Going Totally Nuts! Paleo Passover Granola

Growing up, the hardest part of Passover was giving up my beloved cereal. The Passover versions were never tasty enough, the texture was all wrong, and I wasn’t keen on the cartoons. We took to having matzo brei or matzah meal pancakes for the whole week of Passover.

Now, I want something a little healthier, a little freshier, and something a little more convenient. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Paleo Passover Granola!

This batch will last for the whole week of Passover and more! You could add more spices, or maybe some dried fruits, cocoa nibs, or different nuts, or a couple tablespoons of coconut oil for extra richness. Choose your own adventure!

Going Totally Nuts! Paleo Passover Granola

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pecans pieces or halves
  • 1/2 flax meal
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix everything except egg and honey in a large bowl.
  3. Beat egg and honey together in a small bowl, then pour into nut mixture and mix thoroughly.

  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden and toasty, stirring the mixture after 10 minutes.
