Easy Breakfast Bento

Breakfast on the go!
Sometimes you need a quick breakfast (or lunch) on the go. I made this Easy Breakfast Bento for Eliana the other day. Packed in EasyLunchboxes she had breakfast for lunch! For this lunch I took a homemade waffle from my freezer stash and put this together quickly. 

Packed in the main compartment she had Apple Cinnamon Waffle Sticks. I cut one Apple Cinnamon waffle into four strips so she could easily dip them in her syrup, which was packed in a mini dipper.  

In a separate mini dipper I put some Enjoy Life Foods Very Berry Granola for her to pour on top of her vanilla yogurt.  This is Eliana's favorite granola at the moment! All Enjoy Life Foods are allergy friendly--top 8 allergen free and made in a top 8 allergen free facility-- I LOVE that!  Eliana loves to pour the granola over the yogurt herself and keeping them separate prevents the granola from getting soggy over time -- so win win situation here :) 

I also packed her some fruit below the yogurt.  In a flower silicone cup I put some sliced grapes and some clementine pieces.

She had some Horizon Organic chocolate milk to drink and we were good to go!

Here is a picture so you can see it all packed up and ready to go: 
Lids on the mini dippers and I placed a spoon inside for the yogurt.

Cutting up the waffle makes it sooo much more fun according to Eliana :) To make waffle sticks I put my frozen waffles through one round on "defrost" in the toaster, cut them, and then finish the reheating in the microwave. If the waffle is still a little frozen you can cut the waffle sticks easier than if the waffle is thoroughly reheated :)

This took literally less than 10 minutes to put together. 
Even counting the time to get the waffle out of the freezer and heat it up. 

SO easy and perfect for on the go! :)

  1. Mmm, looks yummy! Since my spouse's bentos all turn into breakfast, I'm thinking I should borrow some of these ideas and make them more ... breakfasty.

    1. Thank you! Breakfasty bentos sound delicious! :) I will be making breakfast bentos more for Eliana since she loved it so much :)

  2. We love breakfast for lunch! Yum! Thanks for linking up to Switch It Up Sandwich Linky!

  3. Yum! Looks delish! It's so fun to switch it up sometimes!

  4. Do you have a recipe for the apple cinnamon waffles or are they store-bought?

    1. I haven't posted a recipe, but what I did was add chopped apples (tossed in cinnamon), applesauce and some extra cinnamon (because we love cinnamon) to our favorite homemade waffle mix! You could do the same with a store bought mix too! Just add on those ingredients to the waffle mix instructions :)


I ♥ comments! Thanks for leaving one! :)
