Bunny Bento!



This was my girl's lunch today.  A homemade bunny bun, organic bunny crackers, hardboiled egg in a bunny face shape (if you can see it very well), carrots, and sugar free bunny jello.  As I arranged the jello I thought it was all fancy you could see both little bunnies, but now that I look at it in the picture... well...  LOL.  Either way it's fun and the girls both were gathered around me as I made their lunches and made sure that I knew that I should make this lunch again come Easter time.

Bunny Buns


Found a Bunny Buns recipe and thought it was adorable.  Decided those needed to go into a lunch box one day and seeing this challenge made me remember!  

I didn't have any orange on hand to make them orange rolls, so just went ahead and made them regular rolls.
Now I made an insanely giant batch and made bunny buns, regular rolls, and two loaves of bread, so if you don't want to be baking all afternoon half or third or whatever this recipe.

3 3/4 cup hot water
4 cups whole wheat flour (I used freshly ground) + about 4 cups all purpose later (or use 100% whole wheat)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp yeast
1/4 cup gluten flour
1 1/2 tbsp salt

In heavy duty mixing bowl (like a bosch mixer) combine water, wheat flour, butter, sugar, milk, oats.  Mix on low for 4 minutes, then add yeast, gluten flour, and salt.  Gradually add enough all purpose flour until you see the bottom on the bowl when it's mixing.  Knead for 10 minutes on medium until the dough is soft and elastic.  Turn dough onto a lightly oiled counter, and turn a few times.  Cover and allow to rest 1/2 hour.  Then shape loaves/buns and let double in size.  Turn oven to 350* and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes for rolls or 45 for loaves.  Cool in pan 15 minutes.


Happy Bento-ing!

what a clever way to get children (and probably most adults! Cheesy) to eat better!

Love how you used a cute theme...and using cupcake wrappers to hold some of the food is a great idea!
