I am not sure what my favourite part of this recipe is. Is it the fact that it feels like I am having dessert for breakfast? Is it that it is ready in about 3 minutes? Is it the fact that I get to have a little bit of chocolate for breakfast? Or is it that it is all of those things and it is healthy too? I know there will be some raised eyebrows towards chocolate being a healthy addition to a breakfast, but it is just a tiny, tiny bit of dark chocolate which has many healthy benefits.

Also, I usually find that if I have a little bit of chocolate at breakfast (even if it is just cocoa powder in my morning smoothie), then it satisfies that craving for the rest of the day. Whereas if I don’t have it at breakfast, then I have the rest of the day to think about chocolate and I am more likely to overeat it later in the day. Plus, I usually like to get higher sugar/higher calorie items out of the way earlier on in the day, before my workout.
Of course, you don’t have to have this for breakfast. It is a totally awesome choice for a lightened up dessert too. Dave (Mr HHH) is going to be disappointed when he sees that I had this for breakfast whilst he was at work today. So this is going to be his dessert tonight. I just hope I left enough chocolate chips!
If you don’t like Greek yoghurt, then use another yoghurt, just make sure you check the ingredients to make sure there are not any hidden weird ingredients.
