In a bowl, whisk eggs. Set aside. In another bowl mix almond flour, cheese and spices. Place eggplant sticks into egg mix, then roll in almond flour mixture.
Option 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Option 2: Fry in a pan with coconut oil until golden brown. THESE WERE AWESOME!!!
