Passover Smoked Salmon Bites

Passover Smoked Salmon Bites

Why did I not think of this before? Passover Smoked Salmon Bites are the perfect appetizer, snack, or lunch idea that only take 5 minutes to prepare. My daughter, Leigh, thought this was a brilliant idea, and I agree. She and my son, Zachary, came home from school and ate these so fast that I barely had any left to serve for appetizers to my hubs. Oh well, he did have one, and he thought these Smoked salmon bites are a wonderful light starter or refreshing snack. Feel free to half or double this recipe–they go really fast! I know what you’re thinking…Smoked salmon has sodium. Yes, that is true, but it also is a good source of protein, Vitamin B, Vitamin D and magnesium. These are very pretty too and a great way to use up your leftover matzah or use matzah even if you’re not celebrating Passover.

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!

 

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!

Passover Granola Recipe

When my friend, Amy, told me about her Passover Granola recipe, I was very intrigued. I had never heard of granola for Passover before, and I thought, “what a novel idea.” She sent the recipe to me, and I tweaked a few things, cutting down the oil and butter and adding the dried fruit bits and pecans. I was so thrilled by the results because it is truly hard to find Passover snacks and dessert ideas. Serve this Passover Granola on its own, sprinkled on top of nonfat Greek yogurt or topped with almond milk.

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.
