Easy and Delicious Sheet Pan Pancake Recipe

Jump to Recipe

It’s hard to beat a classic pancake, but I think we did it! These sheet pan pancakes are quick and easy to prep and you can either serve a crowd, or freeze the extra servings for easy breakfasts later on. I was thrilled with how good these turned out in the oven vs. cooking them on the stovetop!

I was nervous to pour an entire mixing bowl full of pancake batter onto my sheet pan. But I get nervous for lots of things that I don’t need to be nervous for. Don’t be like me! Just do it! There was literally nothing to worry about.

Why I love this sheet pan pancake recipe

These came out really good and fluffy, and were very filling! It’s hard to beat the taste of cooking something on a buttered skillet— but for WAY less work and also having a whole batch to add to the freezer…I’ll definitely make them again and again!

I hesitated to try baked pancakes because the texture is one of my favorite parts about pancakes. To my surprise, you still get a delightfully fluffy pancake with this method!

Also, I made them a few days ago and reheated leftovers in the microwave (straight from the freezer) for breakfast this AM and they were just as good! Love to have a low-prep option to feed a whole family, and even better if they give us some delicious leftovers!

I like to serve them with a side of berries for a complete, nutritious meal.

Customizable Sheet Pan Pancakes

If everyone likes different pancake toppings, you can make everyone happy! The sheet pan is large enough to make a section dedicated to each person. In my house we typically do blueberries for me, chocolate chips for my daughter’s section, and banana for my son!

I would 100% make this for a brunch get together so that you’re not standing at the stove cooking, and everyone can dig in at the same time.

Ingredients Needed

Sheet Pan Pancake Ingredients Top Down Shot
  • 4 cups @kodiakcakes Buttermilk pancake mix (you’ll use almost the entire box)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups milk (I used 2% milk)
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Optional add-ins:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Berries (any kind)
  • Chopped nuts
  • Any add-ins you like in your pancakes!

I have made this recipe with 2% milk and whole milk, and it turns out great! I also tried using almond milk, and it wasn’t nearly as good so I recommend sticking with whole or 2%!

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. 
  2. Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray and then cover with a layer of parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients. 
  4. Pour onto the pan, and top with any toppings you’d like!
  5. Optional: you could add fruit, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or a combination of those things. I like to do different toppings in different quadrants of the sheet pan, so that the people eating can choose their own adventure if they like one topping more than another!
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until slightly brown on the edges and cooked through in the center. 
  7. Slice and serve!

Recipe FAQs

Can I serve this for dinner?

YES! Breakfast, lunch, breakfast for dinner, cut a piece off for snack-time- any of these work! Pancakes can actually be a great, well-rounded meal (or snack) for any time. 

What should I put in it?

My personal favorites are blueberries and chocolate chips (separately or together, if you’re feeling crazy!), but banana nut or cinnamon could be great options, too! I also LOVE topping it with some warm nut butter. Cashew butter is my all time fave.

Can I use a different pancake mix?

You could, but the ingredient dimensions are based on this particular mix, so you might have to adjust your liquid ratio. I love using Kodiak Cakes because not only are they delicious, but they’re formulated with lots of protein for a well-rounded meal. 

Expert Tips

Freeze the extras for easy reheating on a morning/night you don’t feel like cooking. Or better yet, double the recipe and make 2 sheet pans- one for now and one for later. Your groggy self will thank you next Saturday when your kids get up at 6 am.

To freeze them, slice into individual portions, then lay flat in a freezer ziploc bag, or in another air-tight freezer friendly container. Freeze for up to 2 months!

Nutrition tip for you

Pancakes are one of my favorite ways to add in little nutritional boosters. They’re so customizable! You can always sprinkle in hemp seeds, chia seeds, or flax seeds (if your kids don’t mind the texture) or top with butter or nut butter for some extra fat and calories. I sometimes even whip together some full fat Greek yogurt and nut butter as a dip for pancakes (or waffles), but a little bit of 100% maple syrup is great, too!

This is a great and healthy recipe – bonus that they don’t ask for syrup on top because it’s so good on its own! My kids love to help with the toppings on and it comes together quickly. I recommend going heavy on the toppings – it puffs up pretty thick and the first time we found some bites without fruit. Love! Thanks for sharing!

I trusted you ….and I’m glad I did! Toddler friendly – easy recipe to have help doing sprinkles and other add ins on top. Let me free up my time in the kitchen making the rest of breakfast instead of babysitting a pancake skillet. Thank you!

Would this work with trader joes protein pancake mix? My son is allergic to eggs so it’s a good option for us… thank you!

Is this a half sheet pan size? Do you think using all milk would be ok?

    Hi Martine! Yes, I think using all milk would be okay and you are correct, this is a half sheet pan size. Enjoy the recipe!
