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.

For our crew, let’s go easy on the shredded coconut, OK?
Thanks so much for this recipe. I had this idea also and bought matzo farfel and dried cranberries for Pesach. I was going to just try to convert a year round recipe but now I can use yours. PS where did you get the carrots with the tops n them? I check whole food all of the time and they never seem ro have them. Thank you for being committed to healthy kosher eating!!
Hi Faith! Glad to help. For the carrots, I actually buy them at any produce store. I prefer organic carrots, but for this recipe, I buy regular ones. You could use organic ones w/o tops, and it would still taste the same. just not as pretty! Let me know how the granola turns out, and have a great Chag.
Sounds great Wendy. Thanks.
Sounds wonderful. But don’t the chocolate chips melt? Chag Sameach.
