Can honey be substituted for the maple syrup? Not a huge fan of maple.

I use honey all the time in my granola recipe. Turns out great!

Agree with Stephanie—that should work fine! Peanut-honey sounds so good, too.
Shirlie April 19, 2019
Thank you Emma. Going to give this a try! 😀
Stephanie G. April 19, 2019
Sure. I think any liquid sweetener will work.
Shirlie April 19, 2019
Thank you Stephanie for your prompt reply! I’m excited to try this recipe. 😁

Hi Shirlie! Honey burns at a lower temperature than maple syrup, as the ratio of fructose-glucose are different. This doesn't have a strong maple flavor so perhaps it's worth trying. If not, just watch the granola carefully.

Thank you so much, Lindsay. That’s definitely good to know (regarding the honey). I guess I should give the original recipe a try, since you say the maple flavor isn’t strong or overpowering, and make my determination from there. It can’t hurt. Thanks again! 🤗
