Are you interested in trying out raw honey as an alternative to standard refined sugar in some of your recipes? While raw unfiltered honey still should be used in moderation (after all, it’s still sugar) there are a few raw honey benefits that you can take advantage of by making the change.
But how can you use it? You’ve bought this big bottle of organic raw honey and you’re not sure what to do with it. It’s sitting in your pantry, so what now?
Keep reading for a few of our favorite ways to use raw honey while you’re in the kitchen.
1. Use It in Tea and Coffee
This is the easiest way to incorporate more raw Tupelo honey into your diet. Bonus: it might be tastier than using sugar.
Are you someone who loves their coffee or tea with a hint of sweetness (or, in our case, a lot of sweetness)? Trade your sugar or chemical sugar substitute with raw honey.
Honey gives coffee and tea a unique taste. It’s smooth and complex, making it great for a morning honey latté. If you’re feeling ill, honey and tea are also a great combination when it comes to battling cold and flu symptoms at home.
2. Peanut Butter and Honey
One of our favorite ways to use honey is to combine it with peanut butter. Anywhere that you’d use peanut butter, add a drizzle of honey to sweeten it up.
Make sure that you’re using natural unsweetened peanut butter. The ingredients should consist of peanuts and salt. This peanut butter is the kind that’s smooth and almost liquid at room temperature.
We love peanut butter and honey in sandwiches (with honey acting as a replacement for jelly). When honey touches the bread, it crystallized, giving the sandwich an extra crunch. This combination is also perfect on waffles for breakfast.
3. Breakfast Bowls With Honey
Speaking of breakfast, why not make yourself a filling and healthy breakfast bowl with honey?
Start with granola. You can make your own (also with honey, if you choose) or buy some from the store as long as it isn’t too sweet. Layer that granola over unsweetened yogurt. Use greek yogurt for a protein and probiotic punch.
Add another layer of yogurt over the granola. Drizzle a bit of honey over each layer for a touch of sweetness.
On top, add some of your favorite fruits. We love blueberries and raspberries in our breakfast bowls, but apples and bananas are also cost-effective options.
This is a great breakfast to take on the go with you. It’s the perfect sweet pick-me-up that will keep you full until your next meal.
