Easy GF/Soy Free Homemade BBQ Sauce

Store bought, mass produced barbecue sauces are often made with gluten, soy, preservatives and artificial flavorings. By making your own quick and easy barbecue sauce you have greater control over what you are eating. This GF "Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce" does not use any refined sugar or corn syrup, but will still bring plenty of flavor to your meat, poultry, fish and veggies; so go ahead and cook up a big batch to be sure to have enough to last you awhile! 



  • 2 cups organic (GF) tomato sauce  Note: I like both the Amy's and Muir Glen brands but you can chose any favorite you have.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons stoneground mustard
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  3. Reduce heat and let simmer for 45 minutes. 
  4. Store in the refrigerator.

  1. Your BBQ sauce sounds delicious and it's so wholesome too! I like the addition of the Balsamic vinegar. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  2. That looks like a sauce I'd love to have on my plate! And, since I haven't had nearly enough tangy barbecue sauces lately, I think I'll be making some of this soon. Can I ask what brand of molasses you like to use?

    1. I used "Wholesome Sweenteners" brand of organic molasses (unsulphured) that I purchased from Amazon. Best and thanks for visiting my blog. Phyllis
