Ingredients List:

  • 1 package vegan phyllo dough, thawed
  • ⅔ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup Pistachios
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 cup Whole Natural Almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

  • Syrup Ingredients:
  • 5 ounces brown rice syrup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup crushed Nuts for garnish (optional)
  • Out of all the Middle Eastern desserts the best one is fresh baklava. Baklava is not a dessert that many vegans get to enjoy since the traditional baklava recipe calls for lots of butter and honey, but we have a recipe that even vegans can enjoy!


    1. Thaw out the phyllo dough according to instructions.

    2. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

    3. In a saucepan melt coconut oil, then use just enough to cover the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish.

    4. In a food processor crush all Nuts into small pieces.

    5. Place two sheets of phyllo in pan and brush with melted coconut oil. Next add a light layer of nuts on top. Continue this process until there are about 7-10 sheets left, then continue to brush each layer of phyllo on top of the other.

    6. Place in the oven and bake for 40-60 minutes, or until the top is brown.

    7. While it is baking, put all syrup ingredients into a saucepan. Bring syrup ingredients to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and allow to simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

    8. Once the baklava is fully cooked, slowly pour the syrup over the baklava. You may choose to garnish with additional crushed nuts.

    9. Let the baklava soak for at least 5 hours. Store in an airtight container and enjoy.

    This Vegan Baklava may appear rich at first glance. However, it is not overly sweet. The coconut oil gives it a lighter result than if you used butter or ghee. The nuts bring in the perfect contrast to the light and airy texture of the phyllo dough. The syrup softens the baklava but there is still the essence of the light flakiness of the phyllo dough. This Vegan Baklava will be a hit for all occasions.
