Snack Time - Morah Mindy's Passover Granola
This can be eaten as cereal with milk, as a mix-in with yogurt or as a snack out of the bag.  If someone has nut allergies, omit nuts and increase small dice dried fruit only. (ships well in the mail)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix in large bowl:
3 c. matzah farfel          2/3 c. almonds            1/2 c.  honey
3/4 stick melted butter         1/2 c, coconut      2/3 c pecans
1.5 tsp cinnamon          1/4 tsp nutmeg           1.5 c diced dry fruit

Spread onto flat baking sheet or use lasagne pan for less mess
Bake all but fruit for 15 min. then add fruit.  Cool and bag.  I have mailed this to my college students, newly weds and millenials.
