I don't need much of an excuse to bake cookies, so if they're delicious AND healthy for the brain, fantastic! Thinkfood Cookbook (coming out next month) will include recipes from 50 food bloggers around the world, all featuring "brain-healthy" ingredients. Genius! I already signed up for the free Recipe a Week...

1/4 cup soy milk (can substitute regular milk)

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
