Can I be real with you?
As much as I love the fall, when it’s almost mandatory to eat food like paleo apple gluten free coffee cake or apple pie overnight oats my food soul-season is ALWAYS gonna be the SUMMER.
There’s something about the flavor of the kiss of smoke on some indian paleo chicken kebabs or a meaty cajun burger that just FILLS MY SOUL.
The fact that frosty adult beverages, like blueberry mojitos, swirling with juicy berries, tropical fruits or pops of ultra-fresh mint, are always around doesn’t hurt either.
You know what also doesn’t hurt? BBQ SAUCE ON EVERYTHING. I mean, that is the best part of Summer eating is it now?

For this recipe, I have only tested out monk fruit sweetener, but I’m sure you could substitute something like swerve or even just regular sugar.
I do not recommend omitting the molasses as it adds lots of flavor to the bbq sauce, and only adds minimal carbs.
