Chocolate for Breakfast


Is it strange that many mornings we eat chocolate in some form for breakfast?

I've learned a lot of ways to make nutritious food taste more like a treat.
(A little chocolate goes a long way!)
But that's not necessarily a good thing.
In our house of, ahem, selective eaters, it means that probably about half of my kids' calories come from the following foods, combined in various forms:
peanut butter
oatmeal
cocoa
milk
ground flaxseed
bananas
honey
protein powder
applesauce
chocolate chips

(Note the striking absence of vegetables...)

Those are pretty much our stand-by foods--at least for snacks.
Some of our usual breakfast recipes:
Breakfast Cookies (I use applesauce instead of a banana and chocolate chips instead of raisins.)
Oil-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (I add a handful of chocolate chips...are you seeing a theme here?)
Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal (I leave off the powdered sugar glaze)

Cereal fills my kids up for approximately 7 minutes so we try to go for heftier breakfasts.
What are some of your favorites?
