With just a few ingredients these Chocolate Orange Naked Bars are easy to create. High in natural sugars from the dates but ok for an occasional treat or pick me up.
Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 10 balls


  • 1 1/2 cups of nuts of your choice
  • 20 Medjool dates pitted and cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup cocao powder
  • 1-2 tsp. orange extract or 1 tbsp. orange juice and zest of orange
  • Pinch of salt


  • Add the nuts to a food processor and pulse until they are the texture you would like but not too long that it forms nut butter.
  • Place nuts in a bowl.
  • Process the dates until slightly broken down and then add the cacao powder, orange and salt.
  • Combine everything in the bowl and mix in well.
  • Make balls in the size you would like and place in tupperware and keep in the fridge or freezer.
