Matzo Granola Supreme
Love Passover and it is probably my favorite holiday though out the year. We all have our different preferences but this is mine.
I look forward to making something that I have not had before. Like a “old” recipe or a new one. I enjoy having something that is a new venture in flavor and meaning. Going for a Farfel Roasted Vegetable Artichoke Casserole for my taking Seder dish and maybe a fresh Haricort Vert dish. There is nothing worse than a dried out Kugel, the last Kugel I made was not good and I vowed to not make one again til I tweak the recipe.
Don’t skimp on this recipe, meaning use good quality butter and brand name sugar, even organic. The taste is always better and do not use old nuts, they are horrible and will ruin this and the cinnamon will bring out the best in all the other good ingredients.
If you are a granola fan or just need a cereal during Passover, try this!
I can’t even begin to tell you how good and yummy this is. I am really not that BIG a fan of granola, but I do like the better brands. This is somewhat different in texture and tastes but I think surpasses the regular type. In fact I think someone needs to start making this and selling it, maybe me!
I have some gorgeous strawberries that I am going to slice up with some good quality Greek Yogurt and I will be set. I think it is the nuts and butter along with honey and the Saigon Cinnamon.
