Quinoa,flax seed and chia seed granola

I make this granola once a week and store in the fridge for my breakfasts. I use it to make a yogurt parfait consisting of greek yogurt, fruit (berries, bananas, apples, etc.) and the granola. 

This is the Jillian Michaels' Quinoa Granola recipe but I have added chia seeds, craisins and sliced almonds.
Makes approx. 10-2 tbsp servings 

1 cup quinoa (uncooked, rinsed and drained) 
1/4 cup whole flaxseed 
1 tbs honey 
1 tbs olive oil 
Parchment paper 

Preheat the oven to 375° and spread parchment paper over a cookie sheet. Combine the first four ingredients in a bowl. Spread the mixture over the parchment paper. Bake it in the oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Once it's completely cool, crumble the mixture. Combine 1/3 cup of the granola with nonfat plain Greek yogurt and fruit. Recipe makes about 10 - 2 tbsp servings.
