Diabetic Baked Beans

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by woodland hues

Originally from a diabetic cookbook, it's my preferred way to enjoy baked beans, even though I'm not diabetic (DH is), because it's so easy and the taste is rich & savoury, without all the creamy sauce. Canned beans work just as well, if you like. 240 calories per serving, 35 g carbs, 9 g protein, 7 g fat. Prep time does not include soaking beans overnight and cooking them beforehand (they would need only 20 minutes cooking time to be ready to use).

Very good! I used 1 can pinto and 1 kidney and doubled the "sauce".Also added a squirt of ketchup.Such a nice change from overly-sweet, canned baked beans.Thanks so much!
