  1. Combine oats, nuts, wheat germ, salt and flax seeds in large mixing bowl; mix well and set aside.
  2. Combine agave, butter, cinnamon, vanilla, syrup and salt in saucepan; bring to boil and cook one minute.
  3. Pour agave mixture over oat mixture and toss until well blended.
  4. Sprinkle brown sugar over the mixture and blend.
