Theme of the week: Healthy Bars and Biscuits

Day 5,week 3,and I have another healthy bar. You guys know that chocolate and orange is a favorite combo for me and these are the ingredients of today's bars.The original recipe had raspberry but I tweaked it and used orange marmalade with Nutella and chocolate chips. Later I felt I could have even used cooking chocolate , not that I was not happy with these. I loved the flavors , the only mistake I did was while slicing them into pieces, I used a crinkle knife, which made them look uneven. I was not happy with the pieces, but that did not alter the taste, taste was as good. The best part is these have a good shelf life too , so one can make these and pack and leave them in the frig for months.
