Granola Parfaits

I was extremely excited to make these delicious parfaits.  I was truly amazed at how delectable they are.  You can change up the dried fruits or nuts and make it your own.  This parfait is to-die-for, melt in your mouth goodness!  

Items needed:

2 ½ cups Old Fashioned Oats
2/3 cup dried Apricots (diced)
1/2 cup Blueberry Craisins
1/2 cup Sliced Almonds
2 Tablespoons Wheat Germ
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2/3 cup Agave Nectar
1/3 cup Canola Oil
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
Wax Paper
Vanilla Yogurt
Parfait Glasses

Grease and line 3 (11x17) inch pans with wax paper, set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine, oats, apricots, craisins, almonds, wheat germ and cinnamon. Blend together with hands. In a 1 quart pot combine, agave nectar, canola oil and coconut oil. Turn burner to low heat and once it is hot, add pot and cook while stirring for 4 minutes until coconut oil has melted. Remove pot from burner and pour over dry mixture. Stir together until completely incorporated. Pour mixture onto 1 of the pans. Bake at 325 degrees on the 3rd rack for 22 minutes, tossing mixture with a spatula every 4 minutes. Remove from oven and toss mixture onto the other 2 pans to dry out. Layer yogurt in the bottom of parfait glasses and then add a layer of granola. Repeat until glasses are filled.
