If you’re looking for a tasty treat that reminds you of all things festive and isn’t traditional festive baking like a normal mince pie then you should give these Mince Pie Flapjacks a go.
A very simple twist on a typical flapjack but it tastes just like mince pies without being overpowering. This mincemeat recipe is definitely a great twist on a classic recipe that the whole family can get in the kitchen and help to make – and enjoy eating afterwards.
What to do with leftover mincemeat?
If you have homemade mincemeat left over in January, after Christmas, then this Christmas flapjack recipe is definitely one for you. It’s such a great recipe to use up a jar of mincemeat at any time of the year and you could even add some extra dried fruit too if you wanted.
We absolutely love Christmas and these Mince Pie Flapjacks are a great little treat that you can eat throughout the festive season and beyond. They keep well in an airtight container for a few days and if you find part way through the year that you have a jar of mincemeat left over then these mince meat flapjacks are a great way of using it up. Plus, the whole family love them.
These Christmas flapjacks aren’t a healthy treat but you really cannot beat that wonderful taste of Christmas at any time of the year. They’re such an easy flapjack recipe and a fantastic British treat.
Sometimes we drizzle icing or melted chocolate over the top once these leftover mincemeat flapjacks have cooled after baking. This adds another level of flavour that we all really enjoy. We’re going to be trying mincemeat slices soon and apple and mincemeat flapjacks next with some dried apple chunks added to the mix.
Festive food really is a huge part of our Christmas at home, something we plan, create and enjoy throughout December. The children love nothing more than getting stuck in baking festive treats and it definitely makes a change from our usual slow cooker creations!
