5 Healthy Chocolate Breakfasts: Kid and Mom Approved

Shout out to these fellow Pittsburgh bloggers who know what’s up when it comes to doing breakfast right. I’m not talking about chocolate cake or candy bars. I’m talking about breakfast recipes that are simple, healthy AND include chocolate, my friends. Who can argue with that? Hello, healthy chocolate breakfasts! 

Now I, personally, love breakfast foods. In fact, I love breakfast foods any time of day.

But that doesn’t seem to be the case with all 3 of my boys. In fact 2 of the 3 could easily go without breakfast if I didn’t make them sit down to eat it before school. So, to make that first meal of the day much more appealing to my boys (and to this mom too, let’s be honest), why not mix healthy with a little sweet? 

Check out these amazing recipes for chocolate breakfasts and use the comments below to add your favorites to the list!

Healthy Chocolate Breakfasts

1. Banana Muffins with Olive Oil and Dark Chocolate by How Sweet It Is

Now for real, dark chocolate is good for you, so I say, why not make it a breakfast staple? These muffins are a kid favorite. 

 

2. Whole Wheat Double Chocolate Banana Bread with Toasted Coconut from With the Grains

Looks like cake, am I right? But actually made with real, wholesome ingredients. You’re welcome. 

 

3. No Bake Superfood Breakfast Cookies by The Almond Eater

It’s pretty hard to argue with cookies for breakfast, especially ones that are packed with such chocolatey goodness! 

 

4. Chocolate Peanut Butter Refrigerator Oats from Emily Levenson

If you haven’t tried overnight oats yet, let this be your introduction. So simple, and so delicious!
