An Incredible Calorie-Saving Christmas Treat

They might be calorie saving, but boy do these taste great! No sooner had we finished baking one batch, we were getting a second tray into the oven! 

The fruit and spices marry beautifully with the rich and indulgent brownie, creating a soft and beautifully moist Christmas mouthful! To keep the carbs, sugar and calories low, you should make your own mincemeat. Follow our quick and super simple recipe for low-sugar mincemeat that still packs the same flavour!

Low-Cal Brownies

An average chocolate brownie comes in at around 250 calories and an average mince pie weighs in at around 150 kcal. Our Christmassy mince pie/brownies come in at just 89 calories each (for a huge 70-75g portion!). 

The Mincemeat recipe is:

  • 1 apple, grated
  • 100g of mixed dried fruit
  • 100g of cranberries
  • The juice of 2 clementines
  • 10g of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of sweetener (erythritol)

Just add everything to a saucepan and simmer until the orange juice has reduced and the whole mix is sticky and unctuous. The recipe will keep for 5 days in a sealed jar in the fridge.
