Orange Bars Recipe

This is a partnered post with Summer Citrus from South Africa.

I love to bake. There’s just something homey and cozy about whipping something up in the kitchen, and it’s definitely the Texan way of life to show love to others with baked goods. We had some delicious navel oranges from Summer Citrus From South Africa that I really wanted to use in a dessert.

The brightness these oranges provide a great flavor that comes through and makes this a stellar treat (and hey, if you’re going to have dessert, you can feel good that their navel oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and calcium)!

I took these to work to share with coworkers (this is the only way I can bake – if I don’t share my treats, I want to eat them all!) and they disappeared pretty quickly, which is always a good sign.

Instead of step-by-step photos to guide you through the orange bars recipe, I shot a quick video of the process. Check out our setup (major thanks to my amazing husband for sharing his shooting & editing skills):

Here’s the video – I hope you’ll give these a try! The full recipe is below.
