Crumbled sheets of matzo replace standard oats in this Passover-friendly version of granola. To make it, toss matzo pieces in a buttery maple syrup glaze spiced with cinnamon and ginger, and then bake with pistachios until crisp. Chewy dried apricots and golden raisins are mixed in at the end for texture and sweetness. Serve this unexpected take on granola with yogurt or milk, or snack on it straight from the container. With its satisfying crunch and sweet flavor, it may become your go-to granola year round.
What to buy: Matzo farfel is matzo that’s been pre-crumbled. On Passover it’s used as a starchy base in dishes like stuffing, kugel, and granola. You can find it in Jewish specialty stores, the kosher section of many grocery stores, or online.
