One of the hardest parts of becoming a vegan is finding alternatives to your past favorite non-vegan foods.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth for honey and are looking for alternatives, we’ve got you covered. In this post, we’ve included recipes for honey alternatives. We’ve also included popular dishes/desserts typically made with honey. Before we jump into the recipes, we have to discuss a controversial topic.

Is honey vegan?

A vegan is defined as a person that does not eat or use animal products or byproducts. This means that honey, as an animal byproduct, is not classified as vegan. While honey production is moving into more sustainable practices in some regions, in current trends, reproduction of bees, trapping bees and harvesting honey are not always ethical in commercial farming.

Bees can be injured and killed during the honey-making process, making it pretty clear that honey isn’t vegan. Having said that, we do support ethical beekeeping and well being of bees everywhere. Bees are absolutely critical for the worlds food supply, especially for vegans.

While the debate seems to rage back and forth, if something sweet and sticky is what you’re after, you can get your hands in another non-animal jar.
