Mince Pie Crumble Bars

Turn your mincemeat into crumble bars for a twist on mince pies!

I recently forgot that I had some mincemeat ready to go to make mince pies, but this year I fancied using it for something other than mince pies to switch things up a bit. I know mince pies are super easy to make, but these crumble bars are also just as simple. A delicious biscuity bottom, warm spiced mincemeat with a crumbly topping, perfect with a cup of tea. You can make your own mincemeat if you like, there's lot of easy recipes out there and that means you can add whatever you like in it - or grab a jar from any supermarket if you're short of time.

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 30-35 minutes
Serves: 12

NOTE: every ingredient I use is vegan so make sure you check your ingredients if you're following a Vegan lifestyle.


300g Self raising flour
175g Butter - cold
75g Light brown sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
¼ tsp Nutmeg
¼ tsp Mixed spice
1 tsp Salt
3 tbsp oats
450g Mincemeat


✿Preheat the oven to 180℃ and grease and line an 8x8 inch baking tray with baking paper. 
Cube the butter into a large bowl along with the flour and using your fingers rub the butter into the flour until you have a crumb-like consistency.
Add the spices and sugar and mix together to form a dough.
Press half of the dough into the baking tray and save the rest to the side. 
Spoon the mincemeat on top evenly and then crumble the rest of the dough on top of the mincemeat. Sprinkle over the oats then bake in the oven about 30-35 until golden on top.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely in the baking tray before removing. Once cool, cut into 12 slices and serve. Keep at room temperature in an airtight container. Enjoy!
