April is finally here and Passover is next week! With everything going on right now and the lockdown, you can easily lose track and forget which day is it today. This year many will be celebrating Pesach differently - some without the whole family and some might be completely alone. The situation definitely makes us stop and prioritize things. Staying home and being safe and healthy is the most important thing right now!
Passover symbolizes the start of spring and leaving Egypt to the path of freedom, let's hope and pray that after this Passover we will be able to go outside and return to our regular lives.
For this Passover celebration, I bring you an easy recipe that will be a great option for a Passover breakfast or afternoon snack. Usually, during Passover, breakfast can be challenging and with all the stress lately, I have a simple recipe that won't require much time and effort.
This easy granola recipe is based on the homemade granola recipe I have on my blog. To replace the oatmeal that we don’t consume during Passover, I used matzos. You simply break the matzos to small pieces and you get the perfect texture. My husband said this dish reminds him more of breakfast cereals than granola, so you can call it whatever you want - it's just tasty!
To the matzos, I added different nuts, cinnamon, olive oil, and maple syrup. You can use another kind of vegetable oil and replace the maple syrup to honey or Silan (date syrup).
I only used 4 tablespoons of maple syrup. If you want the granola to be very sweet then just add more. The cinnamon adds a bit of sweetness too.
I like to have this delicious granola on top of yogurt with some fresh fruits like an apple or a pear. You can also have it with milk or just as it is, it's very hard to stop munching either way!
This Passover granola can be considered a healthy breakfast too, besides the matzos, all the ingredients are nourishing and with added fresh fruits, this meal is very satisfying.
Last year, I shared Passover pancakes recipe and two years ago, I shared Passover rolls recipe, both can be perfect breakfasts too.
