Get close to holeee with my first version of dead sea granola! Spiced, nutty and full of flavor & healthy goodliness! Other granolas are blah!

Homemade Granola

Oh, yes, you can buy granola. It can be expensive if you check the more healthy brands. But, why not make your own homemade granola!

How did I get the name ‘Dead Sea Granola’. Well, it’s really interesting. I was on a trip to Israel with the Taste of Israel. In 104 Hours I fell in love with Israel!

We visited so many places, ate some of the best food ever, searched the best souks for spices and treasures. And, we spent time in the Judean Desert exploring and seeing so many parts of ancient history like Herod’s Masada (meaning ‘fortress’ in Hebrew) atop an isolated rock plateau in the desert. 

Another milestone of this visit was floating in the Dead Sea. Yes, you really do float. Since it has almost 10 times the saltiness of average seawater, you float! The salinity of the Dead Sea is 33.7%! 

This high salt concentration of the Dead Sea means you have a ntural buyoyancy! And, yes, you just float. 

It was during this time that I was relaxing and just floating in the Dead Sea thinking about this most prolific experience that I conceived the idea for Dead Sea Granola. My granola is full of those aromatic spices that you find as you meander through the souks and it’s salt level is much higher than most granolas. This salt level results in vibrant flavor and unexpected tastes! 

Healthy Granola

Healthy granola starts with healthy ingredients. And, this recipe is full of good things for you. 

You might not realize that we can make French Toast with my Dead Sea Granola! You’ll get more crunchy and warm spicy flavors. Click here! 

And, if you’ve never tried Dead Sea Granola Coffee Cake, well, get ready to sip an extra cup of java! Yes, it’s the best with your first morning’s cup! 

How to Make Granola

It’s simple to make granola. Even my toddler granddaughter has helped me make it. It’s a fun recipe for kids to do and, boy, what a kick they get out of their results. 

The Best Granola Recipe

The best granola recipe starts with the basics. In my mind, yep, it’s the oatmeal. Whole oats. And, next, you have nuts. Nuts are essential to a good granola. And, if you’re like me, you like a nut almost in every bite. 

Easy Granola Recipe

The easiest thing about granola and making it at home is that you control the ingredients. Amounts and types. Sometimes I make an entire big container of whole oats and give away granola to neighbors. Talk about spreading happy!

Crunchy Granola Recipe

There’s a natural crunchy to this recipe. It comes from the combination of ingredients, especially the nuts. Having several different textures really makes granola pop on you palate. 

Ultimate Granola Recipe

And, the ultimate granola recipe has a lot of different flavors too. Especially spice mixtures. I’m working on a commercial Dead Sea Granola brand, so stay tuned for that. 

Granola Recipe

And, like the Coca Cola recipe, I can’t divulge the recipe ingredients and amounts for the gourmet brand that I hope to sell worldwide! Yes, I have big granola ideas and dream! And, it all started about six years ago when I was floating in the Dead Sea while visiting Israel!

Granola Mix for Yogurt

Now this granola mix is great for so many things. Yogurt’s a no brainer. Sprinkle it on for fabulous flavors. But don’t stop there. How about ice cream, using it in cooking and other things that just excite your imagination. You might love these Dead Sea Granola Cookie Mounds too. What a cookie!

Vegan Granola Homemade

With a few adjustments, you can make this granola recipe vegan. Please see the comment in my notes below!

Yield: Makes: About 9-10 cups

Get close to holeee with my first version of dead sea granola! Spiced, nutty and full of flavor & healthy goodliness! Other granolas are blah!


  • Preheat oven to 300
  • 4 cups rolled whole oats, packed
  • 1 cup almonds, whole
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds, can substitute ground flax
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. Chinese 5-Spice, jump up to 2 teaspoons if you want more fragrance and spice!
  • 1 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, can substitute coconut sugar
  • 4 Tbl. butter, melted, vegans can substitute a nondairy butter substitute
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, microwave into liquid if solid
  • 3 Tbl. maple syrup
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup diced dates
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut, can substitute UNsweetened coconut
  • 2 tsp. sea salt flakes


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, salt, spices and brown sugar. Toss well with your hands.

    2. In another small microwavable cup, combine the butter, coconut oil, maple syrup & microwave about 20 seconds or until melted. Pour over the dry mixture and blend well coating everything thoroughly. You're basically 'massaging' the oils into the dry mixture.

