I have always loved a good honey mustard dip. When I was a kid, it was my favourite dip for chicken nuggets. I was obssessed, and luckily I haven’t had to give it up since going vegan!
This vegan honey mustard dip tastes pretty much like any typical honey mustard dipping sauce, so it is perfect for fries! It may even surpass my dill pickle hummus as my favourite dip of the moment.

And there is no compromise on the taste. This dip is thick and creamy, and has a strong, tangy taste that will leave you wanting more!
Why you will love this vegan honey mustard
This is the best, healthiest vegan honey mustard! It is:
There seems to be a lot of debate about whether or not honey is vegan. The answer is pretty clear and simple though: honey comes from an animal, so it is not vegan.
I am not an expert on the ethics of honey and how it is produced, so if you want to learn more you can do some searches online or read this article about the honey industry for more information.
Many people who eat a plant-based diet include honey in their diet, but to make this recipe vegan, the honey needs to be replaced.
So instead of honey, I use maple syrup for this vegan honey mustard.
Other common vegan honey substitutes are agave nectar and molasses, however I haven’t tried this recipe with either of these ingredients.
How to make this vegan honey mustard dip
This vegan honey mustard dip contains only 4 simple ingredients:
- Dijon mustard
- Maple syrup
- White kidney beans
- Apple cider vinegar
All you have to do is blend all the ingredients together in a food processor and you’re done!
Some may be wondering why I decided to put white kiney beans in this dip. I added them as a way to thicken the dip. Many recipes call for vegan mayo, but I like to stick to mostly whole foods. White beans are the perfect way to thicken this honey mustard from a dressing to a dip without changing the flavour.
- Make sure you use 100% pure maple syrup, with no additives.
- Some Dijon mustard is not vegan. Many list white wine as an ingredient, which is often not vegan. If you want to be sure it’s vegan, I recommend reading the ingredients and finding a Dijon mustard without any white wine.
