How to Substitute Honey for Sugar in Muffins


Unlike many sweeteners on the market, honey is rich in a wide variety of nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids. Similar to sugar, honey also offers a quick energy boost. With a few simple adjustments, you can substitute honey for sugar in any muffin recipe, adding sweetness with a nutritional benefit.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking soda
  • Plan to use 2/3 cup of honey for every cup of sugar. Revise the recipe before you begin baking to avoid confusion.

  • Add ½ tsp. of baking soda for every cup of honey you use. This will neutralize the acidity of the honey.

  • Reduce the liquid in your recipe by ¼ cup and reduce the cooking temperature by 25 degrees.
