Servings: 12 tarts


  • 150 grams rice flour
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 50 grams nut butter
  • 25 grams coconut butter
  • 1 egg or flax 'egg' 1 tbsp flax seed mixed with 2 ½ tbsp water
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • 200 grams vegetarian sugar free mincemeat


  • Preheat the oven to 200C (180C for a fan oven).
  • Place the rice flour, xanthan gum, nut butter and coconut butter in a food processor and blend until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the egg and blend again.
  • With the mixer running add one tablespoon of water at a time until the pastry just starts to come together.
  • Lightly knead the pastry until combined, then roll out about 3-4mm thick on a well-floured surface.
  • Use a pastry cutter to cut 12 rounds, each slightly bigger than the indents on your tart tin.
  • Carefully press the pastry rounds into the non-stick tart tin and then fill each one with a rounded teaspoon of the mince meat – be careful not to overfill them otherwise the mincemeat will boil over the side whilst in the oven.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, allow to cool slightly in the tin, then transfer to a cooling rack.
