Fluffy, whole grain Greek yogurt pancakes stuffed with vanilla-flavored ricotta and blueberry preserves create a decadent-tasting breakfast or snack that kids love! These Healthy Blueberry Cheesecake Pancake Sandwiches are an easy, make-ahead, high-protein addition to your weekday menu.

Healthy Blueberry Cheesecake Pancake Sandwiches

If you haven’t noticed, we LOVE pancakes in this house! I’ve already shared my Snowman Pancakes, Healthy Banana Pancakes, Healthy Greek Yogurt Lemon Blueberry Pancakes, Eggnog Pancakes, Sneaky Healthy Chocolate Pancakes, and Gingerbread Oatmeal Protein Pancakes. But these, my friends! These have skyrocketed to the top of my list! They are so good, so nutritious, and so easy!

One reason that we eat so many pancakes is that they are a meal that everyone agrees on, and that I can make in advance. I cook a large batch or two on the weekend, pop the extras in the freezer, and then we can reheat them in the  microwave or toaster oven any morning that we need a quick meal. And hey, we’ve been known to eat them for dinner on many occasions, too!

These particular sandwiches are made with a fluffy, moist, whole grain Greek yogurt pancake that I adore. I add just a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter, which gives them so much flavor on their own that they don’t even need syrup. But you know what?

If you’re not interested in making your own pancakes from scratch, I won’t tell! You can use a mix you can even use some pre-made frozen pancakes. They might not be quite as healthy, but they will still taste amazing!

The ricotta filling adds a great dose of protein and a creamy component to the meal, making the pancake sandwiches especially satisfying and nutritious! They are perfect for breakfast, but they also make a great snack or lunchbox option. I even eat the left-over pancakes cold (straight out of the refrigerator) with the toppings smooshed in between. I love them anyway that I can get them!
