Breakfast-in-bed recipe idea: Fresh Berry Parfait with Muesli Honey Bars
A simple and delicious treat featuring berries of any kind, yogurt, and homemade muesli bars!
Recipe from: Co+op, Stronger Together


Muesli Honey Bars:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup (half a stick) unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 8 ounces muesli of your choice


  • 4 cups fresh berries of your choice, chopped
  • 8 cups vanilla or plain yogurt
  • Honey for topping


  1. For the Muesli Honey Bars: Butter a shallow 11x17-inch baking pan and line with wax paper. In a large bowl set over a pan of simmering water, combine honey, butter, and chocolate, and stir until melted and combined. Remove from heat and stir in all but 1/4 cup muesli. Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle and press remaining muesli on top and refrigerate 1-2 hours, until set. Remove from pan and cut into 8-16 bars.
  2. For the parfaits: In a large glass, layer fruit and yogurt until full. Top with additional berries and a squeeze of honey.
  3. Push one Muesli Honey Bar into the top of each parfait to serve, or crumble one bar over each parfait.
