Orange Marmalade Almond Bars


Thank you Teresa of Keeping It Real for the Feature of my Bittersweet Coffee Cake
Love comes in different colors.💗🧡💓. In my world of homebaking, Orange is the New Pink! I am having Orange Marmalade Almond Bars today. I can't contain my excitement, these bars are gorgeous and delicious. Oh I love them, I think I will have a series of baking to do, all with Orange fruit, be it bars, brownies, cookies, squares, cupcakes, muffins and cakes.🎂 Remember the Reader's Digest Book of Cookies Circa long time ago that I bought in a thrift shop? Well I got the recipe from there but I made some slight changes. As you know I always change and formulate according to my taste.



3/4 cup plain flour

3/4 cup quick cook porridge oats

1/3 cup firmly pack soft brown sugar

1/3 cup cold butter

1/2 tsp almond essence

1/4 cup flaked almonds and more

1 cup orange marmalade

1 tsp orange zest 


In a food processor, combine flour, oats, and sugar.

Cover and process until blended.

Add butter and almond essence, cover and pulse until crumbly.

Remove 1/2 cup crumb mixture to a bowl, stir in flaked almonds.

Press remaining mixture into a greased 23 cm square baking tin

Spread marmalade over crust, sprinkle with reserve crumb mixture.

Bake at 180 for 30 minutes or until golden

Cool in tin on a wire rack. Cover and set aside in the fridge for 6 hours/overnight

Cut into bars and enjoy!!!

These bars are exactly the kind of treat that you would want to bring during get together and potluck. It is tangy and sweet with lots of nutty almonds. Its such a crowd pleaser for everyone to get tempted and enjoy. Lets eat, Lets giggle and Lets be merry.
