Chocolate and Orange Biscuits

These slimming-friendly Chocolate and Orange Biscuits are a delicious snack whether you’re counting calories or following a plan like Weight Watchers.

This time last year, I was making butter laden, mega fatty shortcake biscuits…tasty as they were, they were not good for my waistline. So this year, I’ve baked these Chocolate and Orange Biscuits instead (with a little help from Kate’s Gingerbread Bites).

You can decorate them however you like – I like to pipe over the dark chocolate and sprinkle over some edible gold glitter to make them look really festive! You can pick some up on Amazon!

These Chocolate and Orange Biscuits can be cut into any shape you like. I used a 5cm Star Cutter. You can find one in this set from Amazon.

If you do decide to use a different cutter you may need to adjust the calories or points etc depending on how many you get out of the mix.

You’ll also need some Orange Extract. It’s amazing stuff!  It gives an intense orangey flavour so you only need a tiny bit. You can pick some up from Amazon if you can’t find any in the supermarkets.

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Rub in the flora light until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the finely grated zest of one orange, orange extract, sukrin 1 and 25 grams of the chocolate chips and mix thoroughly. Mix in the egg to form a ball of dough.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to about 5mm and cut into 42 shapes (I used a 5cm star cutter). Place onto a baking tray lined with parchment and lightly spray with frylight.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes until golden. Leave to cool.
  5. Melt the remaining dark chocolate chips and once the biscuits are cool, drizzle over. Decorate however you like and serve!

  1. Can anybody tell me how much sweetener to use for this recipe? I’m using a sucrulose based granulated sweetener from Tesco

  2. Hello, I’ve made these biscuits today. They taste good but are a little dry, any idea what I may have done wrong? Pretty sure I followed the recipe measurements.

    1. Hi Loz,

      They’re a bit of both! They should be crunchy on the outside and then have a soft, crumbliness to the middle 😊
