Honey is a pretty easy swap for vegans. There’s sugar, maple syrup, agave, and more! While vegan alternatives may not have the exact same taste, they still do the same job and taste delicious. If you’re looking for ways to veganize your favorite honey-sweetened or flavored treats, you’ve found the right place! These vegan honey recipes taste just as good, if not better, than their non-vegan counterparts. Give them a try!

4. Spicy Honey Mustard

Who wants some honey mustard?!? *raises hand* I ALWAYS want honey mustard. Since becoming vegan I generally bring my own or go without because, as the name implies, “honey” is in the ingredient list. This Spicy Honey Mustard by Jennifer Harmon could technically be called Spicy Brown Rice Syrup Mustard, but that really doesn’t have much of a ring to it. I whip one of these batches up quite often, although it depends on my mood whether I mix in the spicy seasonings or not. This particular recipe is my favorite.

Thick, sweet, tangy, zesty, and most importantly, delicious!

9. Salted Honeycomb

Honeycomb candy, unlike the honeycomb we associate with bees, is essentially an aerated hard caramel. It is a staple in England, but I could only find it in the imported sections of select stores in the US. Fortunately, it is so simple to make at home. It is light and crunchy and reminiscent of burnt caramel in flavor. The magic comes from baking soda, which instantly foams when it is added and creates air pockets as it sets in the sugar. This recipe calls for organic agave instead of corn syrup and a sprinkling of salt to bring out the flavor and balance the sweetness. Feel free to play with other liquid sweeteners like maple syrup or sorghum; both add flavor and are all-natural and vegan friendly. I use honeycomb in ice cream, on ice cream, or as a snack all on its own. Beware: this Salted Honeycomb by Incredible Vegan Ice Cream, Deena Jalal is addictively good.
