Raise your hand if you've ever wanted to eat a peanut butter cup for breakfast. Well, now you can (sort of!). It only takes one of these rich chocolate muffins to satiate your sweet tooth!

Chocolate Flax Snack Cake

Who wants cake for breakfast? This chocolaty treat actually boasts a decent amount of fiber and protein to help you start your day off right. Sprinkle with nuts for extra crunch!

Take your homemade granola to the next level with this indulgent recipe! Add extra texture with dried fruit and nuts of your choice.

Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt

This protein-packed chocolate yogurt tastes just like pudding! It also makes a great lighter dessert option.

Pumpkin and chocolate seems to be a flavor combination that's only popular in the fall, but we like to eat it year-round! Chilling these pumpkin oats overnight makes for a voluminous, creamy breakfast.

Double Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bars

We love the smooth flavor combo of chocolate and banana! These chewy bars get a fun extra crunch with the addition of banana chips.

This naughty-and-nice smoothie recipe tastes like it's high in calories, but it's only 160 for the whole glass! Sweet, silky and completely satisfying.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Quinoa

If you've never had quinoa for breakfast, now is the time to try it! This bowl of peanut-buttery goodness is as comforting as traditional oatmeal. We love adding dried fruit and nuts for extra texture and flavor.

DIY Chocolate Spread

Love Nutella, but hate all the processed ingredients that go into it? This homemade Nutella recipe has no hydrogenated oils, and is lower in calories and fat.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This isn't your grandma's banana bread! The traditional quick bread gets a makeover with studs of chocolate chips and swirls of creamy peanut butter.

Whole-Wheat Pancakes with Orange Chocolate Sauce

Tangy orange and rich chocolate are a perfect match in this pancake recipe! Serve with bacon or sausage for a sweet and savory treat.

Chunky Monkey Breakfast Sandwich

This breakfast sandwich is a childhood favorite of ours! Grill it on a griddle after assembling for a warm, gooey filling.

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Waffles

These chocolate chip waffles never fail to put a smile on everyone's face! Best served with chocolate syrup (or real maple syrup) and a tall glass of orange juice.
