Healthy Honey Mustard

I am obsessed with condiments. 

Vinegar, Barbeque Sauce, Mayo, Ketchup, Mustard, Hot Sauce…you name it and I will use copious amounts.

Store-bought condiments are kind of pricey, though.

And they’re filled with preservatives to promote a longer shelf-life.

I began combing through recipes on a few healthy-living blogs I follow, and  stumbled across Melissa’s recipe for Healthy Honey Mustard.

Honey Mustard?? I like Honey Mustard!

Through a few messy attempts, I developed my own version of Healthy Honey Mustard that is delicious and packed with Protein AND Fiber.

You can also modify it to keep vegan, if you prefer.

Melissa’s recipe calls for:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 T yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 T honey
  • 1 T lemon juice

(Whisk in a bowl and enjoy)

I adapted this recipe to include:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (Vegans can substitute soy or coconut yogurt.)
  • 2 T yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 T  honey (Agave also works really well if you want to keep vegan.)
  • 2 T Apple Cider Vinegar (I have tried with lemon juice and with vinegar.  I preferred the vinegar version.)
  • 2 T Ground Chia Seeds


Behold, the secret ingredient:


The Chia Seeds are important because they contribute a gelatinous quality to the honey mustard.  Without them, the recipe can be a little runny.

I like my Honey Mustard to be on the thick side, so adding the Chia Seeds perfected the consistency.

Bonus: Chia Seeds are great for you.  They add fiber and protein to the recipe.  The yogurt contributes to the protein count as well!

This recipe is even better after it has been refrigerated overnight.

Really, this recipe is delicious and so good for you.

Why not give it a try as a salad dressing?
