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
- Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare one batch of the Dough Mix as directed on package.
- 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.
- Combine tahini, sweetener and cinnamon filling.
- Evenly spread filling over the dough.
- Optional: Place in fridge for 10 minutes for filling to harden (helps make rolling easier & less messy).
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until brown on top and the outside of the rolls feel crisp, not doughy.
