– 5 pasture raised eggs
room temperature works best
pure maple syrup or cane sugar
of in season fruit such as apples or pears
chopped (in a pinch, cinnamon applesauce works really well!)
of coconut oil or butter
Preheat oven to 350.
Wash and chop fruit and place it in the bottom of a pie pan. Add coconut oil or butter and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Using your hands, mix the fruit, cinnamon and oil/butter well. Place this in the oven while making the egg mixture.
Crack and separate your pasture raised eggs, setting aside the yolks. Whisk the whites on high until stiff peaks form (don’t walk away, this doesn’t take very long).
While the whites are whipping, add the maple syrup or cane sugar, vanilla and remaining cinnamon to the egg yolks. Mix well.
When the whites have formed stiff peaks, add in the yolk mixture. Gently combine by hand, so they don’t get over mixed.
Take the fruit out of the oven and top it with the egg mixture.
Bake for 16-20 minutes or until golden on top and cooked through the middle.
