The title of this post pretty much says it all... I mean, what is not exciting about getting to enjoy some guilt free brownies with that #DeLaLuz touch?! In my chocolate addict opinion, it doesn’t get any better than that! And I'm sure I am not alone in this addiction! That's why I'm so in love with this recipe... it’s the best of both worlds! 

Chef Marcela is all about embracing the phrase "you are what you eat," and we at #CasaMarcela are true believers that health is wealth! Marcela makes it a priority to feed her family dishes that are not only tasty, but also healthy, since your body is truly your temple. That's super cliché, yes, but it's so true! So go treat yourself with something that’s good for your temple! 

Until next time, amigos. 

Love, Marla
