Peanut Butter Bento

Peanut Butter is the star of this bento. I packed my new Quad bento with Peanut Butter, and yummy things to dip into said peanut butter. Check it out!
  • Celery (2 Stalks cut into 9ths)
  • Apple (Medium Apple sliced)
  • Pretzel Sticks (30 Snyder's Gluten Free Pretzels)
  • Trail Mix (1 Tbsp each: Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Sliced Almonds, Whole O's gf cereal, gf Rice Krispies)
  • Raisins (Mini Box)
  • Peanut Butter (2 Tbsp Teddie Chunky Peanut Butter with Flaxseed)
Yum!, I love these kind of bentos because I love peanut Butter, and I love snacks of some kind of fruit/veggie/etc and some kind of dip. First I dumped the raisins into the peanut butter and mixed it around, then I was dipping the celery/apple/pretzels into the peanut butter and then dipping that into the trail mix. It was sooooo gooood. It's a lot higher calories then I would usually eat for one meal, but that is because I woke up late today and this is both my breakfast and my lunch.
I don't recommend eating all of this as a snack unless you are sharing the portions with at least one other person.


  1. Why do you always make everything look SO darned tasty and fun to eat?

    1. Well, because that's what bentos are all about. lol

  2. Love the little cat food picks. Good variety of snacks!

  3. I laughed when I saw you describe cutting the celery into 9ths--seems very precise--but you mean thirds lengthwise and thirds crosswise, right? I cut my celery sticks that way, too--I was never a fan of celery "boats."

    1. Yes, I didn't feel like explaining how I cut the celery, so I figured just putting 9th up people would be able to figure it out. lol
      I only like celery 'boats' if I am filling them with peanut butter (like ant's on a log), but if I am dipping them into something the boats just seem too large.
