Orange chocolate chip cookies

Fruit or chocolate? Cookies or cake? Why not have it all in one? That's what orange chocolate chip cookies are for me. I and the raising eyebrows' taster at home particularly like the combination of orange and chocolate, as I'm sure most of you dear readers do.

I'm too tired to write anything else except the recipe, but if I have time tomorrow, I'll tell you why... or most likely show you. Winter and sea lovers will be excited to see. ;)


2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter/ coconut oil (I prefer the latter, as it adds a little more exotic feel to the cookies)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
4 tb. sp. orange juice
1 t. sp. orange zest
1 t. sp. baking powder
1/2 t. sp. baking soda
1/4 t. sp. salt
chocolate chip


1. Mix the butter/ coconut oil with the sugar until creamy.
2. Add the eggs one by one, whisking them well.
3. Add the orange juice and zest and continue whisking.
3. Add the baking powder, the baking soda and the salt to the flour and sift it in the bowl where the wet ingredients are. Mix well together.
4. Finally, add the chocolate chip and integrate in the dough. 
5. Let it rest wrapped in plastic foil in the fridge for a day. (I wasn't feeling like waiting, so I made them the same day.)
6. Bake in a 200 C oven. Let them cool for about 5 minutes, before you remove them from the baking paper. Leave them on a rack to cool additionally. Enjoy! :)

I also did a batch with coffee and raisin, but they weren't as good.


  1. Това са любимите бисквити на сина ми, вкъщи той ги нарича "Курабийките на мама Кенга". Благодаря ти, за споделената вкусна рецепта, Мари! :)

    1. Радвам се, че се харесват и на твоето семейство, Ева. Трябва да споделиш, защо синът ти ги е наименувал така. :)

  2. Hi, Marie! Thanks for the friend request on Foodbuzz. I buzzed ya :)
    And I joined your network and liked you on Facebook!

    These cookies look and sound delicious. I love how orange and chocolate flavors compliment each other.

    Happy Cooking!

    1. Thank you, Shelly! It's nice to meet like-minded people. ;)

  3. Hi Marie - these remind me of these orange and chocolate cookies made by the company Bahlsen which I buy from time to time here... only problem is those ones are literally the size for one bite. Two if you want to be really dainty. These look like proper sized cookies - and as Shelly said, chocolate and orange are a really fabulous combination!

    1. Hehe, I know what you mean. There are some mini chocolate-chip cookies here too. I first saw the regular sized ones in the US. It was a WOW moment for me, as I hadn't seen such big cookies. :)

  4. Chocolate and Orange...You got me in there with these two words!! I am crazy about this combo and your cookies look so perfectly baked. Bookmarked

    1. Thank you! :) I'm also a huge fan of orange + chocolate. :)
