Passover Brownie A La Mode

Passover Brownie with Greek Yogurt

Passover is only a few weeks ahead, and I know many of my readers are always looking for more Passover desserts to diversify their holiday cooking. This Passover Brownie A La Mode is really awesome to serve during the week of Passover. The Passover Brownie mixture is made with nonfat Greek yogurt which adds nice moistness to the texture and protein in the brownies. Serve on the brownie on their own with a glass of milk or with frozen yogurt or any nondairy whipped topping. One of my favorite Passover Brownies recipes ever are The Best Passover Brownies which I created five years ago. It’s still a huge winner! For some of my other favorite passover desserts, click here for Passover Granola, Truffles, Mandel Bread and more.

The Best Passover brownies

Best Passover Granola

Passover Granola

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!

 

4 Ingredient Passover Bars

4 Ingredient Passover Bars

 

I know I am flipping from Passover recipes to Easter recipes this week but with these two holidays this weekend, what can I do since I am celebrating both! I made these 4 Ingredient Passover Bars today and had to post them because they are great for anytime, anywhere and are gluten-free! You can use pecans, almonds or walnuts and your favorite type of chocolate chips. Don’t add any water to the batter; just mix well and pat down in the pan. I recommend using parchment paper for easy removal and slicing. Happy Passover and if you’re not celebrating, but looking for a flourless, gluten-free, grain free and dairy free recipe, here you go!

Just in time for Passover, this healthy Berry Peach Smoothie recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. Feel free to use fresh or frozen fruit, but don’t forget frozen fruit is just as healthy as fresh. Frozen fruits are picked at their peak and then flash frozen. This smoothie is a great way to kick off the week. It’s filled with natural antioxidants and protein!

It is two weeks until Passover. I can’t believe it. So many people are on the ball and have already been emailing and messaging me for recipe ideas.

Here are some of my own recipes along along with a few other personal top 10 Passover dessert recipes. The photo aboove of Fudgy Chocolate Walnut Cookies via Food & Wine

Matzo Bark: Easy Passover Dessert

It’s Passover week, so you must have a simple recipe for Matzo Bark. It’s not only super easy to prepare, but it’s rich and a lot goes a long way. Adults and kids will enjoy this as a Passover dessert or snack this holiday week. Feel free to make it with or without the almonds since it’s great both ways. Thank you to my friend Nancy who shared a version of this recipe with me and to my daughter Leigh, who did a great job making this for this blog post. Love you girl!

10 Best Passover Desserts

I can’t believe that Passover starts on Monday night. I have been receiving a bunch of emails asking me for Passover recipes and ideas. I thought I would share 10 Passover desserts that I really like and are unique. I will start with my Passover Granola which is actually snack, dessert or breakfast, but it’s still sweet goodness that the entire family will love. Hope you enjoy and have a great Passover if you are celebrating this year!

Passover Berry Crisp

It seems bizarre to showcase Passover and Easter recipes already, but these holidays come early this year, just a few weeks away. I know people start planning their Passover menus ahead of time, and Passover desserts are always a challenge. Last year, I made this Passover Berry Crisp, and it came out great. I ended up making it several times, and I am positive it will be on this year’s list. Feel free to substitute 5 to 51/2 cups of apples or your favorite fruit for the berries. Happy spring holidays!

 

No-Bake Mini Healthy Bites: Gluten-Free and Passover

I love to experiment with “No-Bake” cookie recipes, especially those that are gluten-free, Paleo Diet or perfect for Passover which starts this week. I was excited to make this recipe for No-Bake Mini Energy Bites which I made and tweaked from a recipe I saw on the blog, “Gimme some Oven”.  Her recipe is great, but if you want a Passover or gluten-free version, try grinding your favorite nuts and omitting the oatmeal. These are incredible, and I honestly could not keep my hands out of the container. My 3 kids had absolutely no idea there was flaxseed in them. Feel free to use almond butter instead of peanut butter and any of your favorite nuts.

Passover S’mores

Passover is coming up this week, and I know so many are always looking for new, fun recipe ideas, especially to please the kids. I made these Passover S’mores a few years ago, and they have become a Passover staple for my three children. Who doesn’t love s’mores? Just use regular sizes matzo and break it into pieces, or use the new mini matzo that is so popular this year instead of graham crackers, and you’ll have some happy kids (and adults).
