Homemade Baked Beans

Make your own baked beans at home!

This quick and simple recipe tastes yummy and takes 15minutes from start to end. Making your baked beans at home also means it has less salt and sugar than the tinned version, which is a healthier option for young tummies. You can also jazz the recipe up by adding fresh herbs like parsley, or spices such as smoked paprika.

Enjoy your homemade beans with a slice of toast, or serve it as a side to scrambled eggs and avocado for a big breakfast treat!
