I just love crock pot meals. I am more of a baker than a cook, so I tend to make my cooking recipes super easy. I have had a lot of requests lately for toddler friendly recipes. This is one! When I was a little girl, my favorite meal was baked beans. Of course back then, I ate the pork and beans in a can. No pork in this, but I promise it is delicious! I also have my Healthy Toddler Crackers.
Crock Pot Baked Beans
3 cups dried pinto beans (soaked overnight)
1/2 large sweet onion diced
1 cup tomato paste
3 cups veggie broth
1/4 cup Wholesome Sweeteners coconut sugar
2 T maple syrup
1 T blackstrap molasses
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 apple cored, peeled and diced
Soak the beans overnight. In the morning, add all the ingredients to the crock pot. Cook on high for the first hour and turn down to low for an additional 3 hours. You can cook it longer if you like. The longer it cooks, the more the flavors develop. This made at least 4-5 servings. You can eat it right away, store it for later, or even freeze it. Enjoy!
