Notes

Vegan orange and chocolate cookies can be stored at room temperature for 3-4 days in a closed box.
Variation 1: even the lemon zest is perfect for this recipe. When the orange season is over I find lemon zest (2 lemons) a suitable replacement.
Variation 2: it’s also possible to keep the chocolate out and use the lemon zest and blackberry jam.
