Is BBQ sauce your favorite condiment?
BBQ sauce can turn any dish from drab to fab instantly with lots of savory and sweet flavor! While most typical BBQ sauces usually feature a ton of added sugar and carbs, check out a few of my favorite low-carb and keto-friendly options you’ve got to try!
1. Walden Farms Original Barbecue Sauce
This popular brand offers a wide variety of calorie-free salad dressings, dessert toppings, as well as BBQ sauces!
Why I like it: I tested the Walden Farms Original flavor BBQ sauce and it was actually pretty tasty! It has apple cider, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper for a kick. This sauce has zero carbs per 2 tablespoon-sized serving.
Why I don’t like it: The only downside was the thin texture. I personally prefer a thicker texture but would consider this as a decent option. I bought this bottle at Sprouts, but it’s available on Amazon.com as well.
2. Simple Girl Organic Carolina Kick BBQ Sauce
Why I like it: Simple Girl Carolina Kick is stevia-sweetened and has a good balance of sweet and mildly spicy. You can taste the smokiness, and it has lots of flavor. At just 1 carb per serving, it’s a great option to consider.
Why I don’t like it: Much like the Walden Farm brand, the texture is very thin.
3. G Hughes Smokehouse Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce – Original
Why I like it: G Hughes Smokehouse BBQ Sauce is a sugar-free tomato and cider vinegar-based sauce that has a sweeter taste and lots of smokey flavors. It doesn’t have a bold spicy flavor, and the texture is thick and rich like a traditional full carb BBQ sauce. G Hughes has just 2 carbs per 2 tablespoon serving.
This sauce is by far my family’s most favorite BBQ sauce, and we enjoy it quite often.
My kids don’t even realize it’s sugar-free, and it’s truly the best tasting keto-friendly option I’ve tasted! Plus, it’s easy to find in most grocery stores and big-box retailers. There are other yummy flavors to try, too, like hickory BBQ sauce and maple brown BBQ sauce.
