Rustic Jujube Mince Pies



  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup jujube fruits- Soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • Pinch sea salt


  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 heaped tbsp agave
  • Handful jujube fruits - chopped

How to make

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c.

  2. Start by making the filling and combine the raisins, sultanas and jujube fruit in a saucepan and bring to a medium heat. Add a dash of water and leave to cook until the fruit is nicely stewed and really soft.

  3. Add the mixed spice and agave and leave to simmer. Add a little more water if needed.

  4. For the pastry, drain the soaked jujube fruits and add these to a food processor, as well as the buckwheat flour, ground almonds, coconut oil, agave, mixed spice and salt. Blend until well combined.

  5. Lightly grease a cupcake/mince pie tray with coconut oil and use 2/3 of your pastry mix to press into the base of the moulds. Push the mixture around the sides of the moulds to create a little casing to hold the filling.

  6. Add a spoonful of the raisin mixture to each of the pastry cases then, using the remaining pastry mixture, form a flat circular shape and pop this on top.

  7. Decorate with a dried jujube fruit and repeat this for the other mince pies. Bake in the oven for around 11 minutes or until golden.
