About Us

We would love to tell you a romanticized story about how this all started with a recipe passed down from generation to generation. The truth is, although our grandma did make some pretty great baklava, it was loaded with sugar and butter.


So, we took matters into our own hands. We decided to make it…better. And nuttier. And healthier. Because it’s 2019 and we don’t want to feel guilty about what goes into our bodies. We, also, don’t need a chemistry degree to recognize its ingredients.


So here it is. Our nuts and filo make the base. A touch of sugar and butter hold it together. And we top it off with our nectar syrup made with cinnamon, rosewater, and orange and lime zest. That's it. Not your grandma’s baklava and frankly, not our grandma’s either. 

Our Mission

To co-create nutritious food using environmentally-sustainable ingredients

Breaking Down The Pillars Of Our Mission Statement


Co-create, not create because YOU are at the heart of what we do. That means you have a stake in every decision The Baklava Project makes.

Every three months we release a new poll on our "PROJECTS" page where we ask you to vote on what project you would like us to complete next. The projects vary. We might ask you to choose what nut filling you would like to see next. Or maybe we'll need your help in choosing an organization that you would like us to donate to. 

Our #1 ingredient is and always will be our protein-rich nuts. With every bite, you armor your body with the right sources of fiber, omega-3 and protein!

Oh and we've removed a good chunk of the sugar that most baklava is loaded with. Instead, we top our baklava with low-caloric ingredients such as rosewater, cinnamon and orange and lime zest.

Nutritious Food

No honey in our baklava! Not now. Not ever. The honey industry is facing a crisis as beekeepers are struggling to reach production quotas. Bees are the victims of unethical practices used to reach those goals. This can change. We, at The Baklava Project, are committed to making such change one baklava tray a time.
