Chocolate Almond Protein Bars

Get to the kitchen RIGHT NOW and make these amazing snack bars.  They are very filling healthy snack, I even enjoy them as dessert.  Lately I have been having one every afternoon for my snack!  Let me know if you try them and what you think.  I got this recipe from a friend who is very health concious. 

 Yum, look at that layer of chocolate
These are almost as good as peanut butter bars!
Chocolate Almond Protein Bars
1 cup almond flour
1 cup dry roasted almonds (I used unsalted)
1/2 cup flax meal
1/2 cup shredded coconut (I used unsweetened)
3 scoops protein powder (I used 2 scoops chocolate, 1 scoop vanilla)
1 small packet stevia
2 T honey
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted slightly
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 cups dark chocolate chips (for the top of the bars)

Place everything except the chocolate chips in food processor.  Pulse until slightly ground (depends on how chunky you want the almonds).  Press into an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper.  Place in refrigerator.  Melt chocolate chips according to package directions (I did mine in the microwave because it is so fast).  Pour chocolate over bars and put back in fridge about an hr.  Cut into bars and store in fridge (if chocolate is too hard to cut let it sit on the counter for 10 minutes).
Mine made about 10 bars.
