About this recipe: Most recipes for baked beans, especially those that come in tins, are extremely high in sugar content. With approx nine teaspoons per tin, this is way too much sugar for those unfortunate sufferers of diabetes type 2 and awkward for type 1 with judging their insulin levels. As a result most diabetics shy away or sometimes go for a reduced sugar and salt version. I hope my recipe, diabetic spicy baked beans with sausage and smoked bacon, will help. I think it absolutely rocks, not just in taste but also style. Served with a small bread roll or slice of toast. Mmmm!
If you would like to make the beans with a little more of a spicy kick add another teaspoon of my tongue-tastic diabetic piri piri seasoning. Or a little cayenne pepper will do the trick.
In place of the diabetic sugar you can use 3 to 4 teaspoons of granulated sugar.
