Chocolate Orange Energy Bars

Chocolate and Orange are my favourite sweet combination. I always get peckish between breakfast and lunch and these fudgy, chocolatey bars will give you the boost that you need.


  • 380g Dates (I used a combination of regular dates and Medjool dates)
  • 100g Pecans (or whichever nut/s you prefer)
  • 4tbsp Cacoa powder
  • 2tbsp ground Chia seeds
  • 3tsp orange flavouring


  1. Chop the Dates into quarters and remove any pips
  2. In a food processor, add a 1/4 of each of the ingredients so that layers will form. Repeat until all the ingredients are in the processor (so that the ingredients will become well combined while processing)
  3. Process all the ingredients in the processor for 1-2 minutes, or until the ingredients are well combined and in one solid dough-like texture
  4. Line a medium baking or glass tray with baking paper
  5. Place the mixture in the tray and push flat to the sides
  6. Place into the fridge for one hour. Then slice into rectangular shapes and enjoy!

(To store: Fridge in a sealed container)
