Fudge Pecan Walnut Tart

     This is definitely one of those rare occasion desserts!!!  High in Fat, High in Flavor and Low in Carbs.  So every once in a while, go crazy on a Holiday and have a sliver!!!  This makes 10 servings, (macros are not including Pecan garnish or Cool Whip topping), each slice has 307 calories, 3.3g net carbs and 8g protein.  Go slow and savor every bite!!!  ;)

1.5 cups Pecans
4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, divided
1/2 scoop Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder
1/3 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
2 teaspoons Himalayan Salt, divided
1.5 cups Walnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 scoop Quest Chocolate Protein Powder
1/3 cup Walden Farms Maple Syrup
Sugared Pecans for garnish, if desired
Whipped Cream for garnish, if desired

     Place Pecans, 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, Peanut Butter Protein Powder, Erythritol and 1 teaspoon Salt in Food Processor and blend til smooth, pat in bottom of Spring Form Pan and set in refrigerator til chilled and firm.  Meanwhile, place Walnuts, Cocoa Powder, 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil,  Chocolate Protein Powder, Syrup and last teaspoon Salt in Food Processor and blend til smooth, and pour over top of crust, pat down til smooth.  Garnish with Pecans and Whipped Cream if desired, Enjoy  :)
