September is National Honey Month and we are obsessed! You can enjoy honey by itself, slather it on toast or sweeten tea – the possibilities are endless. So let’s thank the bees for giving us honey by showing off some of our favorite honey-indulging recipes.

A delicious veggie recipe by Creative Culinary gives your honey fix in 25 minutes. Perfect as a side dish, the honey roasted carrots are sweet with a touch of savory from rosemary and thyme. Or enjoy this dish by itself for all that honey-carroty goodness.
Baked Honey BBQ Popcorn Chicken by Sally’s Baking Addiction
What do you get when you mix honey and BBQ sauce? Deliciousness, that’s what. This popcorn chicken recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction is great for football games or parties. Crunchy and saucy, your guests will be begging for the recipe! We also love how the chicken is baked – a healthier alternative to frying.
Cinnamon Honey Butter by The Food Charlatan
Cinnamon Honey Butter. Say it with us. Cinnamon. Honey. Butter. It just sounds divine! Creamy and smooth, the honey and cinnamon complement each other perfectly to create a spread that will have your mouth watering. We recommend making this in batches because you just won’t be able to stop. We also really like the idea of making it in mason jars and giving away as gifts.
Honey Whole Wheat Bread by Tastes Better From Scratch
We found the mate to the cinnamon honey butter. Homemade bread is warm, inviting and scrumptious. Adding honey to that trifecta is just brilliant. Enjoy the honey whole wheat bread in the mornings or along aside a cup of tea. Slather on that cinnamon honey butter and you have honey heaven. For easy storage and to enjoy later, you can always freeze the bread.
Honey Strawberry Lemonade by Show Me the Yummy
Just because summer is winding down doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying fresh and light drinks. The honey acts as a natural sweetener while giving its own flavor spin to the drink. The honey in this recipe just seems right with strawberries and lemonade. Sip on your lemonade while reading a book or make ahead for parties.
