Protein Pecan Pie

     Protein Pecan Pie is the close cousin to my Healthy Pecan Pie.  The major difference is the addition of Protein Powder to the ingredients, ... which only makes sense being that I am a Protein Powder Baker...  ;)  My Protein Pecan Pie has a more cake like consistency, and each of the 8 pieces are only 260 calories, 3g net carbs and 15g protein (macros don't include Whipped Topping garnish).  With either recipe you can't go wrong, Enjoy  ;)

Ingredients for 8 pieces~
2 Quest Cinnamon Roll Protein Bars
2 jumbo Eggs, beaten
1/4 cup Butter, softened to room temperature
1/4 cup Lakanto Maple Syrup~use code Paige20 for discount at checkout
1/2 cup Swerve Brown Sugar Erythritol
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Vanilla
Dash Salt
1 scoop Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder
1 and 1/4 cup Pecan Halves
Whipped Topping as garnish, if desired

     Microwave unwrapped Quest Bars for 15-20 seconds and press into bottom and a centimeter up sides of 9" Pam sprayed pie pan.  Stir together remaining ingredients and pour into pan, use part of Pecans to garnish if desired.  Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  Enjoy  :)
