  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 3 hours, 5 minutes
  • Yield: 15-18 slices 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


These dried orange slices are sprinkled with spices and coconut sugar. Make them for a cocktail garnish or healthy snack. Paleo and vegan!


Units Scale
  • 2 large blood oranges or navel oranges, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or granulated sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • dash of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. Wash and dry oranges, then cut into very thin slices (as thin as possible). Lay them flat on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, mix your spices and sugar.
  4. Sprinkle evenly over orange slices.
  5. Dry in the oven at 200°F. for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. If your orange slices are thick, they will take longer.
  6. After removing them from the oven, add more spices and/or sugar, if desired.
  7. Store in a cool dry place. Ziplock works great!


NOTES for EATING –> to make sure the rinds don’t taste bitter, cut EXTRA thin and add sugar and/or spice to edges before baking
