Easy Holiday Treat: Mince Pie Crumble Bars

Easy Holiday Treat: Mince Pie Crumble Bars

Now I'm not a fan of mince pies in the slightest, but I absolutely love making them and the smell of the mincemeat. On one cold Christmassy evening I was sat scrolling though TikTok and come across a Christmas flapjack, which was essentially a basic flapjack with all the dried fruits and spiced chucked in for good measure Queue light bulb moment, why don't I make a flapjack mixture base, mincemeat middle and a flapjack crumb topping.

These delicious Mince Pie Crumble Bars are the perfect tea time treat to have with a cuppa or even served as a desert with a dollop of cream or ice cream.

To make this recipe you will need...


  • 175 g Rolled Oats
  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 150 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 175 g Butter (cold & cubed)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Jar Of Mincemeat (I used a jar of pre-made but you can make your own if you have time)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 and line a 8x8 square tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add the rolled oats, plain flour, sugar, baking powder and unsalted butter.
  3. Rub the ingredients together, until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs and there are no large lumps of butter left.
  4. Pour 500g of the mix into the lined tin and press down firmly.
  5. Pour the mincemeat onto the base crumble and spread evenly.
  6. Sprinkle over the rest of the crumble mix
  1. Bake the bars in the oven for 35-45 minutes, or until golden.
  2. Leave the bars to cool fully before portioning. (once cooled slightly, I put mine in the refrigerator to help firm them up a bit more).

And there you have it my super yummy, Mince Pie Crumble Bars. If you like mince pies but fancy something a little different, these sweet treats are definatly for you. Why not add a little bit of lemon or orange zest to the mixture to have a little tangy hit.

If you make this dish, why not send me a picture on Instagram using the #acountrygirlskitchen so I can go over and show it some love.
