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.
