These count as breakfast, right?

I’ve been on a real chocolate kick since like, um, I don’t know…forever! Thank goodness there are clever recipes out there that include chocolate disguised in a breakfast-y like package. Here are two that I made recently.

Marbled Banana Bread from Post Punk Kitchen. This looks real fancy but was so simple to make!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. These were the perfect portable breakfast sweets.IMG_5009 _SnapseedThere’s a part of my brain that knows these sweet dessert-y foods should not be the meal I start my day off with. But then there’s another LOUDER part of my brain that is saying “Get in mah belly!”

Raspberry Chocolate Sauce

This rich, decadent, vegan raspberry chocolate sauce made an appearance here awhile ago on pancakes. It was so good that I made it again, but this time I actually sorta paid attention to what I was tossing into the magic bullet.

Vegan Raspberry Chocolate Sauce

  • 1/2 tbs extra virgin coconut oil
  • 3/4 to 1 tbs of cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs of agave
  • 8 raspberries

I dumped all of this in our magic bullet (mini-blender) and blended it until smooth. This makes a single serving amount so it won’t blend well in a big blender. If I were to use a bigger blender I would at least double the ingredients.

This sauce was the perfect topping for The Vegan Penny Pincher’s vegan chocolate crock pot cake, but is also delicious on pancakes, vegan ice cream or anything really! Because everything is better with chocolate.
