 4 eggs, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, and a few pinches each of garlic powder, and dried parsley. 

4. In another shallow dish, add 2 1/2 cups almond flour, 2 Tbsp garlic powder, 3 Tbsp dried parsley, 1 Tbsp onion powder, 2 tsp sea salt, 2 tsp pepper and mix together.

5. Dip each slice of eggplant into the egg batter, then in the almond flour making sure to cover both sides, and lay it on the greased cookie sheet (we always slightly overlap our eggplant slices).  

6. Once all slices have been battered, broil on High until they become slightly brown and crispy (this never takes long AT ALL...we usually only broil ours for about 2 minutes- so keep an eye them!). 

7. In the greased 9x13 pan, put a thin layer of sauce, then sprinkle some parmesan cheese, then sprinkle mozzarella cheese, then add the eggplant slices(we usually use 8 slices per layer)- slightly overlapping each other. Then repeat- another layer of sauce, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggplant slices. 

8. Once you have used all of your eggplant slices, we top it with one last layer of sauce, then mozzarella cheese, and then we sprinkle the very top with parmesan cheese, dried parsley, and garlic powder.

9. Cover with aluminum foil & bake at 350 for 1 hour.
