Who doesn’t love mince pies? Although without being able to eat a lot of the bits in normal mince pies I’ve decided to make my own vegan mince pies this year. I even made my own vegan mincemeat to go into the pies because I wanted to make them all from scratch without any allergens in them at all! If you’re not vegan and only vegetarian these mince pies are also great, they can be vegetarian mince pies as well if wanted with vegetarian mincemeat. That’s the beauty of vegan recipes, everyone can enjoy them.
These aren’t gluten free mince pies although if you wanted you could easily change the ingridents needed so that they were. I’ll explain more of that in the recipe notes so be sure to give them a read as well. We are planning on having a mostly vegan Christmas and if you’ve not done so yet check out my Christmas vegan cookies as they’re delicious! I’ve added the vegan mincemeat recipe below as well although there will be a seperate post so that if you’re only looking to make vegan mincemeat you’ll be able to use that.
I’ve tried loads of shop brought vegan mince pies this year and I have to say they were okay but these have to be the best mince pies I’ve had, the best vegan mince pies even! If you’re like me and love vegan recipes and vegan food then totally check out my other vegan recipes because some of them are super yummy! I love the Vegan Lemon Drizzle Cake I did as well, I’ve made it a few times and it always goes down a treat!
As always please make sure that you check all ingridents are vegan ingridents before you purchase or use them. I’ve been stung in the past where companies change their products and don’t inform people of the change and it sucks! If you fancy making even more mince pies just double the recipe and you’ve got enough to feed everyone, if you have a big family or just fancy taking them into work for a Christmas treat or Christmas party! Let me know if you try this recipe as I’d also love some vegan feedback! If you need my vegan mincemeat recipe just click here!
