Baking with honey is an awesome way to add natural sugars to our treats.
We can not wait to use our own fresh honey from our backyard to add into our baking, but for now we buy from our local beekeepers at Fredrich's Honey.
Buying local when possible is such an important way to boost businesses in your community, as well as having access to very fresh ingredients.
We haven't tested out these recipes ourselves yet, but are confident that they would be a prefect springtime treat!
Lemon Honey Cupcakes
These little cupcakes look like the perfect treat to catapult us into spring time!
Fresh lemon is an amazing paring with honey for baking, giving the cupcakes a perfect zing.
The cute size of these mini-cupcakes create a sweet little honey-flavoured bite.
The recipe also includes how to make the adorable little bee as well. This one is a must try!
Honey Lavender Shortbread Cookies
Honey and lavender are the perfect combination. The bees love the lavender so it makes perfect sense to pair it up with some honey in our baking!
This one I can't wait to try with our own lavender from our bee yard - and our own honey!
All these recipes are already making me hungry! Check out the recipe for these cookies below. Try them out and comment how much you liked them!

In Nanaimo we have a local farm where you can pick your own berries fresh! If the weather stays nice like this week, I am going to be heading down to Dudink's soon to start picking!
These sweet treats looks so delicious, I can't wait to try them out at home with fresh berries! I might even try to sneak one for my breakfast. Spring time is the best time!
