Cinnamon honey butter will take any bread from basic to heavenly! No need to visit Texas Roadhouse for this side dish treat, you’ll be the hero of every Christmas, Thanksgiving, and get together when you bring this naturally sweetened butter.
Watch out – you’re about to become obsessed with cinnamon honey butter.
This flavored butter is so fast and easy to make with just three ingredients that get whipped up in five minutes. Lots of the most popular honey butter recipes include powdered sugar, but I think it’s totally unnecessary!
Instead we’re mixing soft salted butter with raw local honey and delicious cinnamon. You could use a hand mixer if you want, but it’s such a small batch that it’s really unnecessary. As long as your butter is at room temperature it’ll be easy to stir together.
My cinnamon honey butter recipe makes just the right amount for one meal. I don’t recommend making much more than this because you’re going to want to eat it ALL!
You really can’t believe how velvety this sweet butter is, how it melts in your mouth, and is just absolutely addiction. You’ll just have to try it to find out.
As a vegetarian, I sometimes miss the fluffy rolls and cinnamon honey butter you get at a steak restaurant like Texas Roadhouse. Now there’s no need to visit just for the sweet side, we can make it at home!
How to make cinnamon honey butter
Let your butter soften to room temperature. If you need to soften it quickly, microwave it in 5 second intervals, turning it over each time, until soft but not melted. Add honey and cinnamon. Stir to combine!
Do you need to refrigerate cinnamon honey butter?
This recipe will keep covered at room temperature for at least a week. I live where it isn’t too warm and regularly leave a stick of butter on the counter (we go through it pretty fast), and honey butter is no different.
If you live in a very warm location you may want to refrigerate your honey butter to keep it from melting. The butter will keep in the refrigerator for one month.
Can you freeze cinnamon honey butter?
Yes, you can freeze honey butter. This is a great way to keep it on hand for any time a craving strikes! I like to use small reusable storage containers to make them easy to stack in the freezer. The butter will keep in the freezer for six months.
This cinnamon honey butter recipe can be customized! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

- Swap the honey for maple syrup
