My husband loved these. If you like sweet and saucy bean recipes, then this is right up your alley. Didn’t have the collard greens so I had to substitute Kale in the video demonstration. I also lacked molasses so I substituted with equal parts maple syrup. This was easy to make and made a great side dish to our dinner entrée.

I like the collard greens with this and would probably like spinach too but since I liked it with the collards I'll continue to use that. I didnt add the molasses either since there was some already in the BBQ sauce I used. Someone suggested Kraft Light but check your ingredients. Just because it says light doesnt mean its healthy. I use Stubbs Original. Compared to Kraft it does not have any sucralose or preservitives and as a bonus, less sodium.
I also used spinach instead of collard greens. Really good. I left the molasses out since I'm diabetic and didn't want that sugar.
As for the sauce, I used the original blend of the Stubbs All-Natural. It only has 4-5g of sugar compared to 9g+ from Kraft. Very tasty.
I substituted spinach for collards and it was great. It tasted even better the next day. You can't beat this for a quick meal without all of the muss and fuss. I have a few picky eaters in my family and they all enjoyed it.
I only used one can of beans bc I was making it for one person for the week just seemed like a lot of beans but I shluld have cut down on the bbq sauce as well. It just didnt seem so healthy to me since we are using bbq sauce in it but it was tasty
