Whole30 Paleo Barbecue Sauce

There are a variety of ways to make a barbecue sauce. However, the majority of store-bought barbecue sauces are very high in sugar. The dates in this recipe make a great natural substitute! This barbecue sauce can last up to 4 weeks in the fridge. I recommend storing in a sterilized Mason jar. This sauce is very versatile as it can be used as a marinade, a dipping sauce and even on a pizza base.

  • 170 ml Balsamic Vinegar
  • 120 ml Water
  • 160 g Tomato Paste
  • 8 pitted Medjool Dates
  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  1. Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat.

  2. Add all ingredients, stir gently then, bring low simmer for approximately 5 minutes.

  3. Pour the BBQ sauce into a high powered blender.

  4. Blend on high speed for approximately 2 minutes.

This recipe is great because it can be easily modified. If you love a fiery kick, why not add 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper? Adding 1tbsp more of vinegar makes the sauce extra tangy.
