This recipe makes 9 equal slices and is such a fun bake! We decorated ours with Rainbow Sprinkles to add more colour into our bakes this winter - let us know what you have come up with! 

All of this for only 221 calories per slice.  They also contain 32.5 grams of carbs, 10.7 grams of fat and 2.1 grams of protein.

Mini mince pie bites


 You will need:

1 sheet light puff pastry 

180g light soft cream cheese 

50ml SFC Mince Pie Syrup

90g mincemeat

1. Slice your sheet of pastry into 18 equal squares.

2. Spray the tin with oil (we’ve used our Sunflower Oil Spray!) Add these squares into a muffin tin - one square per cup.

3. Add the light cream cheese to a mixing bowl and use the Skinny Food Co Mince Pie Syrup and mix!

4. Add a spoonful of this mixture into each pastry square and top with the mincemeat.

5. Cook for 25 minutes on a 200 degree heat. 

This is such a great twist on a classic mince pie - a lighter, less calorific version. We just couldn’t say no to second helpings here at Skinny Food HQ!

These light treats contain only 88 calories per bite, along with 11.8 grams of carbs, 3.6 grams of fat and 2.2 grams of protein!

2 sheets light puff pastry

150g SFC Chocolate Orange Spread

(Serves 16) 

 1. Take one sheet of puff pastry to a lined baking tray and add 150g of Skinny Food Co Chocolate Orange Spread.

2. Spread this evenly and top this with the other sheet of puff pastry.

3. Cut out the bottom of your tree - creating a little trunk.

4. Then start to cut out the shape of a tree (a triangle)

5. On both sides, cut into the tree (but not all the way through) to create the branches.

6. Twist these branches like a pastry twist (be careful not to twist these off!)

7. With the leftover pastry from earlier, why not make some decorations for the tree; we added a big star on the top!

8. Cook this for 25 minutes on a 200 degree heat.

There is only 146 calories per person for this show stopper, as well as 17.1 grams of carbs, 8.3 grams of fat and 1.8 grams of protein!
