Dare i call these a healthy version of mince pies that you can eat and enjoy and indulge in with no regrets even with your families who don’t believe in healthy eating? I do dare. That is exactly my experience with these amazing ‘mincepies’ not only did i fall in love with them but so did my mum – the ultimate mince pie lover who even asked for the recipe to make some for christmas dinner with the family – if nothing else i thimk that’s my ultimate proof that 1. You can enjoy christmas in a healthy way and 2. Go make these right now!!!

For ‘pastry’ layer:
1 cup walnuts
1 cup almonds
1 teaspoon almond butter
1 tablespoon carob
5 dates
2 tablespoons oats

For filling:
1 apple chopped
Juice of 1/2 orange
Lots!!!! Of cinnamon

Add the walnuts and almonds in food processor, then once turned to powder (or abit bigger) add the oats and cinnamon. Pulse. Add the carob and almond butter and dates and pulse until everything is well combined.

Place in some cupcake cases. Making sure they fit the shape you want.

Chop apples and dates into small pieces. Mix with the rest of the ingredients and place a tablespoonful of the mixture in each cup.
