Honey Substitutes

While a honey substitute is possible, used according to the table below, the experience of squeezing those cute little bear containers may be harder to replace. Since your honey has probably not gone bad, you must have run out of honey and need to find a proper substitute for honey. Check the table below to find a honey substitute.

The honey substitutes we recommend are listed below.

Honey Substitutes

But remember, when making substitutions be sure to measure accurately for best results. These substitutions for honey may alter slightly the taste, texture, weight, or moisture content of the finished product. Individual results may vary and not every substitution is for every recipe, you must take into account your other ingredients when making a honey substitute.

Note: Agave Nectar Substitute

* When looking for an Agave Nectar substitute, it is important to remember that Agave has a different chemical make-up than granulated sugar and it will not crystalize like sugar. So, Agave nectar does NOT substitute well for sugar in cooking or baking, but it is an easy substitute for honey and does work very well.
