4 Chocolate & Coffee Recipes That May or May Not Make You Skinny

The Dream Team
If you had told me that this week would bring the news that both chocolate and coffee can help you lose weight, I would have slapped you and called you a liar. Yet it's true! Hooray!

I love me some coffee. Probably too much, if my Peet's bill is any indication. So when I heard about this study that connects weight loss with green coffee beans, I ran and asked my barista for a cup. Unfortunately, I'm totally on the wrong track, as green coffee beans mean unroasted. Which means, no coffee for you, fatty.

Naturally my next question is, can I get those green coffee beans chocolate covered? No? Okay, what if I do this --


Four amazoids coffee and chocolate recipes I found on the world wide web that I can only hope are totally good for me.

Chocolate Iced Coffee

Someone is a genius!

Peppermint Chocolate Coffee

This one comes from Paula Deen so you know it's good for you, right? Right?!?!

Chocolate Chip Coffee Muffins

Because nobody said anything about sugar consumption. Yet.

Yeasted Chocoalte Coffee Cake

Martha says this is the way to go, and combining cinnamon and chocolate while drinking your coffee sounds like the best possible way to lose some pounds, amiright?

Okay, so the extract of a green coffee bean is especially bitter and would probably ruin all of the above recipes. However, a girl can dream. After all, someone told us chocolate and coffee beans cause weight loss this week, what's next? Let's hope it's that dairy products prevent acne.

Would you try this for weight loss?
