Raisin sandwiches with almond paste


Raisin sandwiches with almond paste and nuts. These small sandwiches are really delicious at the Christmas breakfast. A healthy breakfast recipe that is easy to make.
The Christmas Breakfast, I always try to make something healthy out of it, because you will eat more than enough (unhealthy) food during these days. That is why I decided that I wanted to make small nut/raisin sandwiches with almond paste. When I still lived with my parents we used to have a Christmas stollen. But it usually was way to much and that is why I wanted to make 1-person portions.
I started enthusiastically, but the dough was really wet and sticky so I didn’t believe that would be a success. I still put them in the oven and hoped for the best. They looked nice and Jens was hungry and wanted to try one. I thought he was joking, but he was really serious when he told me this was the best dish I had ever made. And I can agree because they are really good and taste super nice as well!

Yesterday we already started with celebrating Christmas by eating even more delicious than we normally do. On Christmas evening we eat lamb rack with honey/port sauce for 3 years. And since I discovered a website where they sell organic, natural meat I love it even more. This meat is so good you barely can’t describe it, it is meat from animals that have lived in freedom. They live in the Dutch nature where they only eat natural food and don’t get any antibiotics, hormones or other unnatural additions. And when I ordered the lamb I decided to order beef stew as well. I started making the stew already yesterday afternoon and it was on low heat fire for approximately 4 hours it was so good!

Tonight we will be having our own Christmas evening where we will be cooking 3 courses. The starter is a vegetarian dish of filled chestnut mushrooms, main dish is the lamb rack and for dessert we have a mini apple crumble cheese cake. Tomorrow we will be eating at my parents and the second day of Christmas we will be eating at my parents in law. All by all nice days to relax and enjoy good food and presents.

100% organic ingredients
Ingredients
For the sandwiches
  • 50 grams coconut oil
  • 125 grams raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 5 grams yeast
  • 20 grams honey
  • 150 grams buckwheat flour
  • 100 milliliters almond milk
  • 100 grams unsalted almondsFor the almond paste
  • 125 grams almond flour
  • 100 milliliters honey

How to make it?

Put the coconut oil in a small pan and melt on low heat fire. Make sure it does not boil. When the coconut oil has melted you can set aside the pan.

Next put the raisins in a small bowl with water to let them well.

While the coconut oil melts you can put the egg in a mixing bowl (or the bowl of your mixer). Add the yeast, honey (20 grams), buckwheat flour and the almond milk to it.

When the coconut oil has melted you can add that as well. Mix all ingredients properly into a smooth batter. It will be stick and wet but that is normal.

Let the dough stand in the mixing bowl and put a moist, clean towel on top of it. Set in a warm spot, for example on the heater. Let the dough rise for an hour.

After approximately 45 minutes you can turn on the oven to preheat on 180 degrees Celsius (372 degrees Fahrenheit).

When the dough has risen you can remove the raisins from the water and add to the dough together with the almonds. Knead through the dough to make sure they are well divided.

The dough will remain sticky and wet so that is not really easy to do. The most important thing is that they are well divided through the entire dough.

You can now make the almond paste to fill the sandwiches with later. Mix the rest of the honey (100 milliliters) with the almond flour in a small bowl.

The easiest way to do this is by using a fork. Keep mixing until it becomes a crumbly dough and a sticky almond paste mixture.

Lay a piece of baking paper on a baking tray and make piles of dough. You can make them as big as you like. Cover with a layer of almond paste, as thick as you like.

Because the dough is really sticky, it is not easy to roll it into a sandwich. It is best to add another layer of dough as a top and to close the edges. Continue until you are out of dough, you can make approximately 4 sandwiches with this amount of dough.

Bake the sandwiches for 30 minutes in a preheated oven. Pay attention that the baking time may differ per oven. Let them cool down and you can enjoy these delicious raisin sandwiches, also very nice with some dairy butter on them.
