Whole30 Honey Mustard Sauce

Was anyone else obsessed with honey mustard growing up? I used that put that sh** on eeeverything. It started out innocently with some chicken nuggets or chicken tenders, and then it became a serious habit as I started putting it on everything savory.

I still love it to this day, but I think this new version, Whole30 honey mustard, is the best I’ve tried yet. Even though there’s no honey, the sauce is still so dang delicious and sweetened with medjool dates. The subtle sweetness of the dates with the spiciness of the mustard is an incredible combo, and I’m kicking myself for not making this sooner in my life.

I’ve already been using it as a sauce, dip, and dressing on the daily and I haven’t gotten sick of it yet.

And the best part? It comes together SO fast and so easily. Everything is thrown into the blender and you just blend it. If you don’t count the whole part where you have to soak the dates to soften them, it’s literally done in a minute.

Definitely my kinda recipe.

With just 5 ingredients (4 if you don’t count water), you’ll love this creamy and dreamy sauce made with the cleanest real foods, so feel free to load it up on everything!

Ways to Enjoy this Whole30 Honey Mustard

    This looks so good! Honey mustard is one of my favorites and I love that you used Medjool dates the substitution. Such a great idea! Love that it’s Whole30 compliant too!

    To be honest, I’m usually not a huge fan of mustard. But I’m really really intrigued by your recipe, as it sounds delicious. I think I’ll give it a try soon!
