Sheet Pan Pancakes - the fastest way to make pancakes! Topped with bananas and chocolate and baked to fluffy squares, these pancakes are a must for a weekend breakfast.
I used my recipe for Chocolate Chip Pancakes to make this sheet pan version. Another favorite is my Pancake Muffins. They are a huge hit with the kids!
I have a new kitchen hack, a shortcut that makes breakfast a breeze. No more standing by the stove and flipping pancakes. You can bake your pancake batter in a large sheet pan in just 14 minutes! Top with fruit, chocolate or whatever you like and bake into fluffy squares. Stack up on a plate and drizzle with maple syrup and watch them disappear.
I make pancakes each Sunday. My kids always get excited the night before. I have a fail-proof recipe for thick and fluffy pancakes that my whole family loves. Now I have a new way to cook them! Enter Sheet Pan Pancakes.
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- buttermilk (see my homemade substitution)
- vanilla extract
How to make Sheet Pan Pancakes?
- Prepare batter as usual, but instead of cooking it on a griddle pan, pour it onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Add topping is desired and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
- Once done, cut the giant pancake into squares, stack them up on plates and serve with maple syrup or warmed up peanut butter. So delicious!! Or cool completely, place in a Ziploc bag and freeze for later.
- any fresh fruit
- chopped nuts
- shredded coconut
- fruit syrups
How to make them for a crowd?
If you have a crowd to feed, make two sheets with doubled batter. Let everyone choose toppings and make it a fun breakfast or brunch event. One sheet pan makes enough pancakes for 4 to 5 people (depending on if you are feeding adults or children).

Sheet Pan Pancakes
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup + 2 Tablespoons half and half see note
- 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 large egg
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 banana sliced
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large 13" x 9" rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt).
- In a measuring cup, combine half and half and apple cider vinegar. Stir few times and let sit 2 to 3 minutes. It should thicken up and half and half should sour. You just made buttermilk.
- Add egg, oil and vanilla to buttermilk mixture. Whisk until smooth.
- Add the wet ingredients and chocolate chips to dry ingredients and stir to combine. Do not overmix.
- Spread the batter onto prepared baking sheet. Top with slices of banana and chocolate chips.
- bake for 13 to 15 minutes. The top should be golden and dry.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
- Cut into squares and serve with maple syrup or warmed up peanut butter.
- You can freeze cooled squares in a ziploc bag for up to 1 month. Thaw out and reheat in microwave.
- Half and half is a mixture of equal parts of whole milk and light cream. It is in my opinion the best for making homemade buttermilk, that makes pancakes thick and fluffy. You can use whole milk in it's place but the pancakes won't rise as much.

So much better than making individual pancakes! And super delicious. The kids started eating them without toppings cause they’re that good. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Would you consider putting up the same recipe with measurements for a larger pan (eg. 15x10) for a bigger batch?
These are awesome! We definitely like them more than just the general pancakes.
That's fantastic! Thank you so much, Kayla!

These were amazing.... All I can say....gotta get more before they are all gone.
Hi Diana! I am so happy to know you love this recipe. Yay! Thank you for letting me know!
Will a double batch of this fit into a large sheet pan (12.5x17.5)
Tessie Lou says
I’m so happy I found this recipe, my family loved it!
Hi Tessie Lou! That's wonderful! I am so happy to know you and your family love it!
Hi! I’m all about homemade baking but when a time crunch or out of an ingredient, can you still use store bought pancake batter and if so would they come out the same?
Hi Cris! Yes, absolutely! You will just need to make sure you have a large enough sheet pan. I tested this recipe with my homemade pancake recipe that fits perfectly in the 13" x 9" pan. I hope this helps!
Marilyn Hunt says
Awesome recipe! I haven't made pancakes in quite a while because it's just so time consuming. I used my oven for double duty and baked my bacon at the same time as the pancakes, and the family raved about the pancakes. Best pancake breakfast ever!
Has anyone made these with a just add water mix? I am thinking of using a protein instant pancake mix so it can be an easy on the go school breakfast. Any help on oven temp and baking time would be great. Thanks!
Lyn Burnes says
this looks like An amazing recipe! Could you please help me understand where I add the 3 Tbs of sugar?
Thank you so much!
Hi Lyn! It should be whisked with all of the dry ingredients. Thanks for catching that! I updated the recipe. Let me know if you make this recipe and how you like it! Have a beautiful day! -Anna
Michelle G. says
This looks awesome! I have a question though: in the ingredients it says "see note" about half and half, but I don't see a note about it. Am I missing something?
Hi Michelle! You are right! I forgot to add the info. It's updated now with the explanation of what half and half is and why I recommend it in this recipe. Hope this helps! Thanks!
Could you substitute whole milk for half and half?
Hi Jen! Yes, you can however the pancakes won't be as fluffy. I tested with both and half and half makes the best homemade buttermilk. I hope this helps! Let me know if you try this recipe!
I LOVE this idea!! The pancakes came out so thick and fluffy and perfect! Pinned!
Thank you, Sues!!
WHOA. You've just possibly made pancakes a weekly occurrence here for my family of 9! Usually I avoid them because who wants to spend 2 hours over a stove on a Saturday morning, but this is pretty freaking genius.
Love your site!!!
Yay! You will love it, Nicole! It's so easy and the kids can help too. 😀 Thank you!!
This is a genius idea! Love not having to flip pancakes!
Right? I am all about saving time in the kitchen. Thanks, Averie!
