This baked bean recipe uses orange juice and maple syrup to add sweetness instead of refined sugars and forgoes ketchup in favor of plain diced tomatoes. These diabetic-friendly sugars don’t cause glucose spikes but still add the traditional sweetness that is synonymous with a good bowl of baked beans.
This is an oven method that is very popular in Italy, particularly in Tuscany. The beans are soaked overnight and then rinsed and placed in a pot or casserole for an easy and delicious dish.

We came up with this baked bean idea when we were hired to cater a party for a fashion company that was launching a new line of jeans. The inspiration was cowboys and pots of beans warming over a campfire. For parties, we fry the bacon cups one at a time so they get perfectly crisp and irresistible; for a less time-consuming preparation at home, I suggest baking them. Save the leftover habanero honey to add a sweet kick to barbecue sauce or to glaze grilled or roasted pineapple as a sweet side to grilled fish or chicken.
I honestly think versions of this recipe have been around for a gazillion years. If I'm not mistaken my mom made it for us as kids, too; dishes like this were our idea of "Hamburger Helper." It is requisite that it be served with corn muffins and in keeping with my trip down memory lane I made some from a box of Jiffy mix. No judging!
These baked beans have thick slices of bacon, molasses, brown sugar, and an added punch of spice from Buffalo Tabasco, and are sure to be a barbecue favorite.
