I love all things citrus. Lemonade in my glass, lime in my guacamole, and now orange in my chocolate chip cookies!

This recipe first came into my life 10 years ago from California. Today it’s been modified and perfected to this current recipe.  I love the oatmeal chewiness, and the refreshing slightly orange taste.  Not only will you need a glass of milk,  you’ll also need a zester.  If you don’t already own one, this little ditty is amazing, and so easy to clean.
