That's right, be prepared to ditch your beloved avocado toast and gluten-free cereral there is a new food trend to get your head around when you are thinking of that healthy breakky!

Food trend expert Liz Moskow, from Denver, told Food Business News that new studies point to the health benefits of cocoa - which could put chocolate and "amuse-bouche" chocolate cakes onto breakfast and brunch menus in restaurants. WHOOP!

"There was a study that recently came out from Syracuse University re-touting the benefits of dark chocolate, specifically on cognitive function - abstract reasoning, memory, focus.

"The thought was eating chocolate prepares you more for your workday, so what better day part to incorporate dark chocolate into your meal than breakfast?"

Another study from Tel Aviv University, which found that eating a dessert at breakfast supports weight loss.

Even better, the researchers recommended eating chocolate cake specifically because our metabolisms are most active in the mornings.

Health experts suggest any benefits will be undermined if the meal contains loads of sugar and fat - but a low sugar, dark chocolate cake is a good option.
