I love salty snacks. Popcorn, pretzels, tortilla chips… those are my weakness. But luckily, healthy options have been popping up on the market! I recently tried FitJoy’s grain-free pretzels, and I have to say I was impressed. These pretzels are salty and crunchy, and you’d never guess they’re made without traditional flour. These pretzels are a blend of cassava flour, chickpea flour, and potato starch. Perfect for anyone who is gluten-free or avoiding grains!

To keep things light and healthy, I wanted to pair it with a yummy dip recipe that wouldn’t feel heavy. While I love a spicy mustard dip with pretzels, I was craving a slightly sweeter option. To make it creamy without using mayonnaise, I used tahini as the base. With a touch of honey and a few spices from my pantry, this dip was ready in no time!

Tips for the perfect honey mustard dip

  • Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds, so it’s vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free! It makes this dip super creamy without having to add oil or mayonnaise. It’s pretty thick, so feel free to use additional water to thin out this dip.
  • You can adjust the amount of sweetener depending on how sweet you like it! I recommend tasting it with a pretzel, rather than with a spoon, so you can decide how it pairs with the amount of salt.

  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or agave, if vegan)
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of water to thin (plus more if needed)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, honey, mustards, lemon juice, and water. Add additional water to thin, if needed.
  2. Serve as a pretzel dip with FitJoy Pretzels!
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
