Jalapeno-Honee Cornbread and a Sweet Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed, and the randomly chosen winner is… Gabby from The Veggie Nook! She’s gonna use her Honee in some tea and then maybe on her granola- sounds yummy to me!

Vegan Jalapeno-Honee Cornbread

Jalapeno-Honee Cornbread

Honey? No… HONEE! A completely vegan alternative to honey, Honee is made from apples and is 100% natural. According to their website, it’s made with “only three all natural ingredients; apple, vegan quality sugar, and lemon juice. There is nothing artificial, no added color and no corn syrup.” Honee is available for purchase online as well as through multiple retailers nationwide.

They suggest using it on pancakes, and really you can use it anyway you might use honey (or agave), like in your tea or oatmeal. It’s sweet, but also a little tart- because it is, after all, made from apples. I love the flavor, it’s unique and has worked wonderfully each time I’ve tried it.  Last week I used it for baking, when I made Japapeno-Honee Cornbread. It worked perfectly! The sweet corn and honee were perfectly balanced out by the crisp little bites of jalapeno. I served these alongside a sort of “tex-mex” tofu/bean/rice/cheese bake, the recipe for which I promise to post soon!

Jalapeno-Honee Cornbread (makes 12 mini-loaves)

Adapted from PPK recipe

Please note: This recipe was baked at high-altitude. Also, I used a mini-loaf pan, if you use a muffin pan the final number will come out differently.


  • 1 cup flour, plus 2 Tablespoons
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Bee Free Honee
  • 2 Tablespoons soy yogurt
  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 2 Tablespoons minced jalapeno
  • Non-stick spray


  1. Preheat oven to 400 and spray mini-loaf pans with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients, and in a separate bowl mix everything else except for the corn and jalapenos. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry, then gently stir in the corn and jalapeno. Don’t overmix.
  3. Fill the pans to about 2/3 full and bake for 20-25 minutes. Depending on your altitude, you might need to add a few more minutes at the end. You’ll know they’re done with they pass the toothpick test 🙂 Serve with vegan butter!

    That sounds like a great product! Not sure if you’d send it over to the UK but thought I would comment anyway 🙂 I’d use it in my overnight oats! I usually use a little bit of maple syrup but I like the idea of apple honey.

  • sarahhosick September 6, 2012, 11:47 am

    I would love to try the Honee either in my own cornbread recipe or simply on a slice of toast with some peanut butter!

  • Yvonne September 6, 2012, 1:10 pm

    Simply drizzled on my bread which I previously smeared with tahini or almond butter.

  • thecrueltyfreereview September 6, 2012, 8:20 pm

    I’ve been eating a lot of toasted peanut butter and agave sandwiches lately (don’t ask why; I don’t know myself) but I would love to try Honee in place of the agave!

    This is absolutely delicious! I’ve missed honey and sometimes substituting maple syrup for it in recipes is just not the same. I was really surprised this tasted as much like honey as it does, with a hint of apple. How did they do that?

  • Tt in nyc September 11, 2012, 8:58 pm

    I would use honee on toast!

    • Tt in nyc September 11, 2012, 8:59 pm

      Liked TWV on facebook! (terri)

  • Tammy September 12, 2012, 12:14 pm

    The Options Are Endless!!! I would like to add it my version of corn bread, with honey butter, or honey butter for great yeast rolls, to many of our green smoothies, a lot of ideas are coming to mind!!
    I would so love to try this…

  • greenbunnie September 29, 2012, 11:36 am

    This looks sooo good!
