Healthy BBQ sauce recipe

Who doesn't like BBQ sauce? Sweet, spicy and sometimes it just gives that extra wow factor to a dish. You can eat it with various dishes such as the 'Meatloaf' that is also on my blog, but also with potatoes or over a salad. It does not always have to be an unhealthy variant, because this BBQ sauce is completely healthy. Pure, no crazy additives and only whole foods.
I'm curious what you think!
