September is National Honey Month!
Over the past few months, while trying to eat clean and eliminate things like high fructose corn syrups and processed syrups, honey has moved in as one of our primary substitutes, along with agave nectar and 100% maple syrup.
And we’ve all fallen in love with honey. Right off the top of my head, I can list at least 5 ways to use honey that we love and do almost daily.
- Instead of syrup, honey and peanut butter on a waffle (with no preservatives).
- We use it in our homemade granola bars and peanut butter energy bites.
- We use it as a sweetener in greek yogurt (yum!)
- We pair it up with nuts and berries for oatmeal.
- Honey and peanut butter sandwiches for the kids’ lunches (sometimes we Elvis it up and add sliced banana too) and my favorite for race day: honey and peanut butter on a 1/2 of a whole wheat bagel as my pre-race breakfast. Which I’m eating right now just because typing that made me hungry.
But in honor of honey month (and plus because we’re seriously reusing all our same old honey recipes and need more variety!) I’m playing with honey recipes all month long. And whilst playing, I’ve also found a million other uses for honey (I might be slightly exaggerating with the million) so I’m going to share those with you too every week in September.
I’m starting with Peanut Butter Honey Play Dough! Because it’s just fun. And also you can sneak a bite here and there. It’s simple and an easy way to have a fun afternoon with the kiddos. This recipe is courtesy of the honey people.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
So hang out with me this month and see what I come up with.
