Granola Parfait with Fruit and Yogurt

5 cups rolled oats
2 1/2 cups nuts (I used chopped pecans and walnuts)
1 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup sesame seeds
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Vanilla yogurt
Fresh fruit (I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and pineapple)

For the granola, preheat oven to 300.  In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, combine the applesauce, honey, maple syrup, and oil.  Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.  Spread evenly onto rimmed baking sheets in a single layer.  Bake for 35-45 minutes, stirring and rotating the pans every 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven, stir to mix well.  It will crisp as it cools.  Store in an airtight container.
For the parfait: 
Place a bit of the granola in the bottom of a dish.  Top with a generous amount of yogurt.  Top with fresh fruit.  Sprinkle a little more granola on the very top.  Enjoy!

This recipe can also be made to freeze.  Follow this Link for further instructions.
