Banana Couscous

"I found this recipe in my desperate search for quick and easy breakfasts. Couscous is small bits of semolina pasta but it makes the most tasty breakfast cereal. You can use different fruits, if you wish, or leave out the fruit all together."

  1. I thought this sounded like a great dish for my 10 month old, I used regular milk but found that the mix was too thick upon standing so I had to add more milk..he wasn't all that keen on it either even though he loves bananas...I had to add some vanilla yoghurt to it before he would actually eat it but thanks for posting!
  2. I love couscous and was really curious about this recipe to use it as a breakfast cereal. I always use whole wheat couscous because of its health benefits. The results were interesting, but not something I'll make often. The one thing that I didn't like was the mess it made in my microwave! I got busy doing something else and came back to a sticky overflow. Warning: Watch carefully while cooking in the microwave!! Reviewed for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag Game.
  3. Excellent recipe, I have this a few times per week. Use a diced apple instead of the banana, 1/2 tsp of Maple extract and/or 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract with Splenda to taste for a nice variation. Definate comfort food!


I have always enjoyed cooking and looking for recipes. I have to admit though, until I joined Weight Watchers four years ago I never did much cooking. Since then it has became vital to do my own cooking and I find I am really good at it. I really enjoy trying new ingredients like Quinoa, Millet, Porktenderloin, hoisin sauce, beans, Textured Vegetable Protein among many other new ingredients. My family has started thinking I am a little weird with all the unusual ingredients I have in my pantry. My passions are my 3 nephews, Matthew, Lucas and Charles and my 8 parrots, Guy, Pete, Toby, Daisy, Zeke, Ernie, Max and Lu. They keep me positive when life takes a nose dive.
