Barbecue Dipping Sauce: Meanwhile, heat coconut oil in small saucepan set over medium heat; cook onion, jalapeño and garlic for 3 to 5 minutes or until very tender. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, salt and pepper; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.
Stir in puréed tomatoes, Allulose Granulated Sweetener, vinegar, tomato paste, 2 tbsp water, mustard and Worcestershire sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.
Crudités: Slice veggies and arrange the red pepper, cucumbers, broccoli and cauliflower on serving dish.
Serve Chicken Nuggets and Crudités with barbecue sauce for dipping.
