Low Carb No Sugar Homemade BBQ Sauce Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Carb, No Added Sugar BBQ Sauce!

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 often 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 (other than the natural sugars in the tomatoes, of course). You won’t get away from that in a bbq sauce made with tomatoes, unfortunately.

The tomatoes will add about 1 gram of sugars to each Tablespoon of bbq sauce. 

Don’t ask me how, but the added sugar is not needed in this recipe. You can thank me later—or now, that is fine. 🙂

And the best part about that is that it is still wonderful BBQ sauce!

    1. Hi Lynette, a few recipes do have macros listed but most do not. There are just so many variables that they are rarely accurate. The best thing for everyone to do is to add the recipe into whatever app they use; My Fitness Pal, Carb Manager, Senza, Fat Secret; whatever they use and put in exactly what brands and measurements they used for the recipe along with how many servings they made. I hope that helps!

    1. Hi Barbara! I have not frozen this exact recipe (I usually can it or just use it up) but I have frozen other tomato based things just fine so I would think it will work fine. I would suggest freezing a small portion to see if you like it.

  1. I don’t have any white wine vinegar. Can I add more Apple cider vinegar instead? Or do I need to just wait till I can pick some up?

    1. Hi Cindy, I would think you could. The ACV is just a little stronger is all. It may be a bit more tangy that way. You could also sub plain white vinegar if you had that. I just like the white wine because it is more mild.

  2. This recipe still contains sugar. There is approximate!y 12 grams naturally occurring sugars in the 6ounce can of tomato paste. Sugar is sugar regardless the source or form it takes. I am diabetic, I educated myself regarding the sugar contents of foods that I might consume. This recipe is more accurately titled “no refined sugar added homemade BBQ sauce”. I agree with you that people willy nilly label recipes no sugar or sugar free just because no “refined sugars” are added. With that said, accurately call it what it really is……no refined sugar added!

    1. Hi, thank you for your comment. I appreciate your feedback and did change the post to reflect that there IS natural sugar from the tomatoes; 1 gram per serving (1 Tbsp)(accrording to my fitness pal)–but yes, that IS sugar. I cannot change the title without a huge mess (permalinks, etc) but did change the subtitle and post. It is still a great recipe and I think most know what I meant. If they didn’t, it is now very clear. Thank you for reading and commenting. I also added the nutrition info to be more helpful. ~Joy
