Chop the apples into small pieces and put in a saucepan.  Scrape seeds from the vanilla pod and stir in remaining mincemeat ingredients.  Place on medium heat and simmer until the apples are soft.   Put all the crust ingredients in a food processor and blend for a minute until mixed and the dates are broken down.   Roll the mixture on a non-stick surface until 1/2 cm thick.   Preheat oven to gas mark 4/180C and grease muffin or tart tins with coconut oil.  Line with the crust mixture and use any remaining to make stars for the top of the pie.  Add two heaped teaspoons of mincemeat into each pie before placing a star on the top and bake them for 8 minutes. Leave them to cool and then enjoy your healthy mince pies.
