Christmas Crumble Bars

These are a lovely change from the classic mince pie and suitable for those who are gluten free (they can also be made vegan by switching the butter for coconut oil). They are sweet, salty and buttery and super quick to make - such a winner for Christmas!

Makes 24 bars

35 minutes


350g oats

120g ground almonds

100g coconut or brown sugar

250g salted butter, chopped and melted (or ghee for those with lactose intolerance)

600g mincemeat

4 tbs pecans, chopped

Method for Christmas Crumble Bars

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 degrees F.

In a large bowl mix the oats, almonds, sugar and butter.

Tip 2/3 of the mixture into a 30cm x 20cm baking dish and press it down with the back of a wooden spoon until it forms a solid base. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

Spread the mincemeat evenly across the base and then follow with the remaining oat mixture and the pecans.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until golden on top.

Once cool, cut the crumble with a sharp knife that has been dipped into hot water.

If you have any leftovers, these bars keep well in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
