How To Make Toast With Stingless Bee Honey & Butter Spread

Stingless Bee Honey aka kelulut is officially recognised as Malaysia’s first superfood, and for good reason – it is scientifically-tested to be:

  • High in easy-to-absorb antioxidants (high amount of phenolic acid, with propolis and bioflavonoids)
  • High in antimicrobial activities (as high as Manuka Honey); it is antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral
  • High in naturally occurring low GI sugar called Trehalulose

Stingless bee honey has a unique sweet and sour taste, and while it is typically consumed straight or in a drink, it also works very well in dishes that call for a tangy flavour. I had the opportunity to experiment with kelulut in some of my recipes, and one of my favourites is to use it as a spread with butter on hot toast. I find the stingless bee honey’s sweet and sour note helps to cut through the richness of the butter, producing a healthy and delicious breakfast option.
