3 large organic eggs, at room temp

3/4 cup of coconut sugar

2 tsp lemon zest, grated

1/2 large lemon, juiced

Directions:

2. In a large mixing bowl add eggs and coconut sugar and beat with a hand mixer on medium speed until sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is slightly foamy.

3. Add lemon zest and juice and mix at medium speed for one minute. Now drop the goat cheese into the bowl by the tablespoonful, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides and beat on medium speed until the batter is smooth and fluffy.

4. Grease a 9" springform pan with Butter or Coconut oil very well and pour in the prepared mixture. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the top begins to turn golden brown and a thin knife or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
