BBQ Sauce w/o sugar (brown sugar substitute?)

I love Bullseye bbq sauce and found this copy cat recipe online, but we are trying to cut sugar out completly.
I can deal with the catsup and tomato sauce (make my own) but what about the brown sugar? What would be a decent substitution? (I do have some white sugar still {prefer not to use it} as well as Splenda, but no brown sugar in the house at all)

1/2 cup minced onions
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 dash tabasco sauce
TIA!
Robin

Hey Robin, I am not sure, but I think that you could try Splenda and molasses as a sub. I will check into it for you.

My first choice would be honey.

I would use a bit of apple, pineapple, or grape juice concentrate. You could also try some pureed prunes, apricots, or dates for a natural sweetness. Honey is a great second choice.

adapted from a SPLENDA® recipe
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular
1/4 cup Sugar-Free Maple Syrup, preferably made with SPLENDA®
Mix ingredients well.

Replaces 1 cup of regular brown sugar to be used when baking.

There is also a brown sugar substitute called Sugar Twin. My mom uses it a good bit. You can get it on-line & in most grocery stores. Just scroll down & it's the 4th item on the page.

That's the one I was thinking of, but couldn't remember the name.

Something else to think about, pureed raisins? I've used them before in a BBQ sauce.
