Homemade VEGAN Apple Honey

Howdy everyone! Welcome to Oatmeal With A Fork!

I’m definitely stoked for this month! As I’ve said many a time, this is definitely my favorite time of year! Let’s get right into some food!

Whole wheat english muffins with Vegan Apple Honey (recipe at end of post) have been on the agenda for morning snacks….

I’ve always felt bad that vegans can’t have honey….it’s so delicious and wonderful! I’m hoping this might be an easy alternative!

I’ve been eating a lot of spaghetti squash lately. This one I topped with my Easy Spicy Marinara Sauce and grated goat cheddar….

Sorry for the messy picture! I was in a hurry to eat! :-)

This individual almond butter fudge made its way into my mouth for an afternoon snack…

….while this quinoa and broccoli casserole was my dinner!

This was soooooo tasty! I just sort of threw some stuff together I had in the fridge, and it turned out fantastic!

For dessert, my daughters and I partook of the ubiquitous banana soft serve…..

….Jadie topped hers with a chocolate sauce and I added some carob powder to mine (I have a serious fixation on carob lately)…..some Pumpkin Fudge also made its way into our bellies…..

…you guys have to try out this recipe!

Another recipe you have to try is this Vegan Apple Honey….

…it’s so easy and all you need is one ingredient!

VEGAN APPLE HONEY (NO bees harmed)

Inspired by this recipe

2 c. 100% organic apple juice

Heat a shallow pan over medium heat. Add juice. Bring to a boil; lower to a simmer and continue cooking until the juice has reduced to syrup consistency (about 45 minutes to one hour). Allow it to cool before using. This should be kept in a clean glass jar in the fridge, and warmed a bit before using.

Devil’s Food Cake

Raw Oreos

And now to get you in the spirit of the season…


What’s your favorite way to use honey?

What are you planning on dressing up as for Halloween?

My husband and I thought it would be fun to be a dead bride and groom….or a dead gangster pair….or……something dead. Yes, we’re a bit morbid. :-)

    I’m intrigued by this honey recipe! I just got a bottle of Bee Free Honee to try which is also made with apples so I’d love to see your version!

      I’ve heard of the Bee Free, but I’m not sure how it would compare…I imagine my version would be cheaper though! :-)

    Alright so I’m just going to come out and say this, reading your blog just MADE my week. I can’t have gluten, dairy or soy, so I’ve been eating paleo. And normally when I see yummy treats on WIAW, I can’t have them. But I thought, let me just look at the fudge recipe. I can eat it!! Those will be happening in my house sometime this month along with the raw brownies. You are awesome.

    Yummy eats! That vegan apple honey sounds really good! My favorite ways to use honey are in yogurt and oatmeal and as a topping for bread.

    That apple juice honey is so creative! I can’t wait to try it! I want to give it a shot with other juices too… I just got some pineapple juice from Trader Joe’s and it bet that would make a delicious “pineapple honey.”

      Thanks Lauren! Yeah, I’ve thought of doing it with orange juice as well. Pineapple sounds really good too!

    The Apple Honey looks AMAZING! THANKS a bunch for the idea!!! Do you have a horrible time cleaning the saucepan afterwards? How do you reheat the honey before serving? Do you just remove the bit you’d like and warm it on the stove?

    • Lauren January 30, 2013 at 7:55 pm Reply

      Thanks so much Brittany! I’ve not had a tough time with the pan. I usually don’t reheat it, I just keep it in a bowl on the counter and use it in place of honey. If you wanted to reheat it, I’d just put it in a non-stick skillet and warm it a bit that way. I hope you enjoy it! :)
