Blackberry Bento Box Lunch
For the PBJ Rolls
2 slices of bread
2 tablespoons of blackberry jam - homemade or store bought
2 tablespoons of peanut, sunflower or other nut butter of your choice
2 Blackberry Baked Oatmeal Muffins
1 container of blackberry yogurt, store bought or plain greek yogurt swirled with our Berry Purée
Slices of cucumber
Slices of red pepper
For the Blackberry Baked Oatmeal
Bake according to Blackberry Baked Oatmeal instructions. These muffins keep well in the freezer and can be heated up or gently thawed for maximum enjoyment.
For the PBJ Rolls
Take two slices of break and use a rolling pin or glass bottle to flatten the bread as much as possible. Cut off crusts.
On one slice, spread peanut butter or nut butter of your choice evenly.
On the second slice, spread blackberry jam evenly, leaving about 1″ of space at one edge of the slice.
Place the peanut butter slice on top of the jam slice, offset, leaving the 1″ of jam-free bread exposed, both filling sides facing up. Roll tightly away from you and press down gently when finished to seal the edges. Slice into 2-3 rolls, depending on how tall your bento box is.
To Assemble the Blackberry Bento Box
Place your selection of fruit and veggies in one section of your bento box.
Place the yogurt in a separate container with a lid. Place yogurt container in bento box and fill remaining space with pretzels.
Place Blackberry Baked Oatmeal muffins and the PBJ rolls in the last section. Keep cool and enjoy when ready!
