Smokey Keto Barbecue Sauce | Sugar-free

Smokey Keto Barbecue Sauce | Sugar-free

Share This Recipe

I am serious that this Smokey Keto Barbecue Sauce is seriously that good it truly should be bottled and sold!

I am not joking when I say how good this sauce really is.  Even now I have a huge jar of it in the fridge.  A good sauce should always be handy for a marinade or a dipping sauce.

When I first made this smokey keto barbecue sauce I used it as a glaze.

 This sugar free sauce works wonders on ribs, a baked ham, sausages and even chicken and wings.

smokey keto barbecue sauce ingredients

300 ml espresso coffee – yes that is just over a cup of hot coffee. I use 2 Nespresso pods for 2 shots to make up the 300 ml. I then use then ground coffee in the pods in the mix as well. Even if you are not a coffee lover the sauce is just enriched by the coffee rather than flavoured.

Sweeteners – erythritol, black strap molasses (or Sukrin Gold) and blackberries sweeten this sugar-free barbecue sauce. If you have ever made barbecue sauce before following a low carb lifestyle, then you will know it is FULL of sugars. To get the same kind of sweetness I have used a few natural sweeteners with a lot less carbs to keep the carb count down. Blackberries help to add the stickiness to the sauce. 

Fire Apple Cider – I choose to use a vinegar with a bit of spice. Any vinegar can be substituted in its place.

  • 24 blackberries crushed

Blackstrap molasses while still a form of sugar has more health benefits to it then any simple sugar. To be completely sugar free choose to use the Sukrin Gold syrup

  1. No carbs listed but only one calorie when there’s molasses (sugar) and blueberries also fruit sugar…can you allay my fears please

    1. Hi Jan, you are correct the details have been changed. The difference between serving measure was the problem.

  2. Hi Megan, I have had your meat dust marinating on my pork ribs since Sunday ready for tomorrow night’s dinner and wondered if I could shortcut the sauce cooking process and make it in the thermomix?
    I was thinking i would just throw all the ingredients in and cook 100 degrees/reverse / stirring speed/ 15 – 20 mins.
    What do you think?
    Cheers Renee

    1. I am guessing it would work fine for sure

  3. Hi Megan, I must make some it’s a favourite of my partners. Before I can, can you please tell me what Fire apple cider vinegar is. Also if I brewed myself some espresso coffee can I use these coffee grounds & how much would I need?

    1. Hi Suzanne, Fire Apple Cider Vinegar is available in coles and woolworths in the Gluten Free sections. Just use a couple of tbsp of coffee grounds

  4. Sounds yum! Strict Ketoer here though, could I sub the molasses for Surkin Gold syrup?

    1. Sure can

      1. Brilliant! Thank you, plan to use this delicious recipe as a glaze for our baked Christmas Ham.
        Usually do my ham with melted apricot conserve ‘painted on’ then a mix of roughly crushed macadamias & brown sugar & smoosh this mix on to make a sweet crunchy coating. Will sub the brown sugar for Surkin Gold granulated. Fingers crossed it works the same. Do think it might work?


  5. A firm favourite sauce of mine.
