Almond Coconut Bars

1/2 C flax seed meal
5 T lowfat cream cheese
1/2 C sliced almonds (blanched and raw)
5 scoops chocolate whey protein powder
1/2 C granulated Splenda
1/4 C water
1/2 T oil
1 t coconut extract
2 teaspoons almond extract

Microwave the cream cheese just until it's soft enough to mix. Combine all dry ingredients in bowl, and then mix in the rest, until it becomes a big glob. Resist the temptation to add more water; just keep stirring and it will mix. Press into 8x8 brownie pan, sprayed with Pam. Chill and cut into 5 pieces. Put each piece in plastic wrap and store in fridge or freezer.
