Rustic Jujube Mince Pies

Serves: 7 // Prep time: 30min // Cook time: 11 min // Skill: medium



1 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 ground almonds

1/2 cup jujube fruits- Soaked in hot water for 10 minutes

2 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp agave syrup

1/2 tsp mixed spice

Pinch sea salt


1 cup raisins

1/2 cup sultanas

1 tsp mixed spice

1 heaped tbsp agave

Handful jujube fruits - chopped


Preheat your oven to 180c.

Start by making the filling and combine the raisins, sultanas and jujube fruit in a

saucepan and bring to a medium heat. Add a dash of water and leave to cook until

the fruit is nicely stewed and really soft.

Add in the mixed spice and agave and leave to simmer. Add a little more water if

For the pastry, drain the soaked jujube fruits and add these to a food processor, as

well as the buckwheat flour, ground almonds, coconut oil, agave, mixed spice and

salt. Blend until well combined.

Lightly grease a cupcake/mince pie tray with coconut oil and use 2/3 of your pastry

mix to press into the base of the moulds. Push the mixture around the sides of the

moulds to create a little casing to hold the filling.

Add a spoonful of the raisin mixture to each of the pastry cases then, using the

remaining pastry mixture, form a flat circular shape and pop this on top.

Decorate with a dried jujube fruit and repeat this for the other mince pies. Bake in

the oven for around 11 minutes or until golden.
