  • Ready in 15 minutes – All moms and busy families with busy mornings want this, right? Plus, the kodiak cakes mix is pre-made for you. Just add your liquid of choice, eggs and fruit and it’s possible for weekday mornings.
  • Great for picky eaters– This is a great option for picky eaters because they can add their own toppings.
  • Family friendly– Anything with sprinkles is bound to be a favorite among kids! Traditional pancakes are classic, but if you want something fun and different, you’ll love these easy sheet pan pancakes! We make them when we have cousins/guests over or just want a one pan breakfast sheet pan for the whole family. It’s like one giant pancake that you can divy up into smaller portions.
  • High in protein – While it is generally easy to get carbohydrate foods into kids, getting protein in can be harder at times. These sheet pan protein pancakes do the work for you and have protein baked in, plus more from the eggs and milk you’re using.
  • Great for lunches and dinners – Not only are these sheet pan kodiak cakes great for a meal prep breakfast, but they are also an easy re-heat lunch or dinner option and perfect for a weekend brunch. In fact, since they are packed with protein, they can be a great protein idea for kids lunches!

Grease a 13×18 sheetpan with cooking spray or butter. Add mixed pancake batter to a large sheet pan, spreading it out evenly.

Top with any fruit you’d like and then bake for 12-14 minutes, or until pancakes are golden brown and cooked through.


If you’re using the birthday cake flavor, it’s normal for the sprinkles to sink down into the batter before baking. You will still taste them and see them in the finished product. You can also feel free to add your own into the mix.
