So, I took a recipe that I have used and tweaked it. I used all whole wheat flour. I cut back on the sugars, eliminated the raisins, added some chocolate chips and some carrots, and voila, this cookie was baked. And, they turned out good. not too cakey, but, just a touch raised. and, chewy. I also really liked the flavor of the whole wheat and the carrots. This one is a keeper.
