I was excited to try these tiny crystals as my husband and I use honey pretty much every single day and it does get quite messy and can usually be found all over our counter tops.
Nektar Naturals Fine Foods sent me the bottle and measuring spoon gift pack in exchange for my honest review. They are also offering to send a bottle of Nektar Honey Crystals to one lucky winner – see below!
Before we get into the giveaway though, I’d like to share with you the first recipe I tried once I receive my bottle. I got this recipe right off their website. You can see more recipes here: Nektar Naturals Recipes
CINNAMON RAISIN BREAKFAST QUINOA
1 cup quinoa, rinsed well and drained well
2 cups of low-fat milk, plus more for serving
3 packets of Nektar Honey Crystals (3 teaspoons)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for serving
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
Place quinoa, milk, Nektar Honey Crystals, cinnamon and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir a few times during cooking.
Let stand about 5 minutes and serve with additional mild, cinnamon, walnuts and raisins.
What I like about these honey crystals is the convenience and sweet taste. You can change up recipes with equal parts. If the recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, you could use 1 cup of honey crystals. One tablespoon of sugar = One tablespoon of honey crystals, etc. I still prefer the taste of messy, sticky, honey on some things but when it comes to replacing sugar while baking or adding to hot or cold beverages, especially when out and about, these crystals are easy and, in my opinion, better than grabbing a packet of artificial sugar.
You can get Nektar Honey Crystals in a jar as shown here or in individual packages. This product is conveniently sold at Walmart. You can even order online from at walmart.com!! You can also check their website for other distributors as well. Sold Here