    3. Spread on 2 parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake in a preheated 300 oven about 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown.

    4. Remove and put in a bowl. Add the cranberries, and dates. Toss and blend.

    5. Let the mixture cool and add the cacao nibs, coconut and toss. Add the sea salt flakes. Toss and blend.


VEGAN: Plant-based or vegan butter is a nondairy butter substitute. It can be made by combining water with plant-derived oils, like olive, avocado, coconut, palm kernel or combos of oils.

All ovens are different. And, altitude impacts baking and cooking. Your oats should be a golden brown.

Store in large glass airtight containers/jars. Keep in a cool dry place.

Locations with high levels of humidity will affect the freshness.

Good for about 6-8 weeks.

Vacuum sealing will help extend the shelf life of the granola.

Your sharing is GOLDEN! Thank you!

    Hi Ally, I just made the granola and it’s so good. I’m going to make my hubby the toast and
    the coffee cake. I have followed you and Bobby’s family, love when they visit and y’all cook together. Your new home is just beautiful with all the windows ,you can come decorate our house anytime.
    The cutest thing is you and Pop dancing.❤️

    1. Patsy! That DSG is soooooooooo good for many other things besides granola! You’re so very kind and loving. It’s a privilege to have you on my magic carpet. And, yes! You’re gonna see me cooking w/my bonus son, Bobby, and the family real soon! Like in a week or so b/c we’re all heading to CO. Pop and I also will be doing some more dances real soon. Big love to you and your beautiful family. xoxx ally

  2. Love this granola and have made it several times! Do you have any suggestions to make it stick together to make granola bars?

  3. Hi Ally!
    Just made this granola and it’s delicious! Not too sweet. I was watching your video with Bobby from Flavcity and noticed you said you like to put it in the container when it’s still warm—won’t this make the granola susceptible to mold from the steam? Thanks for your help!

    1. Hi, Monika!

      Thank you thank you! Yes, it’s a delicious blend of happy in this recipe! Thanks for making it. No, here in CO where we have very low humidity, I have not problem w/it being slightly warm (not hot). And, we gobble it up pretty quickly, so it’s gone in a flash! Now don’t be a stranger!! xoxx ally

      1. Thanks for the response!

        1. You’re so very welcome, Monida. You’re very important to me! xoxx ally

  4. Hello from the great State of Maine!
    I love your recipes and am wanting to try this Dead Sea Granola. However I have an allergy to Oats 😟 I am curious as to your thoughts on substitutes….possibly Almond flour or ?? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi, Paula! Love your beautiful state of Maine and have spent some times up there in the summers! Exquisite! Alas, this granola must have the oats. The almond flour wouldn’t work. What ‘might’ work, and this is purely experimental is for you to boil some lentils (brown) for about 10 minutes. Drain. Then scatter them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with a little coconut oil/mix up. Then bake them in a preheated 375 oven for about 10-12 minutes. I think you’d have a crunchy texture that would give more of a granola ‘feel’ w/the other ingredients. You could add the almonds and walnuts to them and bake simultaneously. Again, Paula, it’s totally a hair-brained idea! Howwwevvver, not so hair brained that I haven’t tried something similar before. Check out this recipe, luv! xo ally

      1. In my kitchen no idea is hairbrained …..only opportunities for tweaking! Thank You I will continue my quest!! XO

        1. Love that, Paula! We talk the same language!! xo

  5. Cher Bart says:

    Lovely granola! Tastes great. But I wish you would post the nutritional info so I could plan better for macros.

    1. Hi, Cher…thanks so much. I’ll look into that feature! So happy you stopped by! xoxx ~ally

    2. Hi Cheryl,

      Using the exact ingredients; this is what I came up with for the Macros:
      1 cup = 547 cal ; 63.7 Carbohydrates , 30.1 grams of fat, 8.9 grams of protein.

  6. I cannot believe how beautiful this granola is. The flavors are fantastic. I used coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. I’ve already made 3 batches in the last couple of weeks and tweak it every time. This last batch I changed up the dried fruits to cherries, blueberries, along with the dates and added vanilla and cinnamon. This my fave combination so far. Thank you, Ally!

    p.s. I made the healing chicken soup. Oh my gosh! Thank you for that too! The best soup ever!

