Bento #3

This bento is another throw-it-together in five minutes one. I actually didn't have any tamagoyaki in the freezer, so I did make that tonight--however, it is easy to make and only took 5 extra minutes. It was a one-egg tamagoyaki, so it is not very large. That is perfect for bento: small and cute!

Here we have SnapeaCrisps, chicken nuggets, soy-free tamagoyaki, vanilla coconut yogurt with organic casein-free chocolate sprinkles, two homemade peanut butter cookies, coconut chocolate milk, veggie fillers, and inside the yellow cup is an organic gummy penguin with a squishy center (weird, I know).

This is a more sugar-laden bento, since there is sugar in the yogurt, cookies, penguin, and tamagoyaki. You could substitute the vanilla yogurt with plain and use stevia instead. Stevia could also be used to make tamagoyaki. You could omit the penguin and add another nugget instead, and the cookies were just for fun!

And now for a recipe: peanut butter cookies!

1 cup nut/seed butter
1 cup sugar (whatever kind your child tolerates)
1 egg (or egg substitute)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (GF)

Egg and sugar together, add butter and beat again, then add vanilla and mix.

Make whatever size cookies you want, then bake at 350 for 5-15 minutes (less for tiny cookies, more for big ones).

They will be flimsy, so let them cool in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Put it together...

Add the PECS food card...


Another cute bento for my cute boy!
