When life hands you Almond Flour Tortillas, make baklava!--which is exactly what Jamie (our very own Siete Telenovela star) did.

Growing up in the Rio Grande Valley, Jamie knows a thing or two about living "The Hyphen." The Hyphen is the symbolic expression of our culture, being “not fully one thing or the other, [but being] its own identity.” As a Mexican-Lebanese American, Jamie experienced the in-between by gathering with her familia to make this scrumptious fusion-food dessert.

Check out Jamie's inclusive take on a traditional Lebanese family recipe below using our Grain Free Almond Flour Tortillas!

  • 1/8 cup Caster Sugar⁠
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon⁠
