Chocolate Coconut Matzah Granola is so good you’ll want to eat it long after Passover!
Every Passover, my mom would make matzo substitutes of typical chametz foods to eat during the eight-day festival.
Matzo lasagna, matzo rolls, matzo casseroles, you get the idea.
I would always joke at the irony that we normally had noodle lasagna once per year, so it always struck me as funny that suddenly we couldn’t go a week without the Passover variety.
Yet I found myself craving it every year.
And while the rolls were nowhere near the taste of our standard kaiser or egg rolls for deli sandwiches, I loved the familiar taste too. We only ate these foods once per year, but it just wasn’t Passover without them.
There are many matzo haters out there, but I look forward to matzo pizza, matzo brei, even a simple matzo schmeared with salted butter. What some say is reminiscent of cardboard I say is a vessel for deliciousness. Bring on the matzo!
Granola is another food that seems like we could go a week without. Yet when chocolate coconut matzo granola tastes this good, why not indulge? The matzo is extra crispy, thanks to a pre-toast. Then it’s covered in chocolate, coconut and almonds for a sweet snack or breakfast over yogurt.
