Finger-licking, easy, low sugar BBQ Sauce

I’ve adapted this recipe from America’s Test Kitchen’s Paleo-friendly recipe found in their book “Paleo Perfected.”I made the recipe bigger, easier, one pot, and lower in sugar. Their’s was a little complicated, mine is stupid easy. Their’s might make the heavens sing, but with this one you get serenaded by at least one angel…So, I am satisfied.

Finger-licking low sugar BBQ Sauce (vegan, GF, allergy friendly)



  • 1 32oz can of tomato puree
  • 1C Water
  • 2T Molasses
  • 1/3C Cider Vinegar
  •  1/3C Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2T Salt
  • 1/2T White Pepper
  • 2T Onion Powder
  • 2T Garlic Powder
  • 1T Chili powder
  • 1T Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2t Cayenne Pepper (or more for hotter sauce)


  • Combine all ingredients in a low, large non-stick pan on medium-low. Cook until mixture has reduced by half, about thirty minutes. The sugars will start to caramelize on the bottom and on the sides, just keep stirring frequently to mix in all those yummy bits.
