Servings: 6 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes


For Eggplant:

  • 2 large Eggplant (2 lb; sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds)
  • Sea salt

For Breading:

  • 30 g Wholesome yum coconut flour
  • 4 large Eggs (beaten)
  • 85.05 g Pork rinds
  • 112 g Wholesome yum blanched almond flour
  • 50 g Grated parmesan cheese
  • 14.79 g Italian seasoning
  • 3.7 g Garlic powder
  • 1.23 g Black pepper

For Assembly:

  • 473.18 ml Marinara sauce (no sugar added)
  • 680.39 g Fresh mozzarella cheese (sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds)
  • Fresh basil


  1. You can do this optional step: Place the eggplant slices on cutting boards or baking sheets in one layer, sprinkle with salt, and let it sit for about an hour. Rinse off the salt and pat the eggplant dry. This can help make the eggplant less bitter.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degrees Celsius) and line one large or two small baking sheets with fresh parchment paper.
  3. Prepare three shallow bowls:
    Bowl 1: Coconut flour
    Bowl 2: Beaten eggs
    Bowl 3: Pork rinds, almond flour, grated Parmesan, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  4. Coat the eggplant slices with a thin layer of coconut flour, dip them in the beaten eggs, and press them into the breadcrumb mixture. Place the pieces on the baking sheets without touching them.
  5. Bake the eggplant slices for 25-30 minutes until soft when pierced with a fork and lightly golden.
  6. Spread 1/2 cup (118 ml) of marinara sauce on the bottom of a 9×13 stoneware casserole dish. Arrange the eggplant slices in one layer, top with 3/4 cup (177 ml) marinara and half of the mozzarella slices. Repeat with a second layer of eggplant, 3/4 cup (177 ml) of marinara, and remaining mozzarella slices.
  7. Bake the eggplant parmesan for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the casserole is hot. You can garnish it with fresh basil if you like.
