What You Need
The batter for this sheet pan pancakes recipe will look extremely similar to any ordinary pancake batter. That’s because it’s essentially a pancake recipe baked on a sheet pan. Here’s what you need:
- All purpose flour: AP flour is light and airy. We wanted to get classic pancake texture, which is why we went with all purpose flour.
- Baking powder: baking powder is the levening agent.
- Blueberries: blueberries is our flavor add, but you can really add what ever your heart desires. Scroll down to check out sojme suggestions.
- Maple syrup: we love sweetening our pancakes with maple syrup and this is no exception!
- Eggs: eggs help bind everything together, but also help make this pancake nice and fluffy.
- Vanilla: vanilla is used to bring out the flavors of maple and blueberries.
- Almonst milk: almond milk is our milk of choice, but really any kind of milk will work for this recipe.
- Coconut oil: a little bit of fat will help make this sheet pan pancake recipe nice and moist.
Can I use a different flour?
All-purpose flour is going to give you a light and fluffy sheet pan pancake. However, you can try swapping the flour 1:1 for an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend or white whole wheat flour.
We do not suggest swapping for a nut-based flour such as almond flour or coconut flour.
Can I use pancake mix instead?
While we haven’t actually tested using pancake mix with this particular recipe, we have made a similar recipe once before.
We’re confident that you can swap out the all-purpose flour and baking powder for 2 cups of pancake mix. Our favorite? Kodiak Cakes!
Other Flavor Ideas
This sheet pan pancakes recipe is a super simple one to deviate from. You’ll notice that we kept things super simple with fresh blueberries, but you can also you a variety of different flavor combos.
Instead of using fresh blueberries, use any of the following ideas:
Banana Chocolate Chip: add in 1 mashed banana and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Apple Cinnamon: add in 1/2 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup chopped apples,. and more ground cinnamon.
Triple Berry: add in 1 cup frozen mixed berries.
Protein: try swapping 1/4 cup of flour for 1/4 cup of vanilla protein powder to amp up the protein in this recipe.
A Few Tips
Don’t Over Mix: As always when it comes to baked goods and pancakes, try not to overmix your batter or you might end up with a dense pancake.
Use a Quarter Baking Sheet: it’s important to note that we used a 9×13-inch quarter baking sheet and not a standard-sized one. If you don’t have a quarter baking sheet, you can try using a 9×9-inch baking dish. However, you’ll have to increase the bake time as you’ll have a deeper pancake.
Let your sheet pan pancakes cool completely. Then, slice them into single servings. transfer them into an airtight container and remove as much air as possible. Store in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.
