A Vegan Christmas – Easy Tasty Mincemeat Slice Recipe

Vegan mincemeat slice

Christmas is just around the corner so it’s time to get thinking about a few festive treats! As a vegan, there’s a limited selection of Christmas treats to enjoy in the supermarkets and shops… but that’s OK, because homemade is always so much better anyway!

First on my Vegan Christmas list are these gorgeous crumbly mincemeat slices. They’re quick and easy to make and can be frozen so you can double your batch sizes and keep rolling out the goods in the run-up to Christmas Day!

Vegan Mincemeat Slice Recipe

310g/11oz Self-Raising Flour
225g/8oz Pure sunflower spread (or dairy-free “butter”)
50g soft brown sugar or golden caster sugar
2 tsp mixed spice
400g vegetarian/vegan mincemeat (around one jar)
Flaked almonds (optional)

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180C/350F and prep your tray bake tin (11″ x 7″) by greasing and lining.
Crumble the fat and flour together into breadcrumb with your fingers, or pulse in the food processor until your mixture has the texture of breadcrumbs. Then add the sugar and mix thoroughly.
Divide the mixture in half and use one half as your base – press firmly into the tray.
Spread the jar of mincemeat over the base evenly.
Add the mixed spice to the remaining breadcrumbs mixture and spread evenly as the top layer over the mincemeat. At this point you can also add the flaked almonds if desired.
Bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes on the middle shelf.
Remove, dust with icing sugar if desired and slice into squares or rectangles… and enjoy with a cup of spicy mulled wine!
