Creamy Moroccan-Spiced Peanut Butter Couscous

Ingredients

Creamy Moroccan-Spiced Peanut Butter Couscous Ingredients - Peanut Butter & Co. The Bee's Knees peanut butter

1 cup canned light coconut milk
4 tablespoons honey
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1 pinch cloves
1/4 cup The Bee’s Knees peanut butter
4 tablespoons golden raisins, divided
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup couscous
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 teaspoons unsweetened, shredded coconut (for garnish)

Directions

1. Whisk together the coconut milk, honey, cinnamon, salt, allspice, ginger, cloves, and peanut butter 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.
