Great Granola Winter Snack

1 Comment 06 November 2011

There is no better feeling for a Jewish mom than clearing out those half filled bags and containers of oatmeal,assorted nuts, sesame seeds, apricots and  dried cranberries that lay around our freezers and pantries from month to month. Inspired by Susie Fishbein’s Kids in the Kitchen, I whipped up an easy batch of yummy granola in about 7 minutes. (not including baking time). I really like this recipe because there is very little oil, which is not common for most granola recipes.

This is Susie Fishbeins recipe- but to be honest, since I never folow directions, I added sesame seeds, dried apricots, and any nut that I wanted to get rid of.

That kind of made it look a dot dry ,so I poured in a drop of extra maple syrup and maybe another drop of safflower oil.

Dont worry- it came out great!

Relax, You dont always have to follow the rules!!!


  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cups raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup craisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup any nut
  • 1/4 cup chopped any other nut
  • 1/4 chopped any other nut
  • 4 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Combine dry
  • Whisk wet
  • Pour mixture onto parchment  paper sprayed with Pam (onto a pan of course)
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees stirring once midway
  • Wait for it to cool to break into pieces

If you know that your family will love it then double the recipe!

Whole Wheat Apple or Peach Crisp with Granola Crunch Topping

1 Comment 05 August 2011

This recipe is adapted from Bitayavon- the fabulous new kosher recipe and food magazine . Check it out!!!

The original recipe called for apples but I had tons of ripe peaches that I needed to use up….

I also doubled the Bitayavon recipe for a large Shabbat crowd.

  • 10 ripe peaches, you can add 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  1. Mix the above ingredients with cubed peaches in a bowl.
  2. Bake in a baking dish till soft and bubbly.

Granola Topping:

  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 6 tbspoons of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of safflower oil
  • 6 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup or more to taste.
  1. Mix above ingredients except for honey or maple syrup  and press into a baking dish.
  2. Bake 15-20 minutes till firm.
  3. Drizzle honey or maple syrup over hot granola crunch.
  4. Serve peaches in individual pretty bowls with granola sprinkled on top.

This is an easy and very healthy, gourmet looking dessert. Try it and let me know if your family liked it as much as mine did!!!

Thank you  Bitayavon for the great recipes!!!!

Keep them coming!!!

Shabbat Shalom!
