2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (plus more to grease), room temperature
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 zest of orange
1/3 cup orange juice
1 cup chocolate chips

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 16 muffin cups. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cardamom. Mix well. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, add the sugar and butter and whisk for a few minutes until fluffy. Next add the eggs, vanilla, orange zest, orange juice, and chocolate chips. Stir until just combined and lump-free.
