Matzo Granola

This matzo granola is so good and is a great way to use those matzo leftovers. The crumbled matzo replaces the typical rolled oats and becomes toasty and crunchy in the oven. Serve this matzo granola with your favorite yogurt, milk, fresh fruits, or straight out of the jar.

It is so easy to make and tailor to your tastes. You could take this recipe and add flavors like cinnamon, dried fruits, and nuts. 

It makes a great Passover food gift that your friends and family will enjoy as a snack or over yogurt for breakfast. Handmade gifts are always special! Package it in a cute little jar, add a gift tag (I like to write down the recipe), and you’re all set.

Ingredients Overview

Matzo: An unleavened cracker-like bread that is traditionally eaten on Passover. 

Coconut oil: Oil helps make this granola crisp, and the coconut adds an irresistible flavor. If your coconut oil isn’t in liquid form, you’ll want to melt it in the microwave.

Date syrup or honey: For sweetness. You can substitute it with maple syrup or brown sugar. 

Nuts: Use whichever nuts you have on hand or like best.
