Introducing my homemade Spicy Butterbeans on Toast.

Ready in just 10 minutes using one-pot and a handful of ingredients they’re the perfect healthy breakfast, brunch or lunch!

Trust me once you have tried these homemade beans on toast you’ll ditch the tinned variety for good!!!

What you’re going to love about these Spicy Butterbeans:

  • 10 minutes to make
  • One-Pot
  • Super easy
  • Handful of ingredients
  • Gluten free & Vegan 

Using these simple ingredients you can get from most supermarkets.


Above all the best part about these homemade baked beans is how quick and simple they are to make using just one-pot!

It really is as easy as adding all the ingredients to a pot and boiling until the sauce thickens, that’s it.

The tamari gives it a real umami deep flavour and the maple syrup sweetens it to perfectly balance out the spices.


The homemade beans are gluten free so I simply toast gluten free bread until crunchy for topping but you could use any bread.


Serve these butterbeans up for breakfast or lunch and the family will love you!

You can always reduce the spice level if you don’t like spicy food.
