Passover Recipes in a Pinch!

I am  always searching for Passover recipes. I prefer the ones that I am not slaving in the kitchen  for hours but everybody thinks I did!

Here are a few of my fave:

First one is the 4 ingredient Miracle Bar I posted on Facebook:



  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375; Grease a 9×13 pan. Mix ingredients together and spread in pan with spatula. Batter will be thick but do not add water. Just mix it well. Bake for 23 minutes. — OR — Shape into cookies and bake 12–15 minutes. Do not undercook

Easy Peasy and yummy!


This recipe was given to me by my friend Jen several years ago. It is such a hit, I make it EVERY YEAR!!!




  • 2 packages of semi sweet chocolate chips – 12 oz
  • 1/2 box of matzah farfalle
  • 1 cup walnuts (skip the nuts for nut free version!)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil


Carefully microwave chocolate and oil in 1 minute intervals. Stir until almost melted. Then dump all additional  ingredients into chocolate bowl and mix all together. On 2 throw away sheets spread mix onto each sheet. Freeze overnight and over with aluminum foil. Then the next day break the candy apart and put into baggies, store and Freeze.

Last one that is also a crowd pleaser!!!

Flourless Chocolate, Almond and Coconut Cookies



  • 1 cup Unsalted Slivered Or Sliced Almonds
  • 1 cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut
  • ½ cups Plus 3 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 4 whole Egg Whites, At Room Temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ cups Mini Chocolate Chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spread almond slivers and shredded coconut evenly on a large rimmed baking pan. Place in the oven and toast for about 7-8 minutes, turning/tossing once halfway through, until golden brown and fragrant. Reduce heat to 325ºF.

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together cocoa (1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons total), powdered sugar, and salt. Continue whisking while adding egg whites and vanilla extract, mixing until just moistened. Don’t overwhisk or the eggs will stiffen. Stir in almonds, coconut, and chocolate chips.

3. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. (I highly suggest using parchment paper).  Spoon batter by the tablespoon onto the baking sheet (this makes 24) or by heaping tablespoons (this makes 18 large cookies).

4. Bake for 14-16 minutes, turning pans and shifting the top to bottom rack halfway through. Cookies are finished when tops are shiny and cracked. Slide the cookies off the pans and allow to cool completely before serving.

Enjoy! Happy Passover!

    All your recipe have nuts with this allergic reaction don’t work in my household and in many more. You should really provide a substitute

    what is “powdered ” sugar?

    These recipes look amazing. Thank you for sharing. It is rather shocking that people are criticizing your use of nuts and not providing an alternative. I have allergies and I don’t expect every single recipe ever shared to offer numerous variations, substitutions, omissions, etc. Find a different recipe… there are thousands out there. OR, perhaps, adjust it yourself! Really people, this wasn’t a personal attack.

  8. Thank you for sharing your recipes. The chocolate matzah looks awesome, but what is matzah farfalle?

    To anonymous: Powdered sugar is also known as confectioners sugar.

    To anonymous per nuts; I’m quite sure you know how to be creative if you cannot tolerate nuts.
    Many recipes can be adjusted to your own preference. If you do not want any other alternatives, then simply make it without the addition of nuts. 
    Cooking and baking is all about being creative and having fun! You’ll never know of variations unless you try it out! Some you’ll want to throw out and some you’ll know you just might have something! Just have fun in the kitchen!

    ToastIng the matzah farfel and the nuts will enhance the flavor and the texture of the Chocolate Matzah.

    Thanks so much, these all look great.  I have a question:

    Can’t wait to try!

    Hi there- I just made the 4 ingredient miracle bar- LOVE IT!!!!! I am not cook or a baker and need precise directions- I was wondering if there was any way to cut down on the sugar- being GF and dairy free- I can see myself eating them all of the time and a cup of sugar and a cup of chocolate chips regularly will not be a very good thing-

    Thank you so much!

    I am a nut allergic and will omit all nut products. These look easy with no matzoh product to up set the stomach anymore. 

    March 28, 2015 • 11:27 am •
  23. I am also wondering for the chocolate matzoh is it 2 bags 12 ounces each of chocolate chips or 12 ounces in total?
    Please let me know asap. Want to make these tonight.  Sounds yummy!!
    All 3 recipes do.  Will make all for my seder

    Lovely post! I am going to make the 4-ingredient Miracle Bar for our Seder.  Looks scrumptious; thank you so much.

    Thank you so much!!! For those not ok with peanuts, omit them. My son has a severe peanut allergy…omitting nuts is a no brainier! Come up with your own substitution…I’m sure you have before??

    Thankyou! Just made the choc almond and coconut cookies – they are delicious and so easy to make. I used castor sugar because we don’t have KLP powdered sugar here and I put 2 cups instead of 3. I think next time I’d even reduce it further to 1 1/2 cups of sugar.

    The article is not called  “Nut Free Passover”. There are plenty of recipes online that are nut free. This is just Passover Recipes in a pinch. If you are not pleased, please search for others. Thank you for stopping by.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful miracle bar recipe—FYI, I doubled the recipe and the bars came out much thicker—crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I will definitely be adding this to my Passover menu every year!
