Mince Pies
A Christmas tradition, they're a love it or hate it! These #dangerouslytasty version of the Christmas classic are guaranteed to convert even the biggest of mince pie haters out there!


200g almond flour

3 tbsp almond butter

3 tbsp maple syrup

¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

Dash of plant based milk

1 red apple, chopped into bite sized pieces

30g coconut sugar

200g dried fruit (we used a vine fruit mix)

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

½ tsp ground mixed spice

½ tsp ground allspice

¼ tsp ground cloves

Juice or 1 orange


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180
  2. We’re going to start by making the pastry. In a bowl add the almond flour, almond butter, maple syrup and bicarbonate of soda and mix until well combined.
  3. You may need to add in a dash of mylk to reach a dough consistency, we ended up adding around 1 tbsp.
  4. Once you have your dough, place it in the fridge to firm up whilst you get on with making the mince pie filling.
  5. To make the mincemeat filling add the chopped red apple, coconut sugar, dried fruit, spices and juice of 1 orange to a medium sized saucepan.
  6. Place the saucepan containing the mincemeat ingredients onto a low heat and leave to simmer for around 10 minutes, or until the mixture is soft.
  7. Next, get your dough out of the fridge and roll until around the thickness of a pound coin. Then cut out 8 circles (these will be the casing) and 8 small stars (for the top).
  8. Place the circles in the holes of a muffin tray and fill each cup with around a teaspoon of the mincemeat filling. Once each pie is filled, place one of the pastry stars on each pie.
  9. Bake in the oven for around 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  10. Once the mince pies are baked, leave to cool in the tin before carefully removing.
  11. Enjoy! We also love these with a dollop of dairy free ice cream or coyo on top, yum!

One mouthful and your taste buds will be belting out all your favourite Christmas tunes!
