Tell us about your recipe
Honey is a staple in our home. Practically ever recipe we make has honey in it. We stopped using sugar to sweeten our recipes years ago. Everyone in my family is very creative in the kitchen and we make up or at least 'modify' most of the recipes we make. I created these honey apple bars for my dad's birthday. We both like graham crackers, and I have used them in recipes before. Cream cheese frosting is a favorite in my family. Of course, it's sweetened with honey. And don't forget that honey is a healthy alternative to other sweeteners!
