Pulse dates, almonds, protein powder, spirulina, lemon juice, and lemon zest in food processor until doughlike and thick. Test consistency by pinching dough between two fingers—it should stick together easily. If too dry, add water 1 tsp. at a time until desired consistency is achieved.

Line cutting board with plastic wrap. Press into a compact mound on plastic wrap. Loosely wrap with the plastic, then use rolling pin to firmly flatten into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle. Unwrap, and cut into bars.
