Mincemeat Crumble Squares

If you fancy something a little different to a mince pie but still want a little Christmassy treat, then these are perfect. I adapted the recipe from my raspberry crumble square recipe. This is such a super simple treat to make all the taste of a mince pie with no pastry making in sight!

You will need:

1 cup of plain flour

1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 cup of oats

1/2 cup of light brown soft sugar

1/2 cup of butter

1/4 tsp of cinnamon

1/4 cup chopped hazlenuts

1 jar of good quality mincemeat

1 8 inch square baking tin

Method:

* Preheat oven to 180C/ 350F/ Gas 4, grease and line your tin.

*  Place the flour, bicarb and cinnamon into a large bowl. Add the sugar, hazelnuts and oats, mix together with your fingers to break up an lumps of sugar.

* Add the butter and rub together until evenly combined.

* Place 2 cups of the oaty mix into the tin and press down firmly until it’s packed in and even.

* Spread a generous layer of mincemeat, you may find the mincemeat won’t spread so just dollop little spoonfuls until the base is covered.

* Press the remaining oats over the top

* Bake for 40- 45 minutes until golden brown

* Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
