The actual recipe refers to it as a "Single Lady Peanut Butter Cookie," but screw that. It's been rechristened.

5. Lasagna Toast

DISCLAIMER: This is kind of cheating because while it only needs 8 to 10 minutes to bake, you'll need around 15 in prep time as well. Still, this recipe had to make the list because it's brilliant and so much quicker than real lasagna.

This will take much longer than 15 minutes to actually cook, but the effort component could be easily accomplished in 5. Slice your preferred fruits thin, set your toaster oven to the lowest temperature, and let them bake for several hours or until fully dehydrated.

An example using apples here.
