Sheet Pan Pancakes

I love the ease of throwing a batch of pancake batter onto a baking pan and cooking the whole thing up in one go—to reduce the amount of time I need to stand in front of the stove flipping them one at a time. Sheet pan pancakes are both convenient and versatile, and this one has whole grains and delicious apple flavor.

We love to cut baked pancakes into squares and serve them with maple syrup, applesauce, or apple butter. They’re also delish topped with peanut or almond butter, or a little yogurt. Use whichever you like!

Honestly, you can make almost any pancake mix or pancake recipe on a sheet pan. Here’s a look at how to make this one, which we love to have for weekend breakfast and to warm up during the week.

Ingredients You Need

Here’s a look at the ingredients you need to make this pancake recipe so you know what to have on hand.

ingredients in sheet pan pancakes on counter.
  • Whole wheat flour: This adds nutrition and provides a hearty base for the pancakes.
  • Rolled oats: I add rolled oats for additional fiber and whole grains. They blend right into the batter.
  • Baking powder and baking soda: This duo helps ensure the pancakes will rise and bake through.
  • Cinnamon: This pairs nicely with the apple in the recipe and adds extra flavor.
  • Eggs: Eggs in this recipe help the batter to bake through and hold together.
  • Milk: You can use dairy or nondairy milk. I typically use whole milk.
  • Unsalted butter: Melted butter that is slightly cooled is best so it blends into the batter but isn’t hot when you add it to the eggs.
  • Vanilla extract: This adds more flavor and pairs nicely with the apple and cinnamon.
  • Shredded apple: From about 1 medium apple; you can include the peel. Any apple you prefer will work here. I tend to use Pink Lady, Granny Smith, or Honeycrisp.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make sheet pan pancakes?

You simply pour pancake batter onto a greased or lined baking pan and bake in the oven until set. I prefer to line my pan with parchment paper so the pan is not scratched when cutting the pancakes.

How can I make vegan sheet pan pancakes without eggs?

The best option for making egg-free pancakes is to use a store bought egg replacer like the one from Just Eggs or Bob’s Red Mill. You can use nondairy milk and vegan butter or melted coconut oil.

Can I use other fruit in these?

Sure, you can swap in diced fruit like strawberries, blueberries, or diced bananas if you prefer. You could also use chocolate chips.

Pancake Recipe Variations

Swap in diced fruit such as bananas or strawberries, blueberries, or chocolate chips for the shredded apple as you like to vary the flavor of these. You could also use chocolate chips.

How to Store

To store leftovers, let pancakes cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Warm for 15-30 seconds in the microwave and serve warm. You can also freeze for up to 3 months in a zip-top freezer bag.

Best Tips for Success

  • Gluten-free: Use cup-for-cup gluten-free flour instead of the whole wheat and certified gluten-free rolled oats.
  • Dairy-free: Use plain nondairy milk and coconut oil or canola oil for the butter.
  • Egg-free: Use a favorite store-bought egg substitute like the one from Bob’s Red Mill.
  • Top with additional applesauce, apple butter, peanut butter, butter, fresh berries, or maple syrup as desired.
