Whether you like matzah or not; ever tried it or not, you will love this sweet snack. The Passover Granola is the perfect amount of crunch with an equally perfect amount of sweetness. My children love this recipe; it was gone in under two days! My daughter, Leigh, took some to school for a snack, and one of her friends, who had never tried matzah before, asked to try some. Her friend loved it so much that she texted my daughter begging for the recipe. Try it, you will love it!
Best Passover Granola
about 6 cups
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
11/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
5 sheets matzo, crumbled into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup coarsely shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lline a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Whisk together the vegetable oil, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add the matzo, stirring to coat well.
3. Spread the granola evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Add the nuts and coconut and stir to combine. Bake, stirring once, until the matzo browns and the walnuts and coconut are toasted, 10 to 12 minutes more. (The mixture will look wet; don’t worry, it will crisp up as it cools.)
4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately transfer the granola to a large heat-safe bowl. Stir in the dried fruit. Let cool completely, stirring occasionally to break up any large clumps. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
