The answer is as Rabbeinu Bichaya says: the bentching that the Bnei Yisrael were commanded to perform after eating the mon was a different obligation than the general one. That obligation was specifically to be recited after eating the mon. Thus Moshe did not institute it prior to the falling of the mon, and that is why he instituted it before mattan Torah.Rabbi Raphael Fuchs
