Vegan Pancakes with Maple Syrup
What's wrong with consuming honey you ask? Here's what's wrong: Profiting from honey requires the manipulation and exploitation of the insects’ desire to live and protect their hive. Like other factory-farmed animals, honeybees are victims of unnatural living conditions, genetic manipulation, and stressful transportation. To prevent 'swarming', beekeepers clip the wings of a queen bees, killing and replacing an older queen after just one or two years, and confining a queen who is trying to begin a swarm. Queens are artificially inseminated using drones, who are killed in the process.
You could also try locally available 'gur' (jaggery). This delicious 'notun gur' comes in a liquid form and tastes just divine with pancakes or as a dressing!
