Bite-Size Black Forest Cakes recipe

by Laura Marquis

Laura Marquis, owner of Naturally Healthy Desserts, is on a mission to revolutionize desserts. We met on Periscope (Find us @ignitegirlsfitness and @healthymarquis) during the 4th annual IgniteGirls Sugar Momma Challenge™ and stayed in touch even after the sugar-free online event. Her desserts almost look too pretty to eat. (I said almost!)


Lucky for us, she will be sharing some exclusive recipes from her upcoming (unreleased!) cookbook, Sweets in the Raw, this month on the IgniteGirls® blog. She will also come up with a brand spankin’ new recipe to share with us… Any guesses on what it might be?! Stay tuned for more updates on her book that will be published later this Spring.
