Next time I might use other seeds and nuts in place of the sunflower seeds, add some coconut flakes, shake in some sesame seeds, and possibly add orange or lemon zest. Granola is extremely versatile--take advantage of this versatility, and get creative in the kitchen!
-2 1/2 cups rolled oats
-1/3 cup ground flax
-1/3 cup wheat germ
-1/3 cup sunflower seeds
-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
-1/2 cup agave nectar OR pure maple syrup OR honey
Preheat oven to 300F or preheat broiler to low.
Mix oats, flax, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, and cinnamon together on a large metal baking sheet. Drizzle agave nectar over granola, and mix well to coat. Place granola in preheated oven and bake. Be sure to stir the granola every five minutes or so to prevent burning. Your granola is ready when it is lightly browned and crispy. Remove from oven, and cool to room temperature.
Store in a Ziploc bag or an airtight container.
