I adore mince pies, with rich buttery pastry and my homemade mincemeat but not everyone likes mince pies, they may say “ too much pastry” or “ too much mincemeat” or “too fattening”. I have family members that are celiac and need gluten free recipes so this recipe was developed for them to eat also mincemeat slices are a healthy whole food alternative to mince pies that I think you will love. You can make them with gluten free porridge oats and flour or use the usual oats and flour.
If you follow my mincemeat recipe this bake is also vegan.
The mincemeat used in this recipe is my “ Quick and easy mincemeat” that I developed to use when I was on the Christmas Bakeoff, I liked it so much that I make it as my “ go to “ mincemeat.
As this is a cooked recipe the mincemeat can be stirred into ice cream for a delicious desert or folded into an Eaton mess recipe instead of soft fruits.
