Goji Berry Protein Cakebars (& a Pancake)

That above is a sliced chocolate Goji Berry Protein Cakebar and this right here is a Goji Berry Protein Pancake with Hummus and Venison steak. What the…? The way I see it, as long as you keep an eye on cooking times and temperatures, you can make all sorts of stuff with your batter. This recipe (and the one I posted before it) is an example of how you can enjoy the same batter in more than one way ;-)

I made the batter when I got back from the gym. Because the oven was engaged (with the grilling of some sausages), I decided to start making pancakes. I made only one pancake though because, as I was about to make some more, the sausages came out of the oven so I threw the batter inside my mini loaf tray and baked the rest as cakebars. While they were baking, I cooked some Venison, cut it up, and ate it on top of the pancake with hummus (thus –> exhibit A).

After I ate my pancake + Venison, I waited a few minutes until the cakebars were baked. Then, I took them out, turned them upside down and placed 1/2 square of 90% chocolate on top of each. Since they were freshly out of the oven and piping hot, this meant that the chocolate just melted on top of them, giving them a nice coating au naturelle. One of them was eaten on the spot and the rest were sliced. Boom: amazing. I sandwiched a piece of 90% between two of the slices and nommmmmmmm :-)))))
