Ingredients

For the bars

  • 2 whole mandarin oranges (peeled)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp orange extract
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground almond butter
  • 1 cup slivered almond
  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the frosting

  • 1 whole mandarin orange (peeled)
  • 2 tsp fresh ground almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest

Instructions

  1. In a blender combine the peeled oranges and blend until smooth. Then strain it in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Then combine maple syrup, vanilla extract, orange extract, almond butter into the orange juice and whisk it very well. Keep it aside.

  3. In a food processor combine slivered almond and hemp seeds and grind until it’s in a powder form.

  4. Now fold in the hemp mixture, almond flour and salt into the wet ingredients and mix it well with a spatula. Feel free to use your hands to make it well-blended dough.

  5. Now, prepare a square or a rectangle small bowl with a greased parchment paper. Spoon the batter onto the prepared bowl. Then, grease your palms nicely to avoid the sticking of the dough. Spread the dough evenly in the bowl and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes. 

  6. In the meanwhile blend one orange again in a blender and strain it in a small glass bowl. Then add rest of the frosting ingredients in the orange juice and whisk it very nicely. Place the bowl in the freezer for 20 minutes. 

  7. Take out the bars and slice them into 10 pieces. Drizzle the orange frosting on the bars and enjoy.
