Place almonds, flax meal, shredded coconut, whey powder, almond butter, and salt in a food processor. Pulse briefly, about 10 seconds.
In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil over very low heat. Remove coconut oil from stove; stir stevia and vanilla into oil.
Add coconut oil mixture to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a thick paste. Press mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish.
Chill in refrigerator for one hour, until mixture hardens.
Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars, and serve.
