Raw Choco-Orange Bites

choco-orange bites

One of my favourite treats are the Nakd bars, they’re so scrummy especially as they’re made from just fruit and nuts, looking at the packet last time I had one, I realised they’d be pretty straightforward to recreate at home. Because the fruit gives these a high sugar content, I made them into smaller balls rather than a bar, one of these with my tea in the afternoon is a yummy treat without giving too much sugar!

I keep mine in the fridge {if they’re on the side they’ll last five mintues!} I’m planning on making another batch this week and changing the orange for some peppermint. Let me know if you try these!

    Oh these look so good! I love the nakd choc orange bars but they get pricy if you snaffle them up to often!

    The words dates and raisins don’t usually appeal to me, but these actually look really good!

  16. April 18, 2014 / 09:07

    I’m not a fan of dates or almonds so I don’t think they’re for me but the kids and the hubby would love them so I’m pinning!
