Cut the eggplant into evenly sized sticks resembling thick-cut fries. You do not have to remove the skin of the eggplant.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the panko breadcrumb, the parmesan, and the garlic power.
In a second bowl, whisk the eggs together.
Take one eggplant stick at a time and dip it in the eggs.
Transfer to the panko mixture bowl and press the stick on all sides, so it’s covered with panko mixture. You will want to do this step quite fast to prevent the eggplant from soaking in the egg mixture and becoming soggy.
Spray the bottom of the air fryer's basket with oil, add the eggplant fries, and spray again on top.
Cook at 400 ˚F (200C) for about 8 minutes, flipping them halfway.
Sprinkle with sea salt and serve hot and fresh.
