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.

How to Make BAKED BEANS (CLEANER & LOW SUGAR)

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute bacon and onion in a skillet with a little olive oil until onion is tender.
  2. Drain the liquid from one can of beans, but use the liquid in the other can. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together including bacon and onion.
  3. Place in square casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees or until hot and bubbly.
  4. 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.
