This paleo mayonnaise recipe is not just simple, but it also tastes amazing. Once you start making your own mayonnaise, you will probably never buy the jar stuff from the supermarket again. The difference is amazing, and the best thing is you know exactly what has gone into it.
You can do this recipe by hand, but I would highly recommend using an electronic food processor. It will make this recipe so damn easy and quick.
If you decide to do it by hand, I suggest placing a towel underneath the bowl to stop it from sliding when you’re whisking.
If you’re after some recipes to go with this mayonnaise, then be sure to check out the paleo fried chicken or the sweet potato fries. Both of these recipes are delicious and go amazing well this condiment.

Paleo Mayonnaise Recipe
1 & 1/2 Cups
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- ¾ cup light tasting olive oil
- ¼ cup coconut oil (softened)
- Salt & Pepper
- Place the egg yolks, mustard and lemon juice into the food processor.
- Turn on the food processor and start to add the oils slowly. Be careful not to add too much oil too fast otherwise the mix will split.
- As you add more and more of the oil it should start to thicken up at this point you can pour a little faster.
- Once you have finished adding the oil, season with salt & pepper.
- Serve & Enjoy
- As this is a raw egg product, I would highly be recommended not keeping this paleo mayonnaise past seven days. Also, make sure you place this in the fridge covered whenever you’re not using it.
- If you’re not a fan of coconut, you can always try replacing it with another paleo friendly fat/oil. A favorite variation is using bacon fat instead of the coconut oil.
- For the best quality mayo, I would highly recommend that the eggs you use should be as fresh as possible. Older eggs will not work as well, and your mayo might not last as long in the fridge.
If you’re curious about the impact of eating this tasty mayonnaise will have on your diet then you find the nutritional information below. For the info, I assume a typical serving is one tablespoon so this information will vary if you have less or more than that.
This information will also vary depending on the oils that you use. For example, if you use bacon fat, then this will have different nutritional values when compared to coconut oil.
If you don’t feel like making mayo and still much prefer just to buy it from a store, then you can find paleo-friendly versions around.
I know that Amazon has a pretty good avocado oil mayonnaise and is pretty affordable. They’re an online store so you will need to get it delivered to your door which might save you having to go to the shops.
