Whether served for a special occasion or just a lazy weekend wake-up, breakfast in bed is a simple indulgence that makes any morning brighter. We asked Styer's Garden Café chef Jared Frazer to share a recipe for breakfast in bed with two criteria: it had to be neat enough to eat near our favorite quilts and pillows, and easy enough to make before our first cup of coffee. Jared offered the simple yet satisfying parfait above, topped with a homemade granola of oats, quinoa, and dried fruit. We love the bright colors of this breakfast bowl, as well as its delicious and healthy balance of toasty granola, fresh fruit, and tart yogurt. For a hint of natural sweetness, we stirred maple syrup into the yogurt before serving. Read on for the granola recipe, and surprise someone with a great morning this weekend!
