You didn’t think I would go through Pesach without granola, did you? Not when the only thing to eat for breakfast is yogurt, eggs and scary Passover cereal. Yogurt and eggs are fine, but I like to stay full ’til lunch. Granola-sans-oats isn’t quite up to par with the real thing, but it’s pretty close. I’d even go so far as to say it redeems breakfast on Pesach. Serve it over yogurt or milk and add fresh fruit to the top.
2 cups whole wheat matzah farfel, broken into small pieces
1/2 cup quinoa
1.5 cups raw nuts, coarsely chopped: almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.
1/4 cup flax seeds (no, they’re not kitniot!)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dried fruit combination: raisins, dates and/or apricots
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup oil or melted coconut oil
Combine all the ingredients except the chocolate chips, honey and oil. Add the honey and oil and stir until fully combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread out on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes.
