In medium bowl, combine both flours, oats, sunflower seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. In separate bowl, combine milk, egg and butter. Place dry and liquid ingredients in bread machine according to manual. Use machine’s dough setting to mix and knead. (Bread will not bake in machine.) Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
