Matzo granola with walnuts and coconut

Be careful! It's addictive!

Serves 6
1/4 (60 ml) cup vegetable oil
1/3 (115 gr) cup honey
3 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 sheets matzo, crumbled into small pieces
1 cup (115 gr) walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup (45 gr) shredded unsweetened coconut
2/3 cup (105 gr) black raisins

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C) and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together the vegetable oil. honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add the matzo and stir to completely coat.

Spread the granola on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Add the walnuts and coconut and stir to combine. Bake, stirring once, until the matzo browns and walnuts and coconut are toasted, 10 to 12 minutes more. (The mixture will look wet, don't worry, it will crisp up as it cools.)

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately transfer the granola to a large heat-safe bowl. Stir in the raisins. let cool completely, stirring occasionally to break up any large clumps. Store in an airtight container for up 1 week.
