Q&A: Can I subsitute honey for the sugar in this recipe?

Question by Jessica: Can I subsitute honey for the sugar in this recipe?
I need to make sugar-free, wheat-free cookies.

Can I substitute honey for the sugars in this recipe: http://www.wheat-free.org/wheat-gluten-free-chocolate-chip-cookies.html ?

Or what about with this recipe: http://www.wheat-free.org/peanut-butter-cookies.html ?

you can substitute honey for sugar in anything. I do it all the time. But if you’re using the expensive dark honey, it will change the flavor of the recipe. honey has a very strong flavor and the dark stuff even more. I made spice cake with dark honey instead of sugar and the honey overpowered all the spices (and I always go heavy on spices). You can use an equal amount, or a little less. The honey will also add moisture to the recipe.

    Yes, you can. I would use crystalized honey, though. You can get it at the health food store. I use it when I want honey but don’t want more liquid in a recipe.
