Counting down to Pesach: Matzo Granola and Matzo Pizza

This is an exceptionally delicious granola, and tastes great dry as a snack, or with milk as a breakfast cereal.


  • 4 c. matzo farfel
  • ½ c. nuts
  • ¾ c. shredded coconut
  • ½ c. honey
  • ½ c. oil
  • ½ c. raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries, or a combination


  1. Mix together the matzo farfel, nuts and coconut.
  2. Mix together the honey and oil.
  3. Mix together the two mixtures.
  4. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet, bake at 350° for 15–20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. When cool add raisins or other dried fruit. Seal in airtight container.

Rae and I were at it again at temple this morning, showing the high-schoolers some Passover recipes. First we stirred up a batch of granola, and then, while the granola was in the oven, we made some matzo pizzas.

Matzo makes a pretty terrific pizza crust!

Its easy to customize these single-serving pizzas.

  1. I’m so glad you posted these! I got to sample both at temple today, and was particularly blown away by the granola. I had been wondering how I might get the recipe!

  2. Where do you find Matzoh farfel in this benighted town? Or can you just put regular Matzoh in a plastic bag and hit it with a brick?
