I was looking through my Notes app recently and found this recipe I’d saved in 2014. Of course, I had to make it again and it was great – a very delicious, easy quick treat for the freezer box (my perennial healthy treat Tupperware container where I store all my baking. It avoids eating all the treats at once, plus they never go off…and there’s an on-going supply for kids, visitors and my afternoon tea).

I left out the orange essential oil as I didn’t have any, and my sesame seed supply was low so I topped up with sunflower seeds. I also played around with the add-ins depending on what I had. Feel free to do the same as it’s a good recipe for adapting.

(I have no idea where the recipe came from, sorry!).

Raw Choc Orange Brownies


  • 75g sesame seeds or sunflower seeds (or combination of both)
  • 100g almond
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 150g organic dark chocolate (I used 70%)

  • 5-6 drops pure Orange Essential Oil (or to taste)
  • 30g coconut sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g walnuts
  • 50g coconut
  • 2tblsp goji berries


  1. In high speed blender or Thermomix, grind till finely ground seeds, almonds and sea salt. Put aside.
  2. Melt together chocolate, coconut oil, Orange Essential Oil, coconut sugar and vanilla.
  3. Add ground nut and seed mix to chocolate mix and stir till well combined.
  4. Stir through walnuts, coconut and goji berries.
  5. Spread onto a small, lined baking tray and sprinkle with extra coconut and goji berries if desired.
  6. Place in fridge till firm before cutting into squares.
