Who knew it was so easier to make a no-sugar-added keto BBQ sauce? 

Sauces can be a tricky purchase at the store as many are filled with sugar and high in carbs. Don’t feel defeated! This keto BBQ sauce is actually quite simple to make and will elevate any part of your meal with the homemade flavor.

Tips for making the best keto BBQ sauce:

  • Double your recipe to always have extra keto barbecue sauce on hand. It will last for up to a month when stored in the refrigerator.
  • The recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of keto brown sweetener. If you like a sweeter sauce, you can increase the sweetener to 3/4 cup or even 1 cup. I recommend making the sauce as written and then tasting it after you whisk it on the stovetop for about 5 minutes or so. Make sure it’s not too hot when you taste it! If you want it sweeter, add more brown keto sweetener.
  • You can also add some heat to this sauce by adding in anywhere from 1/4 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of cayenne powder!

You’ll be making this again and again!

Your family probably won’t even know that this is a keto BBQ sauce. Friends will be impressed that you made your own slathering sauce, too! Believe me when I tell you this has become a staple in my house. 😋

Here’s what my Hip sidekick Emily thought of this keto bbq sauce:

“Yum! I think homemade BBQ sauce is one of the best things ever! This can be used on anything and everything you grill all summer long! It pairs beautifully with chicken, which is my favorite way to use it. The best thing about making your own barbeque sauce is that you can control the sweetness and if you want it spicy or not. Make the double batch because you’ll go through it fast!”

    Do you think you could use white swerve instead of the brown swerve?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, you sure can! I use them interchangeably, lydiaking77!

  2. Ashley

    Is this considered Gluten Free?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes it is! The vinegar is accepted as gluten free even though it is made from corn. When it is in the distillation process they remove the gluten protein. 😊
