Recipe: home-made matzah granola

AKA no-grainola, this crunchy treat is packed with nuts, fruits and warming cinnamon.  Why wait for breakfast — we’ve been eating it all day.


Delicious for breakfast, brunch or as a snack. We love this layered up with Greek yoghurt and chopped berries.

Makes:  approx. 300g


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 60ml maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 60g pecans
  • 3 crushed matzah sheets
  • 25g shredded coconut
  • 50g raisins
  • For 4 granola berry parfaits:
  • 400g Greek yoghurt
  • 300g berries (a mixture of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries)


  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • Mix the oil, syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and nuts in a large bowl.
  • Break the matzah sheets into the bowl and mix well to coat. Transfer to baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, add the coconut, stir well then return to oven for another 10 - 15 minutes until crisp and lightly golden.
  • Remove, cool, stir in the dried fruits and store in an airtight container.
  • For brunch-ready granola parfaits, layer up yoghurt, berries and matzah granola in individual glasses. Top with a layer of granola and serve immediately or it will start to go soggy.
