"The recipe for these scrumptious cookies was handwritten in a cookbook I received from my husband's grandmother," notes Karin Woodbury of Ocala, Florida. "She told my husband when he was young that these treats were a good way to get his carrots. He loved then anyway!"


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. In a large bowl, beat brown sugar and oil until blended. Beat in eggs, then milk. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually add to egg mixture and mix well. Stir in the chips, oats, carrots and raisins.
  2. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray; flatten slightly. Bake at 350° for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
