ALERT!  This is NOT a paleo or SCD recipe.  It is a staple in my husbands family so I felt that it would be good to include it.  It is crunchy and sweet and hard to stop eating.  It is great on its own or my favorite was with milk as a cereal.  Last year I made a gluten-free version for my Dad who has celiac.  I used gluten-free matzah and then kept the recipe the same… he LOVED it!

Nana’s Matzah Granola


  • 3 c matzah farfel (use gluten-free matzah and break into little pieces for gluten-free version)
  • ¾ c sliced almonds
  • 4 T oil
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 T honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Option: raisins, cranberries, dates, coconut
  • NOTE: I usually double recipe


  1. Toss together farfel, almonds, oil, cinnamon, honey and vanilla (use hands to help mix). DO NOT ADD RAISINS HERE! (I have made this mistake many times and the raisins or other optional add-ins will burn.)
  2. Spread onto greased aluminum foil on cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 min until golden brown (stir after 10 min).
  4. Cool
  5. Then add optional ingredients
  6. Enjoy plain, on top of yogurt or even with milk as a cereal.
