The Great Northern Beans in a Slow Cooker is one of my favorites. It’s easy to prepare, and still very tasty.

I love coming home to the smell of cooking dinner and knowing that I can enjoy a delicious meal in a few hours.

This great recipe for northern beans in the slow cooker is very simple. Simply place the beans in a slow cooker with water or broth and then let them cook for a few hours. You can add whatever spices you want – I usually add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

But you can add as many as you want – it’s really customizable.

Once the beans are cooked, you can serve them any way you like. I usually like to eat them as a side dish, but they are also excellent as a main dish. It is also very healthy – it is full of protein and fiber.
