If you've been looking for all natural sweeteners - this is one you should definitely try!

We received Bee Free Honee to review, and also give some away. So far, everyone in the NTH Review Group has raved over how delicious this product is, and we agree with them!

Bee Free Honee isn't honey at all. In fact, it's made from apples and has nothing to do with bees at all! It's an all natural, plant based "honey."

Bee Free Honee is "honey", made from apples rather than by bees in Minnesota. It's an all natural sweetener that can be used anywhere, on anything or in any recipe that you would normally use regular honey in.

The simple ingredients make for a great, subtle and sweet apple flavor:
apple juice concentrate, water, beet sugar, and lemon juice.

Bee Free Honee is great for: 
Small children, as there is no fear of Botulism
Those who are allergic to traditional honey
Foodies looking for a new flavor
and also for people who are looking for stable pricing against the fluctuating costs of traditional honey due to the decline of the bee population.

If you visit their webpage (linked under the image at the top of the post) there's a recipe section that rotates frequently. This is the current one; and I must try it!!

"Apple Honey" Granola

½ cup Bee Free Honee
1 cup Brown Sugar
½ cup Water
4 tablespoons Vegetable Oil or Butter
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla
1 teaspoon Salt 
2 cups nuts.
Suggestions are: Almonds, Pecans, and
1 cup Shredded Coconut
4 cups oats, not instant
Cinnamon to taste
Pinch of Nutmeg, fresh grated
¼ cup Wheat Germ
¼ cup Bran
2 tablespoons Flax Seed (and/or Sesame seed)
1 Cup Currants

Place in a small pot, heat honee, brown
sugar, water and oil or butter until the sugar
dissolves.  Take the mixture off the heat and
add the vanilla and salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Toast the
nuts and coconut until fragrant.

Mix the oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat germ,
bran, flax seed, and toasted nuts together.
Pour the liquid on top and mix thoroughly.
Spread the mixture on to two cookie sheets
that has been brushed with oil.

Bake at 350 degrees, tossing the mixture every
15-20 min.  Once it is toasty brown, take out of
the oven and mix the currants in.  Toss 
occasionally as it cools to break it up.  Store in
an air tight container.

We use Bee Free Honee on everything in The Hammer house! The girls love it spread on toast in the morning, I really enjoy it mixed into my oatmeal and Ken has recently found out that Bee Free Honee is the perfect sweetener in his Pomegranate Raspberry iced tea that he brews.
