Passover Granola

Passover Granola

It’s day 3 of baby week and I’m honored to turn today’s reins over to another fabulous mommy-blogger, Alma Klein. Alma’s blog is awesome and can be found in my blog roll and here. Alma has graciously agreed to share her new Passover Granola recipe with us. I cannot wait to try it next year! Here’s what Alma says:

I’m semi-famous for my homemade granola, which I’ve bagged and handed out as holiday gifts two years running. But regular granola isn’t Kosher for Passover, store-bought K for P cereals are pretty inedible, and a girl can only eat so much matzo brei. So last year I figured out how to make a Passover version of my favorite breakfast treat. And although my 2 year old is a bigger fan of eating granola, my 5 year old volunteered to stay up a little bit later tonight to help make it.

Prep time: 8 minutes  Cook time: 30 minutes

6 Kosher for Passover matzo
¾ cup raw slivered almonds
¼ cup pecan pieces
¾ cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup honey
2 tbsp water
1-2 tbsp brown sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
½ cup golden raisins
¼ cup dried cherries (optional)

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, break up the matzo into small pieces. Add almonds, pecans and coconut and toss. In small bowl, whisk together the oil, honey and water. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix to coat. Spread mixture onto the cookie sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. When cool, add raisins and dried cherries. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 8 cups.[/recipe]
