Vegan Honee Butter

I loved honey butter on muffins, scones, and biscuits before I was vegan, and I thought I would just have to make do without it. Then, I made my own vegan honee and honee butter is back in my life! It is very easy to make if you follow these three rules:

  • Use room temperature vegan butter and honee.
  • Use equal weights of vegan butter and honee.
  • Mix the honee in gradually.

I used 113 g (1 stick) of vegan butter and 113 g (1/3 cup) of honee, which makes 8 oz (1 cup) of honee butter. You can make less or more than that as long as you use equal weights of the two ingredients.

You can see that the vegan butter is quite soft. You do not want it melty at all, so let it come to room temperature naturally and do not use the microwave! (If you decide to ignore that direction, be sure to remove the foil wrapper and only heat for about 20 to 30 seconds on 40% power.)

Beat on medium speed until the vegan butter is light and fluffy and no chunks remain. Any solid bits now will probably still be there in your finished honee butter, so this is the step that determines the final texture:

Get your honee ready:

Add about 1/3 of the honee and beat it in:

Add half of the remaining honee, and beat again until it is all mixed together:

Add the rest of the honee and mix again. There should be no separation or curdled appearance if you followed the rules above. If your vegan butter or honee were too cold and your mixture separates, don’t give up. Keep beating until it comes together, which could take up to ten minutes.

Once the honee and vegan butter are thoroughly blended together, turn the speed up to high, and whip for two minutes:

Your honee butter should look like this:

Pack your honee butter into a tub, cover tightly, and store in the fridge.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 113 g (1 stick or 8 TBS) Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
  • 113 g (1/3 c) Vegan Honee

Instructions

  1. Bring your vegan butter and honee to room temperature.

  2. Add the softened vegan butter to a mixing bowl, and beat on medium speed until the vegan butter is light and fluffy with no chunks remaining. Any solid bits now will probably still be there in your finished honee butter, so this is the step that determines the final texture.

  3. Add about 1/3 of the honee and beat it in until you have a uniform mixture.

  4. Add half of the remaining honee, and beat again until it is all mixed together.

  5. Add the rest of the honee and mix again. There should be no separation or curdled appearance if you followed the keys above. If your vegan butter or honee were too cold and your mixture separates, don’t give up. Keep beating until it comes together, which could take up to ten minutes.

  6. Once the honee and vegan butter are thoroughly blended together, turn the speed up to high, and whip for two minutes.

  7. Pack your honee butter into a tub, cover tightly, and store in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

You can use any vegan butter to make this recipe. I recommend using a stick variety, however, as the tub kinds are softer and your honee butter will not be as firm with tub spreads.
