300g fine plain wholemeal flour
2 tsp cinnamon
150g butter (soft)
100g caster sugar
12 tbsp orange juice
2 medium apples
50g goji berries (or non-sweetened dray cranberries or more sultanas)
1/4 tonka bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract
the juice of an orange
the zest of 1/2 an orange (organic)
the zest of 1/2 a lemon (organic)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
a pinch of nutmeg
a pinch of cloves
butter for the tray (optional)
some grated coconut flakes for decoration
12-hole muffin tray/small pie tray
Preheat the oven to 175C.
Note: Rub a little butter around the insides of your tray (where possible, avoid using non-stick cookware).
Optional: Once cooled down, sprinkle some coconut flakes on top.
Tip: If you don’t have goji berries or don’t like them, you can replace them with the same amount of sultanas or dried cranberries (without added sugar).
We are using wholemeal flour for this recipe. Wholemeal flour is ground cereal grain from which only the hard outer layer has been removed. The grain husk is rich in fibre and vitamins, and there are also healthy nutrients inside. The most important substances in whole grains are B vitamins, minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium, and secondary plant compounds. There is increasing evidence that a diet high in fibre reduces breast cancer risk.
We tried to reduce the sugar content and didn’t use any added sugar for the mince pie filling. This helps reduce the number of calories. Consuming too much sugar can promote weight gain, and being overweight increases breast cancer in men and post-menopausal women.
