Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a half-sheet pan with parchment or silpat.
In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds, quinoa, teff, and chia. Stir well and set aside.
Spread evenly onto the lined sheet pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes (removing to stir 1-2 times throughout the cooking time), or until the granola is golden brown. Stir in the dried fruit and allow to cool 10-15 minutes before laying into the parfait.
