First off, what are sheet pan pancakes? Sheet pancakes are really one giant pancake that you bake then cut into pieces. In less than five minutes of prep, you mix up your pancake batter in a bowl then pour it into a half sheet pan. For these, sprinkle a handful of blueberries over top just before baking. After that, into the oven they go for just 10 minutes at high heat. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before cutting et voila! You now have a fluffy stack of pancakes filled with fruit and protein that's perfect for busy mornings when you might have otherwise thought a classic, comforting breakfast wasn't an option. Plus these are no-flip pancakes!
Fall is here, which means brisker mornings and, honestly, when is the last time you ate fluffy, homemade pancakes at your desk or while getting the kids together for school in the morning? You can change that asap with this sheet pan protein pancakes recipe. 🙂 I normally turn to sheet pans for savory meals so was excited to try meal prepping an easy breakfast recipe on my sheet pan. This is a one-bowl breakfast and a one-pan breakfast at the same damn time so cleanup will be easy. I'm so pleased with this baked protein pancake recipe and hope you love it, too.

Tips for Making Sheet Pan Protein Pancakes
- What pan should I use for baked sheet pan pancakes? Be sure to use a non-stick pan. My half sheet pan has seen better days (but I can't let it go yet!) so I sprayed it down with avocado oil then lined it with a sheet of parchment paper cut to size.
- How long to bake protein pancakes? Don't do too much while baking pancakes. You'll want to be able to check on them. Especially with this particular Kodiak Cakes mix, as it will be done before the top browns.
- How to know when baked pancakes are done? Your sheet pan protein pancakes are done when the top is slightly golden and springy to the touch. You can insert a toothpick into the center to check for doneness, as well. It should come out clean.
- Can I put protein in my pancake mix? You can add protein to pancake batter with a serving of your favorite protein powder. Just know that the color and/or texture may change slightly.
- How to freeze sheet pancakes? To freeze sheet pan pancakes, allow them to cool and cut into serving size portions. Layer the pancakes in between sheets of wax or parchment paper and store in an airtight container or zipper seal bag. Frozen pancakes will keep this way for about 2 months.
Blueberry sheet pan pancakes are what you need when making pancakes for a crowd or meal prepping breakfast for the whole week. I like to prep these make-ahead protein pancakes at the beginning of the week but since they come together in just 15 minutes, you can easily make them in the mornings, too. Sharing is caring, so be sure to pin this recipe on Pinterest. Thanks for reading!
