Mince Pie meat mix
(I use Meridian Foods)
Firstly add all the nuts and dates into a food processor/blender and blend on full power for roughly 1 minute.
Now add the chia seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, water and blend again until the mix becomes sticky.
Now place 12 cup cake cases inside a cupcake baking tray (I use a deep cupcake tray to help shape).
Create small balls and place inside each cupcake case
With your thumbs press down the ball and create a cup (make sure to not make this too thin otherwise it will fall apart when eating).
Place in the fridge for 1 hour (the longer the better) to allow the base to set.
Add a teaspoon of the meridian mince pie mix into the middle.
I like to top mine with either pomegranate seeds or pink lady apple cut into shapes. Then finally a sprinkling of ground almonds or coconut.
Tip: Try heating the mince pie filling before adding to your base!
