Passover Granola

I haven’t met a Passover cereal that I liked so I decided to create o­ne. This Granola is too good! I eat it for breakfast, munch o­n it for a snack, and when I am particularly bad, I stir it into melted chocolate and make a candy that is addictive! This makes about a quart, but plan o­n making more than o­ne batch before Passover is over.


  • 3 cups matzo farfel
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds
  • ½ cup sweetened or unsweetened coconut
  • 2/3-cup pecans broken into large pieces
  • 1/4-teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4-teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3-cup wildflower or clover honey
  • 1 ½ cups chopped dried mixed fruit of your choice including raisins, or 7 oz. bag of dried fruits

Preparation Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Combine the farfel, almonds, coconut, pecans, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a 2 quart mixing bowl.
  3. Melt the butter and honey in a small glass bowl in a microwave for 1 minutes until butter is melted and honey is more fluid.
  4. Stir the butter mixture into the farfel mixture until all farfel is lightly coated with the butter.
  5. Spread mixture over a large pan with 1 inch sides and bake for 15 minutes. Half way through baking stir to brown evenly.
  6. Remove from oven. Cool slightly and then toss with the dried fruit.
  7. When totally cooled, store in a zip lock bag or air tight storage container for all eight days of Passover!
