    Elana's Pantry's Note:

    These no bake, high-protein, high-fiber bars are based upon Melissa Diane Smith’s recipe for Amaretto Protein Bars in her book Going Against the Grain and are a cinch to make. The chocolate topping makes them seem a bit decadent (skip it if you must, they’ll still come out fine) – though dark chocolate, rich in anti-oxidants has now entered the echelon of power foods so I’ll keep it on mine.

      Oh my goodness, these are so good! The nutty bottom layer is delicious and so healthy, but like others have said, the little bit of chocolate on top really makes these fantastic. (you could also make chocolate by mixing melted coconut oil, almond butter, stevia, vanilla, and cocoa to top this) I ran out of almonds so used a combo of walnuts and sunflowers for 1/2 of the nuts. Easy to put together- just wizz up in the processor and put in a pan. That's my kind of recipe. Easy with great results. Thanks!

      I used raw sugar and honey in place of the stevia and agave. 1 Tbsp each. Other than that I followed this like you have it. Not sweet, but so good! A 12th of this is very filling. The chocolate for me is a must. It's a bit like an almond joy, but it's a equal amount of both. Chewy, crunchy, lovely! Thank you!

      These are wonderful! My teenager is growing super fast but is very skinny, I am so glad I found these power bars to add to his diet in between the meals as they're full of good stuff and pretty high in calories. I didn't add any Stevia or Agave as I felt that almond butter and chocolate chips add just enough sweetness without it becoming too overwhelming. Thank you for sharing a keeper!
