Why Make Low Carb Honey Mustard
You may be wondering is honey mustard keto friendly, or why make low carb honey mustard when you can use a small portion of the store bought stuff. I make my low carb honey mustard, because in just 2 tablespoons of the regular stuff, there are 7 grams of carbs and almost 5 grams of sugar!
Which is WAY more than I’d like to dip my keto fried chicken into. Not to mention, who eats only 2 tablespoons?!
To save ourselves some carbs, well simply swap honey for a low carb sweetener instead…
How to Make Keto Honey Mustard + Ingredients
If you’re feeling lazy or tired, you still have no excuse not to make this keto honey mustard! Literally, a measure stir and eat kind-a-thang — Here’s the skinny on the low carb shopping list ingredients used, and potential swaps:
The foundation of any honey mustard recipe, mayo adds a creamy base and a lotta flava! If you aren’t a fan of mayo, swap for low carb Greek yogurt (I always do this!). Keep in mind that Greek yogurt will add a few grams of carbs and protein to the macros of this low carb honey mustard.
In this low carb honey mustard recipe, I use both dijon and yellow. Yellow mustard is more traditional, while dijon adds a nice zest to this low carb honey mustard. Use whatever combination of the two you prefer.
Lemon juice may seem skippable, but trust me friends, this low carb honey mustard won’t taste the same without it.
As you know, the human tongue registers 5 flavors — salt, sweet, bitter, acid and umami — without a harmonious blend of all 5 flavors, recipes taste pretty darn blah. Lemon juice adds the touch of acid needed to make the flavor profile of this low carb honey mustard truly come together.
If you don’t feel like squeezing lemons, add apple cider vinegar instead.
I’ll be honest, in low carb desserts and any low carb bread recipe, stevia isn’t my keto sweetener of choice — but it works marvelously to sweeten this sugar free honey mustard.
If you’d prefer to use an alternative sweetener, be sure to grab a liquid version, as it blends best with the other ingredients in this recipe.
How to Use This Keto Salad Dressing
Low carb honey mustard can be used in a handful of delicious low carb recipes, it’s way more versatile than just a plain old keto honey mustard dipping sauce! Here are some of my favorite uses:
- Serve with low carb fried chicken
- Turn it into a keto salad dressing (instructions below)

Creating A Low Carb Salad Dressing
Honey mustard has always been my favorite low carb salad dressing — and it’s super easy to make using this recipe as a base! Simply swap mayonnaise for ¼ cup vegetable oil, mix and enjoy your very own keto honey mustard dressing recipe.
I prefer vegetable to olive oil, as olive has a strong flavor that doesn’t mesh with the mustard and stevia (in my opinion). Try avocado, corn or peanut oil.
