Carrot Chocolate Chip Cookies

"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!"

    At 197 calories for 4 (!) cookies, I use these as a snack on the South Beach Diet Phase III. I substitute Hershey's Special Dark chips for the chocolate. These are yummy, soft and full of healthy ingredients.
