While I am a big advocate of breakfast, I’m starting to find my eggs and toast to be a tad redundant. Okay, very redundant. And seeing I’ve a sweet tooth to rival most four year olds, there’s always a hankering to add some sweetness to my morning routine. Particularly if it’s cocoa centric…

Dreamy Dark Chocolate Scones 

Unlike the typical Australian or British scones based off flour and milk, dreamy dark chocolate scones from Peas and Crayons are fluffy, filling and chock full of chocolate chips. A typical sweet ‘scone’ clocks in at around 500-600 calories a piece and is loaded with sugar, but these beauties only use 1/4 cup in the entire recipe!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie 

I am yet to find a combination that pairs better than chocolate and peanut butter (except maybe strawberries and cream!) so why not incorporate both in the first meal of the day? Kudos to Clean Eats Fast Feets for this. Using dates and a frozen banana to sweeten, this smoothie is like dessert, enhanced by the creaminess of the Greek Yogurt (and a bonus protein boost!).

Black Forest Smoothie

For those who aren’t fans of peanut butter (in my books they should only get a pass if it’s allergy related) but still love a smoothie there’s this one that tastes like cake! Black forest cake to be specific!  Running with Spoons (pictured) know how to do it right. Frozen cherries and rolled oats provide a dough like texture which is so thick, you’d need a spoon to dig into it!

Chocolate raspberry porridge

Care of Our Body Book, this might well take the chocolate for breakfast cake because right now it’s cold, and well, porridge is just super warming. Plus, with the antioxidants of raspberries you know you’re onto a good thing.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Breakfast Cookies for one 

Clearly I’m a fan of the chocolate/peanut butter combination and throw in the prospect of eating cookies for breakfast and bed times are set to become my favourite part of the day. This chocolate/peanut butter combination from This Big Man’s World take less than 10 minutes to whip up and eating the whole serving is very much allowed!

Chocolate Covered Orange Pancakes 

Don’t let pancakes be just for the weekend or for when you’re looking to treat yourself- This stack of perfection has your name all over it. It’s a healthy combination of carbohydrates, healthy fats and a punch of protein, that together provide a balanced meal for the everyday.
