Chocolate orange slice

Chocolate orange slice

Chocolate and orange is a classic flavour combination and a favorite of mine. These bars are quick to make, contain nourishing fats, and are high in fibre; making it a filling and satisfying snack. This slice keeps together well out of the fridge so makes the perfect accompaniment to a child’s lunch box.


Makes 12 slices

3 cups desiccated coconut
1 cup cashews
zest of two oranges
4 tbs orange juice
2 tbs maple syrup
3 tbs chia seeds
½ tsp grated vanilla
pinch of salt

Chocolate Topping
½ cup cacao butter
¼ cup coconut oil
½ cup cacao powder
¼ cup maple syrup
pinch of salt


  1. Place all ingredients for the base in a food processor, and process into a fine crumb.
  2. Press the base into a lined slice tin.
  3. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
  4. Remove base from tin, and cut into slices.
  5. To make the topping, melt cacao butter and coconut oil in a pot over a low heat.
  6. Remove cacao butter and coconut oil from the heat and add cacao powder, maple syrup and salt. Whisk to combine.
  7. Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over the slices.
  8. Return the slices to the fridge for 1 hour to set the chocolate.

Store slices in the fridge.
