Coconut Date Breakfast Cookies IMAGE Image by: Coconut Date Breakfast Cookies IMAGE
These wholesome cookies are great not only as an on-the-go breakfast but also as a midday snack. Dates are a source of protein and iron, giving you the energy you need to get through a busy day. And when puréed into paste form, they add natural sweetness and moisture to baked goods. Cost: $0.40 per serving
Spinach and Artichoke Pissaldière Image by: Jodi Pudge
Pissalidière, a flaky pizza-like tart, is traditionally topped with onions, anchovies and, at times, tomatoes. Here, we've swapped out the anchovies for artichokes to make these bites even more crowd-pleasing, and we've added spinach for a stunning pop of colour.
In skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 20 minutes. Stir in vinegar, salt and pepper.
On parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet, unroll 1 sheet of the pastry. Top with half each of the onion mixture, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. On separate baking sheet, repeat with remaining pastry, onion mixture, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Bake, 1 sheet at time, in 425°F oven until edges are golden, 18 to 20 minutes. Cut each sheet into 16 squares.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: If the onion begins to stick to the skillet, add up to a tablespoon of water, a little at a time.
Makes 32 pieces.

Our best-in-class take on this classic treat has a buttery flavour, a chewy centre and a subtly crisp exterior. Oh, and you can tweak the recipe to make them crisp or soft, too.
