Makes 14-16 bars
Brush a 28cm x 22cm shallow baking tray with olive oil, and line with cling film.
Place the dates, oats, cocoa powder and chia seeds in the large bowl of the food processor and blitz until the mixture is thick. Throw in the coconut, cashew nuts, orange zest and orange juice and continue to whiz until the mixture ‘comes together’. This might take three to four minutes, but rest assured, it will suddenly ‘clump’.
Spoon into the prepared tin, smoothing over and pressing firmly down with the back of an oiled spoon. Place in the fridge to chill and firm up for 3-4 hours. Remove from the fridge and pour over the melted chocolate, smooth over with a pallet knife. Return to the fridge to harden.
Slice into chunky bars.
