These Instant Pot pancake bites are so fun! We made protein pancakes with blueberries as you can see here, traditional Instant Pot pancakes as well as gluten free pancakes when a friend came over. Once you have an Instant Pot egg mold the possibilities are endless! One of our favorite breakfast Instant Pot recipes. (originally published 12/18, affiliate links present)

We first began with making these pressure cooker egg bites that are similar to a crustless quiche.

Great when taken on the go for breakfast on busy mornings.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

This is what we used for our first batch, we will share other methods below as well but if you haven’t tried protein packed pancake mix it’s pretty good and great if you’re on a lower carb diet.

  • I added fresh blueberries to this batch because that is my favorite fruit and a great size for pancake bites I thought.
  • I probably wouldn’t use frozen blueberries or another berry for that matter.

My thought is that they’d sweat a bit in the cooking process and would make the pancake bites a bit wetter.

They may not cook thoroughly all the way through if so.

I’d imagine diced fresh, yellow, bananas would work well too though. That is our next add in.

For the protein pancake mix you use:

  • 1 cup mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 c blueberries if you choose to add those

This will make 1 full batch of pressure cooker pancake bites which is 7 total.

Like I said this Instant Pot egg mold works really well and does not require any non stick spray as it is made of silicone and allows you to literally POP the pancakes right out with no issue.

It does stay warm for a little while once you take it out but cools off rather quickly so you can push one out on to a plate and serve them.

  • Refill them and make another round if you want more too.

If you have ever “baked” anything in your pressure cooker you do know that there is a bit of a different texture so don’t be alarmed if it is bit off from traditional pancakes.

These are a great crazy morning breakfast option for us…and we hope you love them too.

Looks yummy right??!!

Difference between protein pancake mix and other mixes

  • Protein packed is a bit more dense but has a ton of protein per pancake bite

Instant Pot Pancake Bites

  1. Prepare

    Pour 1.5 c water into your Instant Pot, lower your trivet inside your pot. Use flapjacks directions on Kodiak cake box which requires 1 c mix + 1 c water. Mix well.

    Add blueberries if you like. We used fresh fruit. Pour pancake batter into each hole inside your egg bites mold, 3/4 full. Cover with foil and lower into your pot on top of your trivet.

  2. Cook

    Set to pressure high pressure for 8 minutes cooking time. Do NOT quick release. Allow to naturally release for 5 minutes, then release rest of steam.

    Carefully lift mold out, remove foil, allow to cool enough to handle mold. Flip egg mold over on to a plate and pop each pancake bite out of each hole.

  3. Serve

    Eat with a small cup of syrup to dip them in.

Do you only add water for the gluten free bisquick option as well? The recipe on the box calls for milk, vegetable oil and an egg (we use egg replacer due to allergies) when making them the traditional way. Thank you!

Can you use bisquick mix?

Have you tried replacing a portion of the water with maple syrup to have the flavor and no dripping, to make them portable? I have done this with pancakes made the on the stove and works well; just wondering if it would work with bites.

Thank you, thank you! I make these all the time (usually two molds at a time). Delicious! It even works with frozen berries or chocolate chips.

It took mine like 6 min to get to pressure ... wasn't expecting that! Currently waiting to see how this turns out
