This will be my first Christmas on Slimming World and I know it’s only just October but already every supermarket I go into, there they are, begging to be eaten, the mince pies! So I thought, how could I work round the baked oats theme and create a version that was Slimming World friendly and here it is!! The Slimmince Pie!!

Try them, you won’t be disappointed….

Recipe makes 2 cakes

2 cakes = Daily HeB and are 1.5 Syn each (or 4.5 syns each if not using HeB)

Ingredients

  • 40g Porridge Oats (HeB)
  • 50ml Milk (part of HeA allowance)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • ½ tsp Allspice
  • 1 tsp Orange zest
  • 2 tbsp Sweetener
  • 4 tsp Mincemeat

For the Icing

  • 1 tbsp Quark
  • 2 tsp Sweetener
  • 1 tsp Brandy

Method

  1. Mix the oats, eggs, 2 tablespoons sweetener, milk, orange zest and spices together in a bowl.
  2. Divide the mixture equally between two cupcake cases (silicon ones work best sprayed with a bit of frylight first)
  3. Place 2 tsp of mincemeat into the centre of each case of mixture.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes until golden.
  5. Set aside to cool.
  6. Meanwhile for the icing add the quark, 2 teaspoons of sweetener and brandy to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  7. Place the mixture in the fridge to chill and thicken.
  8. Remove the cakes from the cases, top with quark icing, dust with cinnamon and a curl of orange peel for decoration.

For more cakes just increase the mixtures accordingly. They keep for a few days in an airtight container so make a great treat on cold winter evening with a warm drink.
