BAKED BEANS (CLEANER & LOW SUGAR)

Lori Newton

Baked beans are one of my favorite things. I'm from the South & most baked beans here use canned pork & beans. One of the main ingredients in pork & beans is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). I dropped HFCS 3 years ago, so I had to find a healthier way to make baked beans. Honey & coconut sugar are natural sweeteners that actually have lots of health benefits.

NOTE: Before putting in casserole dish, taste to see if any of the ingredients need to be adjusted. If you like it sweeter add more honey or sugar. If you like it spicier, add a little cayenne pepper or hot sauce. I know that bacon is not considered "clean", but it does not create inflammation & pain in my body like HFCS does.
