Mince Pies

The festive season is approaching so I’ve been making some Christmas desserts for No Count. And oh wow!  These are delicious!  They are only small which is why I used three of them in one dessert but what a great dessert to have on No Count during the festive season.  Just make sure you don’t eat them all in one go:-)  On No Count, you can have 1 for 1sp, 2 for 3sp and 3 for 4sp.  If tracking, they are 3 points each which is a lot considering the size of them.


Ingredients (makes 12):

  • 85g oatmeal
  • 80g blitzed oats
  • 2 flat tbsp Splenda, Truvia or other sweetener that is free on No Count
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • the zest and juice of one lemon
  • 108g mincemeat
  • 30g plain flour for rolling out the dough (5g per person is free)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Place the oatmeal, oats, Splenda, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl and mix together.
  3. Add the lemon zest and juice, olive oil and 50ml of hot water and mix. Bring together into a ball and place on the plain flour, ready to roll out.
  4. Roll out the dough and then use a pastry cutter to cut out 12 circles. (I used a pastry cutter that was 6cm in diameter and made some biscuits with the dough that was left over.)
  5. Place into a mini muffin tray and gently press them down so that they fit into the mould.
  6. Put 9g of mincemeat into each one. (I balanced the tray on the scales – see pic below.)
  7. Bake in the oven for 13 – 15 minutes.
  8. Enjoy hot or cold!
