1/2cupbrewed coffeecooled (the dark roast of coffee the better)
In a blender, pulse 1 1/2 cups of the oats until a flour-like consistency. In a large bowl, toss to combine oat flour, remaining 1/2 cup oats, protein powder, cocoa powder, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, chia seeds, ground flax sees, and dried cherries.
In a separate bowl, combine coffee, almond butter, and honey. Pour peanut butter mixture over the oat mixture and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Lightly spray a 9 x 9-Inch square pan or an 11 x 7-inch pan with not stick spray and press mixture into the pan.
Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in a small saucepan on low heat, stirring often. Once melted, drizzle on top of the bar mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or until firm. Slice into 12 bars, store refrigerated in an airtight container.
