I adore Mince Pies. If there was an AA meeting for a Mince Pie addiction, I’d be attending every week… actually thinking about it, isn’t that what a Slimming World group is? These 1 Syn Mince Pies are a real treat!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Slimming World groups up and down the country are hosting the earliest Christmas parties ever! So we thought we’d help everyone out and come up with some fantastic low syn canapés.
The inspiration for this recipe comes from a lady called Justine, from our Facebook group. She asked for some help with what to take for her group taster, and wanted to do something with mincemeat. So I gave her an idea, and thought to myself, this would make a fabulous recipe & here I am typing it up.
How Many Syns Are In These 1 Syn Mince Pies
Syn values of these 1 Syn Mince Pies are pretty easy to work out too! For all 12 Mince Pies it comes to a total of 9 syns. We always round up, so these are 1 Syn each.
- 12 discs of wholemeal bread at 2mm is approx 45g – 4.5 syns (we’re working on the proviso that 60g of wholemeal bread = 6 syns)
- 20g of Baking Apple – 0.5 syns
- 2 tbsp Mincemeat – 4 syns
It’s not often a recipe “works” the first time around. It usually takes us a few rounds of getting things right., so I’m pretty chuffed!

The second essential ingredient is Frylight! The lid of the bottle is just the right size to cut out the discs of bread. And we need the frylight itself to stop things from sticking, there’s nothing worse than things sticking to oven trays!
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Butter flavour is ideal for this 1 Syn Mince Pies recipe.
And the third essential ingredient is a decent rolling pin. You need to make sure the bread is an even thickness. We use one of these nifty rolling pins from Joseph Joseph, which you can find on Amazon.
