Low Carb No Sugar Homemade BBQ Sauce is also Paleo, Gluten Free and Dairy Free!
I so love to have homemade, healthy mixes and condiments in my kitchen. Low Carb No Sugar Homemade BBQ Sauce is easy and guess what! It tastes just like BBQ sauce! I have tried quite a few BBQ sauce recipes and have been disappointed. That is, until I tried this one. I was encouraged when it smelled so much like the real thing as it cooked but I didn’t want to be too hopeful. It turns out that the hope was well founded. THIS is the recipe I have been looking for! I found it here and made a few changes. Instead of using whole garlic and onion, I use powder. It is lower carb and easier, not to mention (OK, I guess I did mention it; what a strange saying!) we wouldn’t want the chunks in our sauce.
So many recipes say “No Sugar” but what they really mean is no white sugar and they add honey, maple syrup, or artificial sugar. Even the healthy versions have sugar of some kind added and that is not low carb. This recipe REALLY has NO SUGAR. And the best part about that is that it is still wonderful BBQ sauce! Don’t ask me how, but the sugar is not needed in this recipe. You can thank me later—or now, that is fine. 🙂