    1. Mar! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you’ve tweaked to your liking and made such delicious changes to it! That’s the sign of a great home chef, like! Thank you sooooooooooo much, and I love having you here, luv! xoxx ~ally

    3. I love this granola! I’ve made it now a few times. Do you know the nutritional facts?

      1. Hi Eva! Thank you! No, I don’t have the nutritional values for it. You could probably guesstimate given the ingredients! We always have it in our pantry!! xoxx ally

  7. Can I use coconut sugar instead of dark brown sugar?

    1. Absolutely, Deni! In fact, I’ve been using coconut sugar, too! Thank you! xoxx ally

  8. Hands down the best granola I have ever made…and I have made a lot! The flavors are WOW! Thank you so much for sharing this and also for bringing such a radiant joy to my instagram feed.

    1. Kristen! (My DIL is a Kristin, too!) You make me glow w/joy and happiness! Thank you thank you! I’m so glad you’re here. It’s a pleasure and privilege to know you. Now don’t be a stranger!! xoxx ally

  9. What is a substitute for coconut oil? Coconut oil is very high in saturated fats and is not recommended by the American Heart Association. I only use it on the outside of my body—skin, hair

    1. Hi, Barbara…you could use melted butter + avocado oil combo (or maybe olive or almond oil w/the butter). Would that work?

  10. What is Chinese 5 spice ?

    1. Hi, Michelle!

      Chinese 5 spice is a combination of beautiful spices including anise and black pepper! You can check out some of my options at my Amazon Storefront. Just scroll down about midway for several brands. And, you may be able to find it in your local grocery store. Hope you try it! It’s pretty amazing! xoxx ~ally

  11. Evi Kamen says:

    I follow flavcity and when I saw in his story about your dead sea granola, I was curious of how you came up with this name. Then I read your blog about your trip to Israel and it made me miss Israel so much. What an amazing country, unbelievable food. People…so nice that you got to experience it with “taste if Israel”. I will try to make your Granola, and hope I won’t burn it like I usually do (so easy to burn granola) 😜

    1. Evi! You won’t burn it!! It will be deeelish. Yes, I love the people, culture, food and world of Israel. I’m still friends w/those young folks that I met on my trip there. It was one of my life’s many blessings. Sending lots of love and hugs! ~ally xoxx

  12. Delicious! This recipe is a keeper. I substituted chia seeds for the flax, gave it an additional layer of nuttiness. Will definitely be making this again. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes! 🙂

    1. Dear Sue! You’ve made my day. Nothing delights a foodie more than compliments on their recipe. And, substitutions is precisely what makes this recipe your own! Hope to see you very often here in the kitchen! Thanks so very much. I sincerely appreciate your support! xoxx ~ally

            This granola is absolutely delicious. I am a HUGE fan of anything Chinese 5 spice. I have an orange ginger sauce that has the Chinese 5 spice in it that I use on baked salmon. It’s fantastic. So, when I saw this granola recipe called for it, it was a must try. Did NOT disappoint.♥️❤️♥️. I did add a few more ingredients to mine to make it my own…. Dried blueberries, dried cherries, and some chia and pumpkin seeds.
            AMAZING, ITS NOW MY FAVORITE GRANOLA EVER😋 I am having a joyous time looking at all your recipes on your website. Outstanding recipes. Thanks for sharing.

    2. Barbara Coholich Walker says:

      Made the Dead Sea Granola last week. So far, other than eating right out of the jar, I put it on top of banana pancakes Sunday morning and put it on top of a banana bread which I just took out of the oven. Looks so pretty.

    I am a follower of Bobby aka Flavcity. I absolutely love Bobby, Dessi and RoseHoney what an incredible family they are and I love their recipes too;)
    I made a version of this recipe today. I didn’t have the dates or the caoco nibs but I had everything else. I did add some chia seeds and quinoa puffs. Now as it cools down I’m standing here at the stove eating it by the spoonfuls. Lol!!
    Thanks for the recipe Ally…I am enjoying your page as well. Love the recipes and you!!

