Gluten Free Passover Recipes Part 1: Cinnamon Raisin Quinoa Granola

Yes, we’re talking Passover already. Of course it doesn’t feel like it’s coming, since we just got hit yet again with another snow storm. But whether spring decides to put its foot down and push winter out of the way or not, Passover is rapidly approaching.

So we’re starting to plan already. And this year, we wanted to create gluten free passover recipes, just to switch it up a little. And even though eating gluten free during passover isn’t the most difficult thing to do, it can get challenging, since a lot of products and recipes call for matzah, matzah meal and other gluten containing ingredients.

Personally, we find breakfast to be one of the most challenging meals during passover. Especially trying to make it somewhat nutritious!

Well, once again, quinoa to the rescue. This tiny little power house is actually considered a seed and is also kosher for Passover. Great alternative to people who don’t eat rice during the holiday. And so versatile, that can even be made into granola. As we did in this recipe.

Enjoy it with milk, almond milk or yogurt as part of your breakfast, or just by itself as a healthy snack.

Definitely healthier than all that other sugary stuff 😉

    Wow – this looks great, what delicious brekkie 🙂 This will definitely be on my Pesach breakfast list 🙂

    Can I ask – can you use regular milk in this recipe?

    Cheers, Joanne

      Thank you so much! Yes you can use regular milk as well.

    I am going to try to go gluten free this Pesach with the exception of matzo at the sederim. I am SO excited about this recipe. I went on the OU Kosher for Passover list to see which almond milks are kosher for Passover…a good amount of them are! Looking forward to more gluten free recipes from you guys…Also, the quinoa has to have a Kosher for Passover certification- the StarK has one.

      This year, our Passover Recipes, are going to be perfect for you!

      Yeah, it is great, the quinoa is really crunchy and makes a great addition to yogurt or cottage cheese. This year they are selling special batches of quinoa, that are certified chametz free.

    We eats lots of quinoa on Passover and at other times. Never made it into granola. Who knew!! Well, I guess you did. Looks wonderful and makes a great addition to breakfast or on top of baked apples and so on and so on. Thanks for the inspiration.

      Love the idea of adding quinoa granola to baked apples. I will have to try it!

    How Interesting. I may have to make this just to see how the texture of the quinoa feels. I am having trouble imagining it.
