Creamy Moroccan-Spiced Peanut Butter Couscous

Creamy Moroccan-Spiced Peanut Butter Couscous

Couscous might not be the first thing you would typically think of when it comes to breakfast, but this dish definitely changes that. This creamy porridge-like bowl of couscous is the perfect way to switch up your usual breakfast routine. It’s hearty like a bowl of oats, but is uniquely scented with warm spices and flavored with Peanut Butter & Co. Bee's Knees, coconut, and vanilla.

  • Yield:4 servings
  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:7 minutes
  • Total Time:12 minutes


1 cup canned light coconut milk 

4 tbsp. honey 

3/4 tsp. cinnamon 

1/2 tsp. coarse salt 

1/8 tsp. allspice 

1/8 tsp. ginger 

1 pinch cloves 

1/4 cup Peanut Butter The Bee's Knees

4 tbsp. golden raisins, divided 

1 1/2 cups water 

1 cup couscous 

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 

4 tsp. unsweetened, shredded coconut (for garnish) 


  1. Whisk together the coconut milk, honey, cinnamon, salt, allspice, ginger, cloves, and Peanut Butter & Co. The Bee's Knees in a medium bowl until smooth. Measure out 4 teaspoons of raisins and set aside for garnish. 

  2. Add the coconut milk mixture in a medium saucepan along with the water, raisins (except the raisins reserved for garnish), and couscous. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Once it reaches a simmer, the couscous should be porridge-like in consistency; if not, simmer until it is (this should take less than 1 minute), stirring constantly. Once the couscous is porridge-like, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into 4 serving bowls and top each with 1 teaspoon raisins and 1 teaspoon coconut; serve hot.
