Pack a lot of heart healthy and fiber rich ingredients into my granola recipe like sunflower seeds, almonds, flax seeds and olive oil.
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line two sheet trays with aluminum foil.
Combine the oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, almonds, flax seeds, brown sugar, vanilla and salt in a medium stainless steel bowl.
Bring the olive oil, maple syrup and cinnamon to boil in a saucepan. Pour the hot liquid over the oat mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until all the oats and nuts are coated.
Divide the granola between the two cookie sheets and spread out evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes. Stir the granola and bake 15 minutes more.
Remove the granola from the oven. Let it cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
