Barbecue sauce is a great on meat and low carb fries, but also makes a great salad dressing and marinade. This simple Keto BBQ sauce has all the good stuff without any of the filler ingredients that bottled sauce has.

Low Carb BBQ Sauce


The original recipe below uses our Golden Sweetener, which really adds that rich cane sugar sweetness. As we were testing our new Organic Classic Sweetener in different recipes, we found this barbeque sauce was equally as good with that sweetener option...

So give this simple, homemade, sugar-free barbeque sauce recipe a try, even if you only have one of our sweeteners in your pantry!

In my opinion golden monk fruit is a replacement for brown sugar. This will give it a closer taste of bbq sauce plus gives it a darker color.

Curious – Why the golden Monk fruit instead of the classic?
