On Passover there are at leat 13 ways of looking at matzah; Matzah Pizza, matzah lasagne (meat and dairy version), matzah farfel stuffing, matzah brittle, brussell sprouts with garlic matzah crumbs, matzah layer cake, chocolate covered matzah, matzah ball soup, matzah meal chicken nuggets, matzah brei, matzah rolls….. And now, maple pecan matzah “granola”. This one is for my kids- who are already tiring of cream cheese and jam on matzah for breakfast, and vowed to never take a simple bowl of sweet crunchy morning cereal for granted.

Maple Pecan Matzah Granola

1/4 c. butter

1/2 c. maple syrup

6 c. matzah farfel

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 c. chopped pecans

1/2 c dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper- set aside. In a saucepan over med. heat melt butter and then mix in maple syrup. In large bowl combine matzah farfel, cinnamon, and pecans. Pour in butter-syrup mixture and mix well, until all farfel is coated with syrup. Spread “granola” on baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring every 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven when golden and crunchy, toss dried cranberries into the mix- allow to cool. Enjoy with milk, on top of yogurt or cottage cheese.

  • If you like your granola sweet, feel free to increase the amount of maple syrup.
