Yid.Dish: Maple Pecan Matzah “Granola”

P4010011

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.

    Hi! Just wanted to say how excited I am that I stumbled across this blog! Very cool to see I’m not the only meshuggener Jew who’s involved in the sustainable food movement!

    I tried the granola recipe last night–this was the best breakfast I’ve had all week! I doubled the syrup (I like my granola rather sweet), used walnuts instead of pecans and golden raisins instead of cranberries. Also, I used whole wheat mazto farfel to get some protein in (I’m vegetarian, btw). O.K., so I pretty much changed the whole recipe, but it was because I didn’t have time to go to the store and I had all of these ingredients lying around needing to be used. (Especially the matzo farfel. What am I going to do with that after Passover?) Thanks so much for posting this recipe. What a great idea!! =D
