    Yayyyyyy! Chocolate has to be my favorite theme of all! I absolutely love all of these recipes. The baked chocolate chip oatmeal looks just like a milkshake sundae muffin! 😀 Great recommendations once again!

    Amazing how chocolate is both a delicious dessert and healthy/acceptable breakfast option! Another fun aspect of chocolate is that it pairs well with anything. Especially some of my favorite foods that are featured here: bananas, peanut butter, coffee, more chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, and zuchini. Since next week’s theme is fruit, I don’t see why chocolate can’t be a part the instaworthy creations again. Plus February is less than a week away which means more chocolate consumption for Valentine’s Day (insert eye roll). But hey, anytime of year is a good time for chocolate. And I’m taking the good stuff. Not the last minute gift box from the drugstore.
