    Healthy baked beans??


    If anyone has recipes for baked beans that don't include tons of sugar I'd love to know. Bush's baked beans taste so incredible with the bbq chicken I make, but they are loaded with sugar.

    Ideas? Anyone? Anyone? Bueler? Bueler?

    Just found this:

    * 2 strips of thick bacon, chopped fine
    * 1 small onion, minced
    * 1 clove garlic, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1 small can (6 oz) tomato paste
    * 1 can (12 oz) diet (sugar-free) cola - Splenda-sweetened preferred
    * 1/4 cup low carb (sugar-free) catsup
    * 3 T mustard
    * 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    * 1 pinch ground cloves
    * Hot sauce to taste

    Preparation:
    Note 1: If you prefer to leave the bacon out, add 1-3 teaspoons of liquid smoke, to taste, near the end of the cooking. Alternatively, add some smoky flavor using 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, or chipotle powder to taste.

    Note 2: If you can't find low carb catsup, leave it out, but add about a tablespoon of vinegar and some sweetener, to taste.

    1) Fry the bacon in a saucepan - a 2 qt pan works well.

    2) Add the onion and cook over medium until soft - 3-5 minutes. Add garlic at this point if you're using fresh and stir it for half a minute or so.

    3) Add the rest of the ingredients, plus about half a cup of water. Stir well. 4) Simmer for 20-30 minutes. It will cook down a bit and flavors will combine. 5) Adjust the seasonings so you have the balance you want - you can add vinegar, artificial sweetener (liquid preferred), or hot sauce. (If it's too hot, adding more sweetener will tone it down.)

    The recipe makes approximately 10 servings of 1/4 cup each. Each serving has about 3.5 grams of carbohydrate plus 1 gram of fiber.

    Also do a search for the sugar free ketchup recipe I posted on here a while back and use that instead of the regular stuff. Hope this helped

    I should probably add this, Sugar Free BBQ sauce

    Ingredients:

    * 2 strips of thick bacon, chopped fine (or see note)
    * 1 small onion, minced
    * 1 clove garlic, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 1 small can (6 oz) tomato paste
    * 1 can (12 oz) diet (sugar-free) cola - Splenda-sweetened preferred
    * 1/4 cup low carb (sugar-free) catsup, (or see note)
    * 3 T mustard
    * 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    * 1 pinch ground cloves
    * Hot sauce to taste

    Preparation:
    Note 1: If you prefer to leave the bacon out, add 1-3 teaspoons of liquid smoke, to taste, near the end of the cooking. Alternatively, add some smoky flavor using 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, or chipotle powder to taste.

    Note 2: If you can't find low carb catsup, leave it out, but add about a tablespoon of vinegar and some sweetener, to taste.
