I've always loved baked beans, and this Instant Pot Homemade Baked Beans Recipe is a new version that has become a family favorite. It's hard to find a good canned variety that isn't loaded with sugar. So, I created this one that has tons of flavor without the syrupy sweetness of other recipes.

I use my Instant Pot on a regular basis for tons of recipes, but this is a new favorite. I've been adding this over ½ cup of rice and eating for a protein packed lunch, but you could also enjoy it alongside other barbecue items if you prefer. It's super easy, affordable, and delicious.
I use the Instant Pot LUX60, but I've also heard great things about the Crockpot 6qt 8-in-1 Multi-Use Pressure Cooker. You can also cook in your slow cooker, r stovetop, but I find this to be the best easiest cooking method.

Homemade baked beans are a perfect meal in themselves or served in smaller portions alongside your favorite veggies and chicken! You could also make these in a Slow Cooker or stovetop. Just cook on high for 5 hours in the slow cooker, and on medium for 2 hours on the stovetop. It's much easier to use the Instant Pot, but everyone needs options!
