Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a baking dish with the coconut oil.

Fry the aubergine slices in coconut oil until golden brown. Set aside.

Sauté onions and garlic in the same skillet, add the minced meat and cook until browned.

Stir in tomatoes, tomato purée, oregano and cinnamon. Cook until thickened.

Prepare the béchamel sauce by melting the butter, stirring in flour, and gradually whisking in milk until thickened. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper, and then whisk in the eggs.

Layer half of the aubergine in the baking dish, spread all of the mince evenly, top with the remaining aubergine, and then pour the béchamel sauce over it. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Allow the dish to cool slightly and enjoy.
