Golden Blossom Honey Recipes + a Giveaway!

get fresh recipes via email:

It’s been a sweet year here in the Love & Olive Oil kitchen, that’s for sure. And one big reason for that has been our ongoing partnership with Golden Blossom Honey. We’ve developed a series of 7 recipes over the course of the year for the Golden Blossom website, and figured it was high time we shared those recipes with you, too.

(And be sure to click through for a sweet giveaway, you won’t want to miss it!)

Honey Vanilla Pots de Creme

When developing honey recipes, we tried as often as possible to use the honey as the main sweetener in lieu of refined sugars. These rich and creamy Honey Vanilla Pots de Creme do just that, the natural sweetness of honey providing the perfect amount of sweetness and subtle floral flavor to compliment the vanilla bean. Think of it like a crème brûlée without the brûlée (though you could certainly caramelize some sugar on top if you so desired).

Golden Blossom Honey Recipes

We initially developed this addicting Honey Almond Matzo Crunch Bark for passover, but it’d be a perfect Hanukkah treat too, with a chewy honey-caramel layer that’s mixed with crunchy matzo, covered in melted chocolate and sprinkled with slivered almonds and flaked sea salt. The Poached Eggs on Brioche with Honeyed Berry Gastrique is one of our personal favorites, with buttery brioche and a honey-sweetened fruit sauce drizzled on top. It was inspired by a breakfast I enjoyed on a trip to Medford, Oregon last year, and have not been able to get it out of my head since.

I’m always looking for satisfying snacks, and these No-Bake Fig & Honey Granola Bars fit the bill. With honey, dried figs, and dates for sweetness and flavorful nuts and cashew butter for protein and flavor, these bars are the perfect after-school snack or post-workout energy boost.

And for football season, well, these Baked Honey Bourbon BBQ Chicken Wings are sure to please. These flavorful wings feature a sweet honey barbecue sauce that is spiked with bourbon. The sauce itself would be equally fabulous slathered on pork or chicken breasts.

Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

These Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches feature a rich pistachio honey ice cream sandwiched in between two white chocolate pistachio cookies. The pistachio makes for a unique flavor and a pop of color in place of the more typical macadamia nuts.

Pan-Seared Duck Breasts with Honey and Dried Figs

We created this Pan-Seared Duck Breasts with Honey and Dried Figs recipe for passover/Easter, but really the deliciousness could be served all year round. I mean, talk about a perfect Thanksgiving recipe for two.
