1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup (1 small jar) strained carrot baby food

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup quick cook rolled oats

1/2 cup bran cereal flakes

1/3 cup raisins

1/3 cup walnut pieces, lightly toasted in a dry skillet for 2 minutes, until fragrant and chopped

Place rack in center of oven and preheat oven to 350 F.
Whisk together flours, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
Combine butter, oil and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on high speed, scraping down sides until sugars have dissolved and mixture is light in color, about 1 minute.
Add egg, carrot puree and vanilla and beat an additional 30 seconds.
Add flour mixture and beat an additional 30 seconds.
Add oats, flakes, raisins and walnuts and mix over low speed just until incorporated.
Dough will be slightly sticky and less cohesive than traditional cookie dough.
