1.5 tbsp truvia (or any sweetener you like)
Pinch salt

I used a pre made organic mincemeat 100g ( mine was vegan though check the label to be sure)

For Topping – use either more pastry or my sugar free marzipan

60g Almonds
35g “Truvia”
1 Egg white


SET your oven to 190C

SIFT flour and all powders in to a big bowl

ADD yogurt and combine till it forms bread like crumbs

STIR in the melted coconut oil to form a big dough

WRAP in clingfilm and leave 10-15mins

ROLL it out with a rolling pin


CUT your pie shapes and place in muffin tray.

FILL with filling

SLAM them in the oven for 15mins

If you want a pastry top follow the next steps and put the top on before cooking

For sugar free marzipan BOSH all ingredients in a blender


ROLL out and cut into shape

PLACE on top



GRILL 4-5mins


BOOM!!! Epic tasting and quick, cut into slices and serve with gooey melted cheese or tuppaware up and take to work to make you the envy of all your colleagues!