    1. Tammy! Oh, gosh, I think we all are huge fans of Dessi, Bobby and Rose! And, I also love their recipes. In fact, as I’m sitting here talking to you, Dessi is in my kitchen making three desserts from their latest cookbook. How lucky am I! I’m thrilled that you made the granola! And, your substitutions are perfect! It’s quite addictive. And, we’ve been using it on so so so many things! Thank YOU for sharing w/me, for being kind and supportive and just for loving us from afar!! Hugs and love! xoxx ~ally

  19. Ally, enjoying your videos with Bobby, you have a beautiful home. Is there a substitute for the Chinese 5 spice, & all spice. I live in Vancouver and was wondering if a cinnamon spice would work as well.

    1. Hi, James! I’m so happy you’re here, and thanks for the great question. Chinese 5-Spice has a couple of unusual ingredients (star anise, fennel and black pepper) that add to the flavors. It’s pretty readily available in most grocery stores. IF you can’t find that, then try a pumpkin pie spice mixture w/some additional cinnamon. Or you can pull together your own combo of about 1/2 tsp. each of ground cloves, nutmeg, allspice, 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. Ground star anise if you can source it. Bottom line is that buying the Chinese 5-spice sure makes it easier!! Hope to see much more of you, my new friend!! Smiles!! ~ally

  24. Virginia Gutierrez says:

    Would you happen to know the sodium count with a spefic serving? Ty

    1. Hi, Virginia! So nice to meet you. I’m not sure of the sodium count. Per the recipe you can see that there’s 2.5 teaspooon of salt and the yield is about 8-10 cups of the granola. This is why it’s called ‘Dead Sea’ (salt content) w/the additional salt. You could certainly cut the amount of salt, and it’s still going to be delicious! xxo ~ally

    1. Hi, Debbie! Thanks so very much for coming to visit! Yes, if vacuum sealed. I need to note that I’m talking low humidity areas (like Colorado) is where it lasts longer and better. Vacuum it and you’re golden, Debbie! Don’t be a stranger! xoxo ~ally

    2. Hi Ally!

      Just found you through Flavcity! Your granola looks amazing! Can I substitute anything for the coconut? Some in my home are not big fans of coconut 🙂. BTW your home is gorgeous – so warm and inviting! Thank you!

      1. Totally understand. I’d add some crushed madadamia nuts and more chewy dried fruits. Another idea, Lee, would be to put some coconut in the food processor, really chop/grind into a fine fine mixture. Maybe w/the textural difference, which you’d not even see the coconut shreds, you’d get the flavor w/o the texture. Not sure. Just an idea! Hope to see more of you around here, my friend! xoxx ~ally

      1. Oh my goodness, this is the recipe I have been waiting for. I have some candied orange peel I think will be delicious for this! Question-I don’t have five spice, what spices would you recommend I try to best create that flavor? Thx! I am enjoying your adventures with FlavCity a little south of you in NM💯

        1. I’m sooooooooooo glad you’re here! OK, no problems w/substituting. Do 1/2 tsp. each of ground cloves, allspice, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. That should give you a great warm spice profile! Candied orange peel will be fabulous!! I love the tropical candied fruits like orange and pineapple! Don’t be a stranger! So great to meet you! xoxx ~ally

    Hello Mama Ally…. Good day too you. I am looking forward to making this. It looks so delish. I am hoping to visit Colorado next year. I knew it was a beautiful place and seeing your backyard just proves it & your home is amazing. My husband wants too retire there. We live in a little town called White House, Tennessee. Thank you for the recipe. Do you have a blog or You Tube Channel? Have a FANTABULOUS day😊

    1. Hi, Cheryl! What a lovely comment, and I’m originally from WV, so TN is in our neck of the woods! Thanks for those sweet words on the house and area…Colorado is one beautiful state, and I hope you get to visit. So much to do and see that’s just awe inspiring. God’s great creations. Yes, I have a YT channel and my website is really my blog, so spend some time here, and, hopefully, you dig up some interesting things. Here’s my YT channel. xoxx ~ally

  44. Hi, love your house. Noches wonder Bobby is so excited about it. One thing is to see it on a video and another to have the experience. My question is what are sea salt flakes?

    1. Hi, Anju! I’m so glad you’re here and we’re meeting. Thanks to Bobby! Oh, sea salt flakes are wonderful. Just Google ‘sea salt flakes’ and you’ll find lots of brands. You can probably find at most grocery stores and certainly on Amazon. Hope to see more of you! xoxx ~ally
