Who else loves baked beans?! You know the ones we’re talking about–the ones loaded with bacon, brown sugar, and molasses! Well, we’ve created a healthier version of them…and they still have bacon!! But, we made them with molasses and monkfruit!

*Remember to buy organic and avoid your food allergies when making this recipe! If you do not know what your food allergies are, get them tested soon!

INGREDIENTS:

10 slices uncured bacon, sliced
1 organic yellow onion, finely diced
1/2 organic green bell pepper or 3 organic celery ribs, finely diced
4 15.5-oz. cans organic navy beans or 2 15.5-oz. cans organic navy beans & 2 15.5-oz. cans organic pinto beans
4 Tbsp. Wellness Way Ketchup (https://www.thewellnessway.com/tomato-free-ketchup/)
1/4 cup organic molasses
2/3 cup “brown sugar” (2/3 cup monkfruit + 3/4 Tbsp molasses mixed together)
1/4 cup organic apple cider vinegar
2 tsp organic ground mustard
*Can add 1 lb. organic grass-fed burger to make it a meal)

DIRECTIONS:

Fully cook the bacon either over the stove of in the oven, and set aside. Drain with a paper towel. Once cooled, roughly chop into semi-bite-sized pieces.
Preheat oven to 325°F and set rack to the lower-middle position.
In a deep skillet, heat about 2 tablespoons of bacon grease (or MELT brand butter) over medium heat. Add diced onion and green pepper/celery and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until softened.
Add remaining ingredients and stir well to combine. Let the mixture simmer for a minute or so. While the mixture is simmering, grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or another 3-quart dish.
Pour beans into the prepared baking dish and lay cooked bacon on top of the beans.
Bake for 2-3 hours, depending on your desired consistency.
Let the beans stand for 5 minutes to cool before serving.
