Add the almond butter and melted cocoa butter. Process continuously until a dough forms, pulls away from the center, feels firm to the touch, and leaves a fingerprint when pressed. It should be firm and shiny, not runny or crumbly. If it’s not uniform, you may need to manually stir and scrape the sides, then process more.

Press the protein bar dough tightly and evenly into the lined pan. Chop the remaining 1/4 cup (30 g) hazelnuts and press into the top. If desired, drizzle with melted chocolate (optional).

Place the pan in the fridge and chill for at least 1-2 hours, or until very firm. Run a knife along the edges of the pan if any part of the bars are touching the pan directly and not the parchment paper. Lift the bars out of the pan using the edges of the parchment paper, slide onto a cutting board, and cut into 12 bars, using a large chef’s knife with a straight down motion or rocking motion (do not see-saw, or bars may crumble).
