Healthy low sugar baked beans – slow cooker – 107 calories

IMG_0626I loved baked beans, but not so happy with all the sugar that is added – the low sugar variety just don’t taste as nice to me!

So here’s a healthy version of baked beans – I make a huge batch in the slow cooker and freeze them in batches of 2 portions.  Easily defrosted overnight and added to breakfast (as I did this morning!)  408 calories for this breakfast!

Despite the mention of Tabasco, paprika and lots of mustard, the beans have a nice “kick” to them, but aren’t hot or spicy.
