Healthier Honey Joys

Healthier Honey Joys

Looking for a fun and scrumptious activity to do with the kids these holidays? Try my healthier no cook version of Honey Joys. This is a great, easy recipe for the kids to make with not too much help needed on your part.

There is so much sugar in the traditional version with 1/3 cup of sugar plus 2 tbls honey and 90gms butter. I’ve added coconut oil as it is naturally sweet, sets well when cooled and coconut oil has amazing health benefits. I’ve left a reduced amount of butter in the recipe as I like the buttery taste it adds but feel free to make it all coconut oil and try that out, it should still be yum.

I let my girls measure all the ingredients out and then let them spoon the mixture into the  cupcake patties themselves.

I’ve added some optional ingredients that would go nicely with these as well.
