@stoneMason-- If you like baked beans, Swedish brown beans are great for it. Since they're already a little sweet and nutty, the bakes beans turn out even better. I actually use less sugar in my recipe when I use Swedish brown beans for this reason.
If baked beans are not your thing, you could search for some Swedish or Scandinavian recipes using Swedish brown beans. The other name for these beans is "bruno bonor."
Although other types of beans can be used if required, I don't think any other bean is like Swedish brown bean. So if a recipe calls for it, I think it's best to find and use these beans.
