Why you should be eating more Pecans

Surprisingly one oz of Pecans clock in at 1 carb, 20 fat and 3 protein! That is 92% fat! Pecans are full of healthy monounsaturated fats and contain very few saturated fats. These fat packed nuts are a great source of oleic acid. This fatty acid has been shown to reduce inflammation, improve immune system functioning, and potentially reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Instructions:

  • First,  place all but the reserved 15 pecan halves into the food processor. Turn the food processor on and blend until the pecans have reached the pecan butter consistency. This should take 1-2 minutes. If your food processor takes longer to make the pecan butter don’t give up, eventually it will turn into Pecan Butter and be ready for the next step.

  • Add the melted coconut into the food processor and pulse until combined.
  • Next line a tray with waxed paper. Roll the Pecan mixture into balls that are roughly 1/2 tbs in size.  Press a pecan half inside the middle of each pecan butter ball with half sticking out and then place the tray inside the freezer for about 15 minutes or until frozen.

  • Meanwhile, Melt the bakers chocolate with the coconut oil in a microwave safe measuring cup. Next pulse the microwave for no more than 15 seconds so that you do not burn the chocolate in the microwave.
  • Next, add stevia to taste to the chocolate mixture. and stir to combine. It is important to remember to taste the chocolate and add more or less stevia accordingly. 
  • Set out 15 mini baking cups and then pour the chocolate mixture into each cup.
  • Next, using the pecan as a handle, place each pecan butter ball into the chocolate mixture and then place the tray inside of the freezer. Freeze the Keto Maple Pecan Truffles for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
  • Finally serve the Maple Pecan Truffles. Remember that the chocolate is not tempered and for this reason the keto truffles need to be stored inside the freezer or refrigerator so they do not melt. The keto truffles can stand being out of the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes without melting straightaway as long as the room is not significantly warm.
