Last week I shared my deliciously moreish Cranberry, Coconut and Chia Seeds Oat Bites. They were enjoyed so much I decided to add a bit more of a Christmas twist to them. After having my first mince pie of the season on Sunday I am hooked. We all know that pastry is not great for us so I decided to combine my oat bites with mince pies and created these addictive snacks!
This is what I did...
Mincemeat Oat Bites
225g porridge oats
25g ground almonds
4 tbsp chia seeds
100g golden syrup
1tsp vanilla essence
2tsp mixed spice
Pre heat the oven to 200C
1 - Place the oats, ground almonds, chia seeds and mixed spice into a large mixing bowl
2 - Beat the eggs together and add the milk and vanilla essence
3 - Pour the liquids onto the dry ingredients and add the golden syrup
4 - Stir until all of the ingredients are evenly combined
5 - Line a small baking tray and spoon on half of the oats mixture
6 - Spoon on the mincemeat, ensuring that you have an even covering
7 - Add the second half of the oats mixture over the top on the mincemeat layer
8 - Place in the centre of the pre heated oven and bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until golden brown
9 - Remove from the baking tray and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing
These oat bites will keep you coming back for more, I will warn you they are truly irresistible!
I used Aldi's Specially Selected Brandy Infused Luxury Mincemeat which is so rich and fruity and it went perfectly with the oats.
