First and foremost I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I was such a lucky girl, Santa brought me everything I could have wished for and more.
The days post-Christmas bring one thing in abundance - leftovers. In my house the only thing left over, until yesterday, was half a jar of mincemeat. Personally I can't stand the stuff, but the rest of my family like it, and it won't interfere with my weight loss that way.
So I made these:
Mincemeat Cake Bars
Now I stupidly forgot to take a photo and now they have all been eaten/given away, but I can promise you, well I was told, they are divine. Plus the recipe is uber simple!
250g wholemeal plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
475g mincemeat, use the vegetarian variety
2 tablespoons golden syrup
Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius/gas mark 4. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Spoon mixture into a rectangular shallow baking tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
Allow to cool in the tin and cut into 20 snack-size bars.
