The Idea: "I love to bake cookies for my kids. I add ground flaxseeds and uncooked oatmeal to the dry ingredients of the dough (with a little less flour, and the same amount of leavening), and it makes a nice hearty cookie with some extra fiber and omega-3 essential fatty acids." —Holly Clement-Nelson, Denham Springs, Louisiana
Katz Says: "This is standard practice in the Katz house, too. Flaxseeds are the most concentrated plant source of omega-3s, and they're rich in fiber. My wife, Catherine, has also found, through trial and error, that soft wheat (pastry) flour or oat bran flour-both whole grain-make excellent alternatives to white flour in baking.
