Gluten-Free Mince Pies

Have yourself a healthy little Christmas with this delicious recipe that won't make you feel like you're missing out on all the festive fun!

Here's my healthy take on one of the ultimate Christmas classics.


For the pastry

15g coconut oil

1 tbsp maple or date syrup

1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

200g ground almonds

For the filling:

150g dried mixed fruit

40g goji berries or dried cranberries

2 finely chopped apples

Zest and juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange

1/2 tsp ground mixed spice

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

2 tbsps brandy or orange liqueur

30g coconut oil


Preheat the oven to 180C

Line a cupcake cake tin with flattened cupcake cases

Put all the ingredients into the food processor to make a dough and cover in cling film.

Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Then remove cling film and roll out the dough till about 4mm thick between two sheets of parchment paper.

Then cut out circles to fit the cake cases in the cake tin.

Cook in the oven for around 5 minutes.

Whilst the pastry was in the oven, time to make the filling!

Put all the filling ingredients into a saucepan, cover and cook on a low heat for about 20 minutes, stir occasionally to stop sticking.

Once the pastry has been taken out of the oven, let them cool down for around 5 minutes and then fill each pastry with the filling!

Once it has been filled, cook in the oven for around 10-12 minutes.
