Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a baking tray.
Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl; set aside. Beat the eggs and sugar together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Whisk in the vegetable oil, vanilla extract and orange juice. Stir in the chocolate chips and the flour mixture until no dry lumps remain. Divide the mixture into two pieces. Form each piece into a roll about 7.5cm wide and 15cm long. Place the rolls, side by side, onto the prepared baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven until the rolls have started to brown, about 20 minutes. Remove the rolls from the oven onto a rack. Let cool about 10 minutes until cool enough to handle; cut the mandel into 5mm thick slices. Return the biscuits to the baking tray, cut-side down.
Return to the oven and bake until lightly-golden, about 15 minutes more. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
