In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
In a large bowl, combine butter, oil, brown sugar, and granulated sugar with an electric mixer. Add egg, carrot puree, and vanilla. Add in the flour mixture, then add in the oats, Raisin Bran cereal, pecans, and dark chocolate chips until fully incorporated. (Dough will be slightly sticky.)
