I have been avoiding added flavors in things lately as I read they can be hormone disruptors. And because it's summer, I realized that some kind of “natural flavor” is in pretty much every single BBQ sauce including my favorite organic Kinder’s! I found one organic brand without it but I didn’t like the flavor of the sauce, haha. So I was off to make my own BBQ Sauce with no added flavors.

This homemade BBQ sauce is free of added flavors because even natural flavors are not great for you. Plus, it's also free of soy which can sometimes be hiding in BBQ sauce as well! This homemade BBQ sauce recipe takes only 10 minutes to make and you can use it for everything this grilling season.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

No Flavors: Pretty much every BBQ sauce out there has some sort of “natural flavors” in it, usually of the smoked variety and even organic options. I’ve been avoiding natural flavors for a while now and I’ve felt so much better and this Homemade BBQ with Bone Broth doesn’t have any natural flavors!

Use on Everything: From chicken to burgers, sandwiches, pizzas and more. This BBQ Sauce with no added flavors can be used on anything!

Easy: This homemade BBQ sauce recipe is incredibly easy. It just takes a few minutes to mix up ingredients and heat over the stovetop. You can make this homemade BBQ Sauce recipe in 10 minutes!

Bone Broth: I use bone broth in this homemade BBQ sauce recipe for flavor and added nutrients and protein.

Ingredients

Ketchup: The base of this BBQ sauce is organic ketchup. Make sure your ketchup is also free of natural flavors and dyes. I buy the O Organics Ketchup at Vons, which has been my favorite because even the Heinz Organic option has natural flavors!

Light Brown Sugar: I give this sauce some sweetness with a little bit of organic light brown sugar.

Bone Broth: I use beef bone broth for flavor and nutrients, you can also use chicken if you prefer. Use code MIMIBAKESCOOKIES for 20% off Kettle and Fire.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Organic apple cider vinegar is used in this homemade BBQ sauce recipe for flavor and tang.

Honey: Organic raw honey adds a little sweetness and also helps with texture.

Coconut Aminos: I use organic coconut aminos for that sweet and salty umami flavor.

Spices: I use a mix of organic onion powder, garlic powder, ground mustard, ground cumin, smoked paprika and sea salt. The smoked paprika is really crucial and is not the same as ground paprika, this is where the sweet smokey flavor comes from!
