Almond Power Bars

These no bake, high-protein, high-fiber bars are a cinch to make and easy to take along.

2 Cups Raw Almonds
1⁄2 Cup Flaxseed Meal
1⁄2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
2 Scoops Flavored Whey Protein Powder
1⁄2 Cup Raw Almond Butter
1⁄2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1⁄2 Cup Coconut Oil
8 Drops Liquid Stevia or 3⁄4 Teaspoon Stevia Powder, To Taste
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract (No sugar – check the label)
8 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted and sweetened to taste with stevia and cinnamon (optional)

Place almonds, flax meal, shredded coconut, whey powder, almond butter and salt in a food processor. Pulse briefly, about 10 seconds. In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil over very low heat. Remove coconut oil from stove; stir stevia and vanilla into oil.

Add coconut oil mixture to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a coarse paste. Press mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish. (A parchment paper liner helps when you want to remove the bars from the dish.) Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens. In a double boiler, melt chocolate, stirring in stevia and cinnamon. Spread melted chocolate over bars; return to refrigerator for 30 minutes, until chocolate hardens. Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars, and serve.
