PointsPlus Matzoh Brei with Bananas and Yogurt Recipe


Looking for a great way to celebrate Passover? Try this Kosher dish that's similar to a blintz. Feel free to mix it up by using  fresh sliced strawberries, chopped apples, or juicy pear slices. 


  • 3 boards matzoh, broken into 1-1 ½-inch pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar, in the raw or regular sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 1 large banana, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries


Place the matzoh in a colander in the sink and hold under cold running water for 30 seconds to dampen. Drain well and set aside. 

In a large bowl, beat together the egg, egg whites, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. Add the matzoh, stirring gently to coat. 

In a 9-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Pour matzoh mixture into a skillet in an even layer and cook until bottom is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Flip over with spatula (matzoh brei may break into pieces, which is fine). Cooking until eggs are set and second side is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Serve topped with yogurt, banana slices, and blueberries.
