Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Beat the butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add regular sugar and brown sugar, salt, and vanilla; beat until well mixed, about three minutes. Stir eggs into the mixture, one at a time.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove in a separate bowl. Then with the mixer on low speed, add half of the flour mixture to the butter. Add the second half of the flour mixture once the first half is mixed in.
Stir in the oats, pecans, orange zest, and chocolate chips.
Scoop the dough one tablespoon at a time onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on a rack.
