I love the soft, crumbly texture of these Raw Mince Pie crusts, based on a combination of coconut flour and cashews. The recipe calls for a dehydrator to firm the crusts, but you can use your oven too, set to the lowest temperature.

Raw Vegan Mince Pies


8 mini pies



  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons raw agave, maple syrup, coconut nectar or date paste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Pinch salt


  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 1/2 cup figs
  • 1/4 cup currants
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw agave, maple syrup, coconut nectar or date paste
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch salt


  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon raw agave, maple syrup, coconut nectar or date paste
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Pinch salt



  1. Process all ingredients in food processor until finely ground, mixture should hold together when pressed firmly into pie tray.
  2. Line cling wrap in pie tray, press mixture firmly into tray and dehydrate for 3 hours at 105º. Remove crusts from cases and dehydrate for a further 8 hours at 105º, on dehydrator mesh sheet. If you don’t have a dehydrator you can use an oven, keep oven door slightly open (you can use a spoon).
  3. Put oven on lowest temperature, you will have to watch the crust cases on and off throughout the drying period as every oven is different and the temperatures vary.


  1. Process all ingredients in food processor until it forms a paste, except the figs.
  2. Add figs and process for 10 seconds until combined.
  3. Place in the fridge over night to marinate.


  1. Process all ingredients in a mini prep, until completely smooth.


  1. Spoon filling mixture into each case.
  2. Top with icing, and a pinch of nutmeg and they are ready to serve.

I really doubted that the "pastry" would hold together but it did. I was also doubtful about cling film getting too warm but it behaved well. I dehydrated the cases on the top of my hot water boiler cum range cooker, not in the cool, lower oven and they firmed up brilliantly. I added grated apple to the fruit fillling and substituted raisins for figs. The best gluten free mince pies I\'ve ever come across! Many thanks!

The article of The Anticancer Project is a synthesis of the scientific literature on the relationship between diet, lifestyle, and cancer, with 14 practical recommendations to prevent cancer and help its treatment. According to the World Cancer Research Fund, most of these recommendations are also precious for improving health in general and for preventing cardiovascular diseases. This is the only text putting together these 14 recommendations, listing anticancer foods, and explaining in a simple, short and comprehensive way how cancer develops, its links with diet and lifestyle, as well as the current state of the scientific research on this subject. www.facebook.com/TheAnticancerProject
