Just 10 ingredients (water included) and a speedy simmer stand between you and this vegan 10-Minute Sweet & Tangy Maple BBQ Sauce.

Cook Time5 mins
Total Time10 mins
Course: BBQ, Sauce
Servings: 2 cups


  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • ¼ cup plus 2 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup plus 1 ½ tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons braggs aminos or tamari
  • 3 tablespoons seeded and minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon ground allspice


  • Add all ingredients to a medium sauce pan and whisk together over low heat.
  • Let simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from heat, transfer to glass jar or container, and refrigerate.


*I prefer a tangy and sweet BBQ sauce, so feel free to cut back on the amount of apple cider vinegar and coconut sugar, if you want less tang and/or sweetness. Just taste as you go until you've reached the right balance of flavors.
