Brown Sugar Granola

Sometimes I start craving granola. Especially on cold windy mornings when things are a little rushed. I've tried loads and loads of granola recipes looking for that special one. I have learned that I like my granola on the decadent side and to me, that means butter and brown sugar.
6 cups Rolled Oats
1/3 cups toasted flax seed
1 cup raw sunflower seeds - you can add other seeds/nuts but this is how my kids like to eat it
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 t. vanilla
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the oats, seeds/nuts, and salt. Melt the butter over the stove and add the honey and brown sugar.
Add the buttery sugary goodness to the oat and mix well.
Line a cookie sheet (the ones with sides) with foil and pour the granola mixture on it. Bake for 30 minutes, stir, and bake for another 30 minutes...by now the house should start smelling really good.
Let the granola cool and then break up into smaller clumps. Who wants a granola-yogurt parfait?
