Disclosure: I was given free samples of honey to taste and share with my readers. I was not compensated to write this post. 

With a unique and exquisite taste, all-natural honey is a delicious way to flavor everything from sweet breakfast treats and baked goods to savory mains and side dishes.

Containing trace amounts of vitamins and minerals, along with antioxidants {buckwheat honey has been found to contain similar amounts of antioxidants per gram as some fruits and vegetables}, honey is one of the natural sweeteners I always have stocked in my pantry.

Less is More…

As with all sweeteners, though, sweeten subtly, as honey still raises blood sugar levels and will contribute to undesired weight gain when consumed in excess. Truly, less is more when it comes to savoring the delicious flavor of these 32 healthy honey recipes!
