BBQ Beans THM Style

Pin this recipe for later!

So, I made the wipe your Mouth BBQ from the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook. Since it’s an E meal and bbq, I decided I wanted to try my hand at bbq beans, THM style. They turned out alright, so I figured I’d share.

These beans are not super syrupy liked the canned variety, but if you’ve been avoiding sugar, these will do. I made mine in a small crock pot to help the flavors blend, but you could try baking if you prefer.

I also used some center cut bacon, since it’s the least fatty. There are 7 fat grams in the whole recipe and about 7 servings in the recipe, so it only equates to about 1 g fat per serving. But if that still bothers you, you can leave it out.

For the brown sugar, I use the brown sugar from Gwen’s Nest, but I double the amount molasses and use maple as the flavoring. As a side note, the reason I double the molasses is because I like to temper the xylitol and erythritol with stevia, but still like to keep the molasses taste.

By, the way, this is an E on Trim Healthy Mama!

Ingredients for BBQ Beans:

2 15 oz can of northern beans

1 15 oz can tomato sauce

1/3 cup water

1/2 tsp mustard

1/4 cup plan-friendly brown sugar

1/4 tsp liquid smoke (optional, but gives a smokier flavor)

1 1/2 tsp paprika

1/8 tsp maple flavor

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

4 slices center cut bacon

Cook the bacon slices and let them drain on a paper towel. Drain any extra grease out of the pan and cook the onions. When the bacon is cooled, crumble it into as small pieces as possible.

Place all ingredients into a crock pot, stir and cook on high for 4-5 hours.

      Haha. Yeah. I still wouldn’t do more than 2 servings. 🙂 Are you doing Trim Healthy Mama? These are sugar free, but I still wouldn’t overdo them.
