Can you use honey instead of agave nectar?
Also know, what can agave nectar be substituted for?
It is often used as a substitute for sugar, simple syrup, honey, and molasses to sweeten cocktails, tea, and coffee. It has also become a popular alternative for baked goods, sauces, and even dressings. Agave nectar is a common alternative sweetener for vegans when used instead of honey.
Also, is agave syrup better than honey? But both honey and agave nectar are caloric sweeteners and offer little added nutritional value. Honey is better than agave nectar because it is: higher in antioxidants. lower in fructose-content.
Also, can you use sugar instead of agave nectar?
Use about two-thirds cup of agave nectar for every one cup of sugar called for in recipes. Reduce the liquid ingredients in recipes by two-thirds, since agave nectar is liquid (and sugar is dry). Reduce your oven temperature by 25 degrees and increase baking time by a few minutes.
What can I substitute for honey?
Light corn syrup would be the best flavor match, but dark corn syrup will work, too. Other options to try include maple syrup or molasses (not blackstrap). These substitutes can replace honey measure for measure. They may change the flavor of your recipe slightly, but that could turn out to be a good thing.
