Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 cups crumbled whole wheat matzo or matzo farfel
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped pecans
  • 6 tablespoons margarine
  • 1/2 cup dark-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix together matzo, almonds, and pecans. Spread matzo mixture in an even layer on prepared baking sheet. Transfer to oven and bake until toasted, about 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, place margarine, sugar, honey, salt, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and cook until margarine is melted and mixture is well combined.

  4. Step 4

    Transfer toasted matzo mixture to a large bowl and add margarine mixture; toss to coat. Return mixture to rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake, stirring frequently, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

  5. Step 5

    Stir cooled granola on baking sheet and transfer to an airtight container, breaking up larger pieces. Add raisins, cover container, and shake to combine. Granola may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks.

    This is the best Granola I have ever tasted. It's very easy to make and I don't think I will ever buy Granola again....This not only smells delicious, It is delicious.

    Oh man, this is great stuff! I usually dread passover desserts because so many of them are bland and tasteless. But I made some of this granola and couldn't stop eating it! Thanks for renewing my faith in parve desserts! Come next year, I'll be on the hunt for a new hamentaschen recipe for Purim. I wonder if Erica has one she could share with us then.

    Great - thank you Martha folks. I'm not Jewish but my husband is, and I love the Passover holiday and appreciate learning new recipes. Ericas granola looks easy, and giftable.
    Is she a regular? I'd love to know what to do for Purim, Chanukah, etc. etc. Or how to make motzo balls not out of a box!!! Thanks!

    This recipe received my mother's "seal of approval" at the second seder last night. We're always looking for fun new recipes for Jewish holidays. Thanks again for this one. Everyone loved it and they gobbled it up at lightening speed! Please consider having Erica back to share recipes and ideas for other holidays too.

    I love this recipe and I loved watching Erica talk about Passover food and her family's holiday traditions. It would be great to have her on again to discuss other Jewish holidays.

    I made this recipe and it was delicious. Instead of three cups of nuts, I used two and added three extra sheets of matzoh. We are not huge raisin fans so I did not add those. This tasted just like the top of a cinnabon. I would recommend the granola as a dessert rather than a cereal since it is very sweet. I will now be adding this to my recipes for Passover or anytime.

    I can't wait to try this and share it with my family. I grew up at a time when we were overdosed and overwhelmed by a multitude of macaroons during Passover. They were the common" Passover dessert, and I learned to loathe them. Even the word is "yucky" to me. I welcome a new Passover treat. This granola looks delicious!
