BOOM Primal Will wins on all fronts as well as taste!! Lower calories, carbs and fats you really can’t go wrong! So let’s get makin’ & bakin’ already!For pastry:

  • 115g Rice Flour or Gluten Free flour
  • 70g Yogurt or soya yogurt for to make it vegan
  • 1.5 tbsp truvia (or any sweetener you like)
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp xantham gum
  • 40g melted coconut oil or butter for non vegan option
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg & cinnamon

For filling:

  • 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

  • 50g Almonds
  • 35g “Truvia”
  • 1 Egg white – you could use a chia egg to keep it vegan
  • 10g casein or pea protein for vegan

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 (funny story this is where I realised I don’t own a rolling big and so I sufficed with my hands and a wine bottle/poster holder, looking rather stupid tyring to roll dough with them HA!) CUT your pie shapes and place in muffin tray.
