Zingy Citrus Glow Bars

Create snacks that are good to GLOW with these heavenly bars!

I made these a couple of weeks ago, ate some, shared some, stashed some (freezer) so now this week I’ll have snacks ready! I love the colour from the turmeric – it’s so pretty, isn’t it?

These are such a great snack mid afternoon (hi there, 3pm…) to keep your appetite at bay until dinner. Make them and keep on hand for mid-morning, afternoon, or after dinner treats. Perfect for when someone pops around for a cuppa!

Zingy Citrus Glow Bars

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Freezing Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes


  • food processor


  • 2 cups cashews raw
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 ½ tsp orange zest
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple/brown rice syrup, whichever is in the pantry and you prefer
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil or MCT oil


  • In a food processor combine raw cashews with coconut and blitz to a crumb.
  • Add orange juice, orange zest, cinnamon, turmeric, honey/maple/rice malt syrup and either oil.
  • Blitz it all together so it’s a sticky raw ‘dough’, then press into a square lined cake or loaf tin and set in the fridge for a few hours.
  • Cut into squares or bar shapes. You could roll them if you like the ball effect but to be honest I can’t be bothered with ball rolling it’s my LEAST favourite job in the kitchen!


Store in the freezer & take out as needed.
