Discover 6 alternative sources to honey


In my previous blog, I had clearly explained why vegans say no to a jar of honey. You know that there are environmental hazards in destroying bees. Now, you would also want to ditch your jar of honey. Do you think there are no other alternatives to honey? You want to enjoy honey cakes, cookies, and ice creams. I have discovered 6 healthy plant-based alternatives to honey. Let me narrow them down for you one by one:

Agave Nectar

Agave Honey is extracted from the agave fruit that typically grows in tropical forests or tree-dense rainforests. The pulp from the fruit is extracted into bottles of plant-based honey. Trust me on this. Agave Nectar tastes exactly like honey. You can mimic your honey recipes using this plant-based alternative. 

Apple honey

You can extract honey by squeezing out apples. This is a beautiful plant-based alternative to honey, as a matter of fact. Do you know who discovered apple honey? It was done by Katie Sanchez way back in 1999. She was trying to create a recipe for making apple jelly and the recipe went awry. The resultant is what bloomed or gave rise to apple honey. Of course, this is a spot-on alternative to honey-combining recipes. 

Maple syrup

If you look at it, maple syrup tastes a little different as compared to honey. But, you can use this ingredient that calls for the usage of honey. You can use the ingredient while baking your pastries or cookies. You can re-create sauces using this plant-based alternative to honey in an effortless manner. Instead of using honey for your beauty scrubs, you can use maple syrup indeed.

Brown rice syrup

Brown rice syrup is available in most grocery stores across the US or the UK. This is a syrup that is not as sweet as honey. But, this is a syrup that contains vital minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, and antioxidants our body typically needs. You can use brown rice syrup for recipes in case you want to cut down on your sugar intake. You can use it for your baking recipes but a little more as compared to honey to meet out the taste your sweet-tooth delicacy would need.  

Barley syrup

This is a syrup that has a malty taste attributed to the presence of barley. And just like brown-rice syrup, this is also an ingredient that is less sweet as compared to your real-time honey. You can make exciting recipes using barley syrup as well. These include cookie bars, granola bars, or cereal-enriched protein bars. 

Sorghum Syrup

Sorghum syrup is extracted from the sorghum plant, as a matter of fact. This is a crop that grows in hot places. Also, this is a crop that is deemed a draught-tolerant crop. In other words, the crop can survive even in typical draught-like environmental conditions. Again, this is an ingredient that replaces corn to be used as a versatile biofuel. The ingredient seems to be finding its place on kitchen shelves too. Again, sorghum syrup is as sweet as honey. Therefore, you can use the syrup in recipes in a similar proportion as you do for a honey-based recipe. 


Ditch honey and save bees from dying. You have attractive plant-based alternatives to replace honey in quite a number of recipes. So, what is your alternative going to be? Place your feedback in the Comment Section.
