Once you make this cinnamon honey butter you will want to slather it on everything.

It’s incredibly easy to make with 5 ingredients in 5 minutes, it tastes even better than the Texas Roadhouse butter, and you can make it in the comfort of your own home.

This honey butter makes any meal special. Slather some on fresh baked cornbread (and eat it with this chili). Take your breakfast to the next level by spreading it on top. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, banana bread. The possibilities are truly endless. 

 My kids adore this Texas Roadhouse butter and ask for cornbread just so they can eat it. They take a bite, strategically placing their mouths so that they consume all of the honey butter in one shot. Then they exclaim “I need more butter mom, it’s all gone!” Can’t argue with that right?

Cinnamon Honey Butter: Ingredients & Substitutions

The only thing to note about the ingredients is that the butter needs to be softened to room temperature.

  • Salted Butter. Unsalted butter works well, so does vegan butter.
  • Powdered Sugar. you can substitute homemade refined-sugar free powdered sugar click here for the recipe: paleo powdered sugar recipe.
  • Honey. Maple syrup can be used in place of honey for another delicious option. I love both of them equally. Obviously maple syrup will impart a slight maple taste, which compliments fall foods (like this apple cinnamon baked oatmeal or these pumpkin muffins).
  • Vanilla Extract. the seeds of one vanilla bean or vanilla bean paste are both good substitutes.

    Wow! So good! This should be sold in stores! I used large granule sea salt because it was all I had. Fine grains would have been better

      Thank you so much for all these recipes. I am so thankful for people like you who provide to us healthier options for foods we enjoyed in the past. I am also very grateful that you put in a paleo option as well. Thank you for all you share with us! You are very much appreciated.

    Hi, Laura I have been following your blog for a long time and your recipes are wonderful addition to my daily routine. What a delicious bread topping for toast. A great replacement to the peanut butter. This homemade recipe looks as consistent as the restaurant ready. Thanks for sharing!

    Made this last minute to have on a Snickerdoodle bread recipe I tried. Lightly toasted one half of the bread and used this, delicious! Will also be using for cinnamon/raisin toast from a homemade loaf from our neighbor.

    Just made this (May 8th 2020) and it’s amazing!
    The only thing was I used a whole stick of unsalted butter and the 1/8 tsp salt and halved the rest of the ingredients, it was amazing!

    Cinnamon Honey Butter Texas Roadhouse = YUM!
    3.27.2020 I made this delicious cinnamon butter yesterday. I have to agree with another comment that I could eat just the butter by itself. I had been looking for a good recipe. First, I tried my own. Good but not there yet. Then tried two others; almost there. THEN I found this recipe which is now my forever recipe. Thank you for sharing it.
    Ps. I added a quarter cup of canola oil first to my stick of butter and incorporated it well. Then added the remaining ingredients. The vegetable oil makes it spreadable about 3 to 5 minutes out of the frig.
