How to prep quick and easy, blueberry sheet pancakes for a crowd or breakfast meal prep idea.
What does your weekday morning situation look like? Probably busy. Maybe sometimes hectic. I'm guessing fluffy blueberry pancakes are not a part of it. They weren't part of mine until a couple of weeks ago. That's when I made my first batch of sheet pan pancakes. And now, I'm never looking back! Making a dozen protein packed pancakes in just 15 minutes is a life-changing experience that will undoubtedly change your weekday mornings for the better. I'm here to help you with that. Today, you'll learn how to make sheet pan protein pancakes using Kodiak Cakes flapjack mix and just three other ingredients. Easy is an understatement, sis.

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!
What You'll Need for this Recipe
- Fresh Blueberries
- Kodiak Cakes Almond Poppy Seed Flapjack & Waffle Mix
- Milk - Use plant-based or dairy milk of your choosing!
Grab a large mixing bowl and either a whisk or silicone spatula to bring your protein pancake batter together. And, of course a simple set of measuring cups and a half-size sheet pan for baking a large batch of pancakes all at once!
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.

This worked fantastically. And we all got hot pancakes! I had the plain mix, no blueberries. and it was great with strawberries and cream, or traditional maple syrup. Made in a jelly roll pan.

These are the perfect pancakes for a low carb diet- or just a healthier alternative!
I love the idea of baking my pancakes on a sheetpan! It makes breakfast for a crowd much easier!
The perfect way to enjoy pancakes any day of the week. Looks delicious!
I absolutely love sheet pan meals! Never thought about making pancakes. Making this over the weekend!

Hello! Can you use any flavor of Kodiak mix? I love the idea of easy pancakes! And have you ever done these in a mini muffin tin? That might be fun too!
Hi, Sara! You can use any flavor Kodiak mix you like. I've made this with a bunch of them and they turn out great. I haven't done mini muffins yet but that's a good idea. 🙂
Thank you for showing me the easiest way to make delicious pancakes! My husband and I enjoyed it and decided this is how we will make pancakes from now on!
You're so welcome, Kryslynn. Glad you enjoyed!
I've never tried Sheet Pan Pancakes but these look so fluffy and easy to make!
I'm saving this for Thanksgiving week to feed a healthy breakfast to the family!
I made these and put half in individual bowls to take to work for a fast breakfast and froze the other half. I've been eating the frozen ones for dinner some nights with a little peanut butter and a tiny bit of syrup and they are amazing! The blueberries are a delicious and nice touch! I'm making a new batch tonight to add to my freezer stash. I love these!
I’m so glad these have worked well for you, Brandy. Your peanut butter idea is great for extra protein!
What size sheet pan worked well for you? Thank you!
1/2 sheet pan!
I'm late to the party with these, but had to comment that these have completely changed how I make pancakes for my kids! They never really cared about fancy shapes, so I just made silver dollar pancakes before, but always had that "first pancake" that wasn't as good. Now, I make sheet pancakes with chocolate chips or berries and they are all fluffy, yummy, and made in less than 20 minutes (with 15 minutes for me to make myself coffee!).
So glad these work for your family, Samantha! Thank you for your feedback.
Who knew that sheet pan pancakes could actually be life-changing! These days when preparing pancakes for one, I break out the cast iron pan only on Sundays. With your recipe, I can whip up a batch and grab some out of the freezer whenever I want. Pancakes for breakfast on a Tuesday, brunch on the weekend, and dare I say, for dinner! After yet another long day of quarantining, I dine on chocolate cherry pancakes for dinner in the age of the pandemic. Imagine that. Thank you😊

I made these tonight as part of my meal prep for the week. They looked so good that I had some for dinner tonight with SF syrup and really enjoyed them. I used Fairlife milk for an extra protein boost! These will be going in to heavy rotation!
So glad you enjoyed these already, Lindsey!
Thanks for this great idea!
