This Maple Pecan Cheese Cake Bars is really healthy since it is grain free, sugar free, low-carb, and paleo friendly.
A pecan, like the fruit of all other members of the hickory genus, is not truly a nut, but is technically a drupe, a fruit with a single stone or pit, surrounded by a husk.
The husks are produced from the exocarp tissue of the flower, while the part known as the nut develops from the endocarp and contains the seed.
They are also a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals such as manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium, offering some wonderful health benefits.
Pecan nuts contain monounsaturated fats such as oleic acid along with phenolic antioxidants which help reduce the risk of heart disease
