Healthy Chocolate Orange Flapjacks

Chocolate Orange


Makes 10 bars


200g rolled oats

30g cacao powder (or cocoa)

50g cacao nibs (finely chopped dark chocolate is fine!)

100g mixed peel

4 tbsp nut butter

6 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

6 tbsp maple syrup

A few drops of orange essence

For the chocolate topping:

75g dark chocolate

1 tbsp coconut oil

A few drops of orange essence

For this recipe, I used silicone bar mounds but you can bake it in one mixture and chop into bars yourself.


1- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. If using a single baking tray, grease a 20cm x 20cm tin and line with a single layer of greaseproof paper.

2- Combine all the flapjack ingredients in a large bowl. If the Nut butter you’re Using is thick, microwave for 20 seconds to soften it a little and allow it to be mixed in to the oats easily.

3- Either divide the mixture between the silicone bar mould trays or pour the mix into the greased and lined tray. Press the mixture lightly in the mounds or tin.

4- In the moulds, bake for 14-15 minutes. In the single tray, bake for 16-17 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Leave to cool completely in the baking tray.

For the topping:

5- Melt the dark chocolate in a microwaveable dish for 20 second bursts until completely melted. Add the coconut oil and drops of orange essence. Taste the chocolate to make sure the orange flavour is strong enough for your own personal taste!

6- Drizzle the chocolate over the bars and leave to set in the fridge.

7- Chop into bars and enjoy!
