Traditional fruit mince pies made with suet and sugar and eaten each day in the lead up to Christmas are guaranteed to pack on the kilos. Here we use dried fruit, peel with a delicious flax seed pastry for a fresh tasting, lighter pie that still feels like Christmas.
Combine the flours, flax seeds, baking powder and maple syrup in a food processor. Add the omega spread and maple syrup and process until it forms a firm dough and leaves the sides of the food processor bowl clean.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes before rolling.
Grate the apple and sprinkle lemon juice over it. Combine with the other ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 180C
Lightly oil mini pie pans. Roll the pastry out evenly and cut large rounds (10cm) for the pie bases and smaller rounds (8cm )for their lids. Line the pie tin with the pastry and fill with the fruit mince.
To stick the pastry together moisten with water and gently press the pieces together.
Glaze with some low fat milk and bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
Note: Lemon juice sprinkled over chopped apple with help prevent oxidation and the flesh turning brown.
