Raw Honey Recipes – Cooking With Raw Honey
Many people are turning to honey as part of a raw food diet. It’s a delicious treat that works well in a variety of different dishes, but if you’re not quite sure where to start adding raw honey to your diet, you may be a little overwhelmed. What are some healthy recipes with raw honey that you can begin adding to your weekly menu? This quick guide can help.
A Quick Note About Raw Honey
As you begin to choose the right dishes for your menu, it’s important to note that raw honey isn’t typically the kind you pick up off the shelf at the grocery store. Usually, that’s commercially produced honey or “regular” honey as some people call it. Raw honey is often produced on a much smaller scale by beekeepers across the world.
Raw honey is simply pulled right off the honeycomb at a bee farm. Usually, it’s lightly filtered to remove beeswax and pieces of dead bees, then bottled as is. Commercially produced honey, though, goes through a number of other steps before it reaches your kitchen. In addition to being more heavily filtered, it’s usually pasteurized, or heated to a high temperature.
Unfortunately, this changes the flavor of the honey entirely, and it takes away much of its original nutritional value. If you’re looking for true raw honey, you’ll want to look for an option that has not been pasteurized and has only been lightly filtered to use in these recipes.
A Few Healthy Recipes to Consider
Raw honey can be used in place of many other sweetener options in any recipe. If you’re looking for something new, though, try it in one of these great options.

Challah Bread Recipe
This deep-gold, light-textured bread is traditionally served on the Jewish Sabbath and other holidays. The dough is wonderfully smooth and supple, making it an ideal candidate for braiding. The simplest way to go is a three-strand braid; but feel free to try the slightly more complex four-strand braid, or even a six-strand braid, which makes a striking presentation.
Makes 2 challah bread
- 1 ¼ cups warm water
- 2 tbs dry yeast
- ½ cup honey
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup oil
- 1 tbs salt
- 4 ½ cups bread flour
- 1 egg yolk with a drop of honey to brush the bread
- Sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, or everything bagel for topping
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Combine the warm water, yeast, and honey, mix and let stand for 2 minutes to activate the yeast.
- Add the 2 eggs, oil, salt, and some of the flour, mix well.
- Add the remaining flour mixing after every cup.
- Knead until dough forms, the dough should not be sticky but malleable.
- Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl large enough for your dough to double in size, brush the dough with oil
- Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let it rise until doubles in size, 1-2 hours. I always leave the bowl with the dough to rise in top of my range as it’s already hot.
- Prepare 2 pans, line them with parchment paper, and set them aside.
- Divide the dough into 6, shape them into long strands and braid 2 pieces of bread in 3 stands each. Transfer them into the pans.
- Let them rise for another 20 minutes
- Brush them with the egg yolk and honey mixture. Sprinkle them with the topping of your choice (sesame seeds, poppy seeds, etc)
- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
