Baked beans. They sound kinda old fashioned, don’t they? They definitely remind me of growing up and although they weren’t really a staple at my house, they always made an appearance at family gatherings. The baked beans I remember though, came straight out of a can, onto the stove and on to our plates.

This simple recipe skips the sugar typically found in traditional baked beans and relies only on molasses to sweeten it naturally instead. It only takes a minute to throw together and when it comes out of the oven it’s a delicious, sweet and savoury flavour sensation!

I’d recommend enjoying this as a healthy dip, added to burritos or scooped on top of a big, fresh salad. We ate them first as a dip for a Sunday afternoon snack and I used the leftovers in salads for the next few days.
