Because it is approximately 2.5 hours away from Shabbos & Yom Tov, I’ll skip the ramble and get straight to the point.

Quick & Healthy Kosher for Passover Granola
Adapted from Couldn’t Be Parave
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat matzah farfel
- 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup unsweetened ground or shredded coconut
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- pinch coarse salt
- 3 heaping tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons oil (coconut oil, any light tasting oil)
- 1/2 cup dried fruit or chocolate chips (optional..add in at end)
Preheat the oven to 325.
Combine the matzah farfel, nuts, coconut, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Stir until well mixed. Combine the honey and brown sugar in a small and microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved. If using a soild oil (like coconut oil, heat that with the honey and sugar). If using a liquid oil, now whisk it in. Microwave for another 30 seconds and whisk once more. Pour the honey mixture over the farfel mixture and stir until well combined.
Pour the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, stirring frequently to keep it from burning. It will be slightly golden when it is done but not yet crispy. (It crisps as it cools) Remove from the oven and let it cool. If you would like, add in dried fruits, chocolate, or whatever mix-ins you desire once cooled. Keep in an air-tight container (if it makes it into a container…)
