Passover granola? Yes!

I asked my tweeps for non-seder Passover recipes, and Twitter delivered. Here's Marilyn's Pesach Granola, modified to suit my tastes. It's almost as good as my regular granola!

5 cups matzah farfel
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup honey
2 tbs. water
1-2 tbs brown sugar (or to taste)
1 cup golden raisins

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 300.
Put farfel, nuts, coconut and cinnamon into a large bowl and stir. Blend together the oil, honey and water and pour over the mixture. Stir well, coating the mixture. Sprinkle with sugar.
Spread granola in prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 min or until it seems dry. Remove from oven and break it up to loosen it. When cool, add raisins. Store in plastic bag or container.
Makes about 8 cups.
