Hoisin Sauce

Modified from MyPurplePaleo



I love my hoisin sauce!  I found a recipe online and modified it a bit to my liking!

This will give you about 1/4 cup

¼ cup coconut aminos
1 Tbsp almond butter
1 - 2 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
2 tsp white vinegar
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp hot sauce (try Frank's Hot Sauce which is Whole30 friendly)
1/8 tsp black pepper


Combine all the ingredients together in your blender or food processor and blend it until it is well combined.  With the almond butter, it will be a bit thicker than just a liquid sauce, which is how it should be.

Note:
Normally I would say if you don't want to spend the money on the coconut aminos ($7/bottle), to just use heavily salted water.  In this recipe I'm not sure the heavily salted water would work; I've not tried that yet, but down the road I probably will.

The coconut aminos are a replacement for soy sauce, but not that close as they are definitely on the sweet side and very little (if any) salt to them.
