Mom's Homemade Granola

This is really good on yogurt, and would probably be excellent with milk (Kelli).  It's considered healthy, so it's not very sweet, but you can definitely add more sweet if you prefer it that way.  I like to add a little vanilla too.

4 1/2 c old fashioned oatmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c maple syrup
1/4 c brown sugar
2 TBS flaxseed meal
as much as you want of the following
sunflower seeds
sliced almonds
Mix everything together and spread out on a foil covered cookie sheet. Bake 25-35 minutes at 350, stirring 3 times.  You can add more or less brown sugar, however you like it.
