Preheat the oven to 300° F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium or large bowl, toss together the almond slivers, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, and pecans.
In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
Stir in the liquid by pouring it over the bowl of nuts and mixing thoroughly.
Press the mixture into the pan. It will resemble a large granola bar.
Bake until just lightly golden brown on top, about 35-40 minutes.
Allow the granola to cool. Once cooled, break it into pieces and store in an air-tight container.
