Matzo-Granola – Healthy AND Kosher for Pesach

Posted on

Ok guys, I promised you that I’ve been working on some ultra sexy, healthy matzo ideas… so here you go!

Matzo granola 

If you’ll remember from this post about unhealthy assassins, granola is one of those foods which is dressed up as a healthy temptress but will then proceed to screw you over by being full of fat and sugar. Have no fear, Big Jew is here. I’ve formulated this much healthier version of granola below. It’s 100% Passover friendly too 🙂


Yield: 4 servings (or 1 hungry Jewish boy)


4 matzo
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
A splash of oil (any non-flavour type)
As many nuts as you want. Go nuts. (I love pecans, macadamia or walnuts in this)

Method to the madness: 

1. Break up the matzo into fine(ish) pieces
2. Chop the nuts
3. Throw together in a baking dish with brown sugar, honey, oil, salt, cinnamon
4. Bake on 160 degrees C for about 20 mins till brown and toasty 


I serve mine with yogurt and fruit. Enjoy

    Awesome! This Jew thought Passover starts tomorrow. Luckily I have some delish and easy WW Passover recipes. I might have to make this one too!
