We’ve had a number of emails asking for a syn free BBQ Sauce recipe. This is the one we use for our Hunters Chicken and Pulled Pork and it’s that good we thought it deserved a recipe all of it’s own, to make it easier for you guys to find and follow.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
We love BBQ Sauce, but like many of our favourite things, it’s not very Slimming World friendly. There are a lot of BBQ sauce recipes out there and this is our Slimming World version and our favourite.
This Syn Free BBQ Sauce is perfect for:
- Accompanying your KFC Fakeaway
- A dip for your potato wedges or chips
- A sauce to smother over your BBQ chicken or homemade kebabs
- A base sauce for your BBQ Pizza
You’ll notice that this recipe calls for BBQ seasoning, we like to use Schwartz Perfect Shake BBQ Classic Seasoning as it’s syn free. If you don’t have this you can use any BBQ seasoning. Just remember to check the syn value as you’d be amazed at how many syns are in some seasonings & rubs due to the high sugar content!
You can find the Schwartz Seasoning here on Schwartz Perfect Shake Classic BBQ Herb and Spice Blend, 44g or in most supermarkets.
You can make this sauce in advance, and keep it in the fridge for up to a week, so just pop it in a clean airtight container and you’ll have a Syn Free BBQ Sauce on tap!
Another thing to point out is that this recipe uses Franks Buffalo Wings Hot Sauce. There are 2 different Franks sauces, the Hot Wings one and the Original Cayenne one.
The Buffalo Wings Hot Sauce is only 0.5 syns for 3 tablespoons. Having said that, we’re only using 1 tbsp here we don’t bother synning. But, as we always say, the choice is yours.
It’s worth noting that the Original Cayenne Hot Sauce is on the SW Syns app at 1 Syn for 1 tbsp. Once again, it’s up to you if you choose to syn it.
What is Sukrin?
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Syn Free BBQ Sauce.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
