I think you’ll love it! But, fair warning, it does spoil your family to have all the flavor right there in their butter when you begin using it. Ha!

It all begins with a stick of softened butter, a bit of honey, and cinnamon. Three simple ingredients to kick whatever you serve it with up a notch or two.

  1. Love it on the sweet potatoes and I would be eating this on everything!

  2. HOLY BUTTER PERFECTION – I love the thought of this on a sweet potato!

  3. Thanks Robyn for the nice recipe. Toast sounds good to me. Have a great weekend

  4. Definitely need to make this cinnamon honey butter for the next time we have sweet potatoes!

  5. I don’t always use syrup on my pancakes, I prefer butter and I just know this would be great! You know I’m pinning it!

  6. I just celebrated my 70th Birthday this past AUGUST 20th and still enjoy so much cooking for family and friends and most importantly trying new recipes. The Cinnamon Honey Butter will most assuredly be made soon to used for baked sweet potatoes….which I love.

  8. This sounds amazing, so I need to try it! If you want to take the flavor up several notches, try Vietnamese cinnamon in it. It’s the best cinnamon I’ve ever tasted!

    • I second the Vietnamese cinnamon. I live in the Milwaukee, WI area and get mine from Penzey’s spices. It can ordered from their catalog also.

  9. Awesome on sweet potatoes, bagels, toast, etc….The uses are endless!

  10. My Mom is a diabetic and regardless of how great they think honey is, it is not for a diabetic. Any other options you can think of?

  11. Do you think you could use half coconut butter>?

  12. Dear Robin I followed another recipe that a friend gave me. It’s  way to sweet I was wondering if you could help me to tone it down. It’s one stick butter
    1/2 cup Honey
    1/2 cup confectioners sugar 
    1tsp. Cinnamon 
        Any help is greatly appreciated. Next time I’ll be following your recipe !!!!!!Bonni

    • Hi Bonnie,
      It seems that a great deal of sweetener has been added to the cinnamon and butter in the other recipe. I believe I would increase the amount of butter and cinnamon in the recipe to get it to a place that isn’t so sweet. Since my recipe has only 2 tablespoons of sweetener to this recipe having a cup, you’ll want to definitely increase the butter and cinnamon by a stick (if not more!). I hope that helps! And remember, it should freeze well if you wrap it tightly in wrap and then place into a freezer safe bag or container. xo

  13. Would this work with a stick of margarine?

  14. I make this for family members that can’t have sugar. They think it’s great and it doesn’t have the negative effects like regular sugary foods.
