Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

2 cups of flour
1 ½ cups of sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup milk
3 ½ cups of oats
Grated peel from 1 orange
6 ounces of chocolate chips
½ cup of chopped nuts (optional)
2 eggs
1 cup of salad oil (I used melted butter)

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, soda, cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in the oats, orange peel, chocolate chips, and nuts. Beat eggs slightly and stir in the milk. Stir this into the flour mixture along with the salad oil. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
