Spicy Maple BBQ Sauce

This BBQ sauce is everything. One of the coolest parts is that you don’t have to cook it! Or add anything to thicken. I have made some pretty cool BBQ sauce recipes in the past. One involved pineapple and was amazing, but it was a pain and that meant I didn’t make it very often. Luckily there are healthy and delicious options out there like this brand. It’s nice to be able to make your own when you need it though. Let me know how you like this recipe and how you used the sauce!

Spicy Maple BBQ Sauce


• ½ cup Coconut Aminos

• 1/4 cup of Water (do not add until the very end–can add more water to get the texture you desire)

•  1/4 cup of Pure Maple Syrup

• 1/4 cup Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

• 1 6oz can of Tomato Paste

• 1T Coarse Dijon Mustard (add 1 then taste and see if you want another; I like mustard so I did 2)

• 11/2 tsp Garlic Powder

• 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

• Dash of Pepper

• ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper

• 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes (omit if you don’t like really spicy)


1. Add all ingredients, except for the water, into a large bowl. Mix until everything is evenly incorporated.

2. Add your 1/4 cup of water and mix it in. This should still leave you with a thick BBQ sauce. If you want to thin it out more you can slowly add more water and mix.

3. Store in a glass container in the fridge for 5-7 days.

Ideas for Use

• Bottom Round Beef Roast: I rubbed the roast with 1/2 cup of this BBQ sauce and cooked in a sous vide for 8 hours at 131F. I topped the beef with more BBQ when we ate it.

• Crock Pot Shredded Chicken: Add 2lb chicken breast to crock pot with 2/3 cup of this BBQ sauce and cooked on low for 8 hours. Shred and let soak up juices.

• Top your favorite burger with it!
