Slow Cooker Baked Beans With Bacon

I really just wanted to offer you a gap to start out singing ‘Beans, beans the magical fruit’ if you felt moved to try to to so because I wasn’t getting to make that the headline of this post albeit it’s true!

But really, these slow cooker baked beans with bacon are very easy then delicious that they themselves are deserve alittle fireworks show. And there’s just something magical about smokey, sweet and sticky that’s hard to resist, don’t you think? Put these on the table at your next barbecue and watch the sparks of attraction fly.

In the winter, there’s nothing better than baking a pot of sweet and saucy beans within the oven to warm the house. Their smell is intoxicating because of the bacon and syrup. But within the summer, the last item i would like to try to to is heat up the oven so I’ve adapted my favorite baked bean recipe to use the slow cooker instead. And I’m so glad I did because these are now my go-to set-it-and-forget-it picnic and potluck offering. 

Cooking the bacon and onions before adding them to the slow cooker could seem fussy but trust me, you get a way better flavor because the onions mellow when cooked within the reserved bacon fat and you get a thicker sauce. Cooking the bacon first also means you won’t have any pale rubbery blobs of bacon in your beans such as you do once you open a can of pork of beans from the shop. Yeah, just no.

Slow Cooker Baked Beans With Bacon


  • 3 slices bacon, chopped
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. molasses
  • ½ cup ketchup (such as Tessemae’s or Primal Kitchen made without added sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup (or less if your ketchup has added sugar)
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed (yields about 3 ½ cups beans) 
  • 2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water


  1. Cook chopped bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 7-8 minutes until almost crisp. Add onion to the pan with the bacon and cook an additional 4-5 minutes until the onion starts to soften. Remove from heat.
  2. Transfer bacon and onion mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients and stir gently to combine.
  3. Set slow cooker temperature to LOW and cook 4 hours, stirring a few times during cooking time.

For finer eating, falafels may be served as a part of a mezze platter, beside dish, roast veggies, quinoa and sauce (especially spread sauce).

Bake in the oven on a baking tray for about 45 minutes on a high heat. When done, take out and leave to cool until you are ready to make the falafels.
