Orange juice and zest lend a citrus kick to these buttery oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, cream together the sugars and butter. Thoroughly whisk in the orange juice, orange zest, vanilla and eggs.

Stir in the oatmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Spoon tablespoonfuls of batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 11 to 14 minutes or until browned around the edges. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
