Mock pecan pie egg replacer?

I was reading through my friends page today and someone was looking for a mock apple pie recipe. I remember making one in High School with Ritz crackers and it was strange and tasted like apple pie. So I was looking to see how exactly you made it and someone posted a link to a website with mock apple, pecan and pumpkin pie recipes. Pecan pie is my favorite and I love trying weird sounding things so I was pretty excited to try this recipe out, however it calls for 4 eggs that I am not sure what to replace them with, or if there is anything to replace them with that will work in this application. I might just be out of luck....Any ideas?

Mock Pecan Pie
~ a "pecan pie" with no pecans ~

Pastry for a 9-inch pie
1 cup cooked pinto beans, rinsed
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup margarine
4 eggs, well beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla


* (1) Puree beans in blender until smooth,
or mash the beans really well.
* (2) Mix beans and other ingredients well.
* (3) Pour into an unbaked pie crust.
* (4) Bake at 375 degrees until center is set.

Tastes just like pecan pie ...really!
