Passover Granola

Are you tired of Passover cereal tasting like cardboard? This easy-to-make, kosher-for-Passover granola will have you wishing Passover would last year-round...well maybe not quite that long. Great by itself as a snack, or with milk or yogurt as breakfast, this granola single-handedly gets me through the eight “leaven-less” days.

Enjoy it for the last few days of Passover!

Passover Granola


1 large box of Matzo farfel (regular or whole wheat)
Cinnamon and sugar to taste
½ c. dried apricots or other dried fruit, cut into small pieces
½ c. raisins
½ c. coarsely chopped walnuts or other nuts
½ c. golden raisins
¼ c. (½ stick) butter


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spread the farfel onto a cookie sheet. Melt the butter and mix it with the farfel. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to taste. Toast the farfel in the oven for 10-14 minutes or until golden-brown. Let cool for 10 minutes. Mix with dried fruit. Store in airtight container.

Variation: To make a richer, sweeter version, add two tablespoons of honey to the farfel after toasting it. Then bake for five more minutes, and toss with fruit.
