Tahini Bread

tahini bread

Tahinov Hatz, also known as Armenian Tahini Bread, is filled with layers of tahini (sesame paste), sugar and cinnamon, to taste. It's pretty simple to create a similar flavor profile with low-carb & keto-friendly ingredients so we did just that using the Dough Mix! These are usually shaped into disks with a flaky interior.  We like to shape these into different forms, similar to the cinnamon rolls or the cheese bouregs. Whatever shape you decide, this low-carb and sugar-free recipe is sure to please!

What You Need:

  • 1 batch of Dough Mix
  • 1 1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste) 
  • 1/2 cup sweetener
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare one batch of the Dough Mix as directed on package.
  2. Roll out dough on flat, nonstick surface (we like to use a silicon mat) into a rectangular shape about 1/4” thick. If using rolling pin, we recommend you place parchment paper on top of dough prior to rolling to avoid sticking.
  3. Combine tahini, sweetener and cinnamon filling.
  4. Evenly spread filling over the dough.
  5. Optional: Place in fridge for 10 minutes for filling to harden (helps make rolling easier & less messy).
  6. Roll up dough tightly and cut into 8-12 equal sized rolls – use a very sharp knife to cut the roll.  Begin in the center by cutting the roll in half, then cut each 1/4-1/2 into half and continue until you have 8-12 pieces.
  7. Use parchment paper, or a greased tray and arrange the rolls. We like to make these in a 12 cavity muffin pan. * for a bolder flavor we like to spread extra tahini on top pre-bake. 
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until brown on top and the outside of the rolls feel crisp, not doughy.
  9. Enjoy!
