Gluten-Free Honey Maple BBQ Sauce

My favorite burger is topped with bacon, pickles, ketchup, mustard, and BBQ sauce. Yum, my mouth is nearly watering just thinking about it.

But you know what I don’t love? All the preservatives, chemicals, and additive extras found in conventional condiments these days. Sigh.

So, being me, I make my own! Not only do homemade condiments taste better because they’re fresh, but they are also full of goodness and nutrition!

This recipe for my Honey Maple BBQ Sauce can be made and eaten in the same day. And better yet, if you store it in a large mason jar, it will be ready to grab from the fridge for use any day!

Honey Maple BBQ Sauce

  • 1 can tomato sauce (15 ounces)
  • 1/2 can tomato paste (3 ounces)garlic
  • 1/8 cup molasses
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke

Combine in a sauce pan over medium low heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.

This sauce is a hit with a little bit of heat and a little bit of sweet! Let me know what you think and enjoy!

BBQ Rub Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are filling and delicious, we eat them several times a week in our house. Raw and roasted are my favorite (seriously, try a bite raw sometime.)

For something new, I added BBQ rub to the oil and sweet potatoes before the oven and yum. I cannot wait to make them again. Here’s the recipe!

In a small bowl, combine everything and lay on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. So easy, so good. Enjoy!
