Bjawia is somewhat similar in concept to a number of other traditional recipes with dried fruits and syrup or honey, like Cypriot pastellaki, which is prepared with peanuts and sesame seeds, or Georgian gozinaki, which is made with a combination of almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, peanuts, as well as flax seeds.
