Recipe: Passover Granola

I know that Passover is half over but I wanted to share an awesome recipe that Mom made. Quality snack are difficult to find during Passover, crackers, pretzels, and peanut butter are all chametz and not kosher for Passover. There are potato chips and cracker-esque things for Passover but they are not that good. My mom made Passover Granola and we can't stop eating it. I am sure many of you have made your own granola but this is an awesome healthy snack that we are enjoying during Passover.

Passover Granola (courtesy of Bergen County Jewish Standard)
3 cups matza farfel (kind of like matza croutons)
1 cup pecans, chooped (mom used walnuts)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup raisins
1/2 chopped apricots
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325. Place all ingredients in a large bowl, stir with a spoon until mixed. Grease a cookie sheet with sides and spread mixture evenly on it. Bake for 75 minutes or until mixture browns. Watch this carefully after 50 minutes to make sure it doesn't burn. Stir it occasionally. Can be made up to a week or two in advance, Store in an airtight container. Makes 5 or 6 cups.
