Healthy Mayonnaise

Here's another condiment that's so easy to make at home, you really don't have to put up with the processed soybean oil version you buy at the store.
Healthy Mayonnaise
1 cup oil (sunflower oil works great in this; for the most amazing BLT ever, make it with melted (but not hot) bacon fat!)
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp honey
1 Tbsp distilled vinegar
2 tsp lemon juice
If you have a stick blender, you simply add all the ingredients to a pint-size jar, rest the stick blender on the bottom of the jar, hit the "on" switch, and slowly raise the shaft to the top of the mixture. It should take about 5 seconds.

If you're using a conventional blender, you need to put all ingredients but the oil into the blender, mix lightly, then drizzle oil into the blender jar as slowly as you can. This will take much longer, but the final result will be the same.


  1. I didn't know I could use a stick blender! I have one of those, but the blender I have is on the fritz. I don't have sunflower oil, would olive or coconut oil work? I could always make up some bacon too. Thank you for this post, I'm going to share!

    1. Olive oil works, but it tastes a little odd (in my opinion). If you use coconut oil, it will end up rock solid when it cools (I know this from experience!) Sunflower oil is the best I've found - but feel free to try other oils - and let me know how they work!

  2. How long does this last In the fridge?

  3. Hi Rachel! I've had it last for months. It might separate some after that long, but we just stirred it back together and ate it.
