10 Honey Sweetened Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Honey is nature's choice to sweeten up any dish, to keep your baked goods moist and flavorful, and to provide an energy boost at work or during exercise. Honey is also easy to work with. When baking, replace each cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of honey, lower the oven temperature 25 degrees Fahrenheit, and reduce liquids about 2 tablespoons for each cup of honey you use. When used in moderation, honey is a great way to enhance your cooking and achieve your personal health goals. Try these 10 honey sweetened recipes from Sparkpeople today!

I use honey mostly in baking (or in tea) so will definitely try the bread recipes.

There's something about not giving honey to infants, though. Can't remember why. Report

I love to cook with honey. I like to fry bonless skinless chicken breasts in a little bit of olive oil with yellow mustard and honey. Report
I don't like artificial sweeteners or granulated sugar. I use Honey to sweeten everything from baking goodies to yogurts, even when a recipe calls for sugar, I substitute with Honey or Maple Syrup! ☺ Report
