  1. Whisk together the oat flour, protein powder, poppy seeds and kosher salt. Add the cashew butter, honey, coconut oil and lemon extract. Use your hands to mix it all together. It will be dry at first but will come together. You want the batter to be thick and firm.
  2. Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Line with a sheet of parchment paper with ends that extend about 2 inches over two sides of the pan. Press the dough down firmly with your hands into an even layer. Top with the chocolate chips and flaky sea salt and gently press into the dough. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours. Then cut into desired-size bars. Store in the fridge.
