They are so easy to prepare, and if you’re like us and love batch cooking you can even freeze them. What could be easier than popping a couple in the fridge overnight to defrost then grabbing them in the morning for a quick and easy breakfast? You could even take them to work with a handful of salad for a totally syn free lunch!
We used Wholewheat Giant Cous Cous for ours. However, there’s nothing to stop you using normal giant cous cous, regular cous cous or you could even use Quinoa if you prefer.
For a vegetarian variation of these Syn Free Cous Cous Breakfast Cups why not try adding some sliced mushrooms, diced onion, sweetcorn or diced courgette instead of the ham.
Another good thing about these Syn Free Cous Cous Breakfast Cups is you can use pretty much whatever veg or meat you want. It’s a great way to use up those leftovers. And if you want to add some of your HEA why not sprinkle on a bit of cheese?
I find that these Syn Free Cous Cous Breakfast Cups tend to stick if you use a regular muffin tin. So you’ll probably find it easier with a silicone muffin tray. We use the 12 cup mould in this set from Amazon.
And as a bonus you can use the mini muffin mould to make some of our mini cake and canape recipes. These silicone moulds are so easy to use, and super easy to clean.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Rapeseed or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Cous Cous Breakfast Cups recipe.
