I love BBQ sauce. There is no way around it. There have been many times when I have thought about trying to go without it, but after going gluten-free and dairy-free, I am not going to. As a family, we use a lot of barbeque sauce. I have found an all-natural bottled sauce that we like, but it is nice to have something homemade. I like this honey BBQ sauce recipe.
It does not have vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, or brown sugar (I have always wanted a recipe that did not contain Worcestershire sauce or brown sugar). So it took me a few attempts of experimenting to get it just right.
Here is the all-natural, gluten-free, dairy-free honey BBQ sauce recipe.
Sweet Honey BBQ Sauce
- 1 cup tomato puree
- ½ cup honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
- 1 ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ cup water filtered tap
- Combine all of the included ingredients in a bowl and mix. (Coconut aminos are a replacement for soy sauce. They are all-natural and do not contain soy. It is simply coconut sap and sea salt. I love it!)
- If you are just using this as a dipping sauce, pour the mixture into a pan.
- Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow it simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until you get the desired thickness. I like to use this on baked BBQ chicken, meatballs, and meatloaf.
- For those recipes, add 1 cup of water (instead of 1/2 cup) with the baked bbq chicken, keep the 1/2 cup water for meatballs, and do not add water for the meatloaf.
