For Passover 2016 I used my homemade Passover granola recipe to make these Passover granola treats, the Passover version of Rice Krispie treats. These tasty treats were a huge hit and I’ve been making them for Passover ever since. I’ve provided a recipe for my homemade Passover granola, but you can use store bought Passover granola to save some time. For a Sweet Passover make sure to have a batch of these on hand.
Spray a 9” x 9” or a 9” x 13” pan (depending on how thick you want the treats to be) with kosher for Passover vegetable spray. If you can’t find tasteless oil, use butter or margarine to grease the pans.
Melt the butter or margarine over low heat in a large saucepan. Add the marshmallows to the melted butter and stir until completely melted and combined. Remove from the heat and add the 6 cups of granola to the sauce pan. Fold in the extra miniature marshmallows, if desired.
Stir all ingredients together until well combined.
The mixture will be sticky, so use a spatula (sprayed with Passover vegetable oil) or use some buttered wax paper or aluminum foil to press the mixture into the prepared pan. (If desired, top with sprinkles).
Allow the granola treats to cool. Then cut into desired servings.
Makes 12 to 16 servings
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a bowl, then place on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Toss mixture every few minutes, and check to make sure sides are not burning.
Remove when lightly toasted. Increase oven to 350 degrees.
While first 3 ingredients are in oven, combine butter or margarine, brown sugar, honey, and salt in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat.
Place toasted farfel, coconut, and nuts in a large mixing bowl. Pour on syrup mixture, and mix well all ingredients. Make sure everything is evenly coated.
Place granola on cookie sheet and toast for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.
Check frequently and toss to prevent sticking and burning.
Notes: Delicious, addictive! Can add some spices like cinnamon, and some flavoring like vanilla. Can also use different nuts and some dried fruits.
