Christmas Mince Pies
Delicious vegan fruit mince pies with a healthy superfoods twist. You’ll love these healthy Christmas essentials naturally sweetened with apples, oranges and dates instead of refined sugar, and using organic 100% pure goldenberries and goji berries – better for you than traditional raisins and sultanas, with a more nuanced flavour.
1 granny smith apple, sliced
2 medjool dates, finely chopped
1/2 cup Power Super Foods Crunchy Goldenberries or Goldenberries
1/2 cup Powder Super Foods Goji Berries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup filtered water
1 tsp orange zest
2-3 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp coconut oil
8-10 small tartlet cases
Shredded coconut, flaked almonds and star anise, to top (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Add more water if the mixture starts to stick to the saucepan.
Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Spoon a small amount of the mince into the pastry cases.
Top with desiccated coconut and toasted flaked almonds.
Decorate with star anise (optional).
Serve and enjoy.
