As a mom, I live and die by EASY recipes. While there are absolutely some days where I have the time and energy to make something involved, those days are few and far between lately. The truth is that most of the time I’m looking to make something delicious, fast and EASY for our family.

Enter these super Easy Sheet Pan Pancakes!

With two toddlers, we eat a lot of pancakes in our house. I have so many wonderful memories growing up of my dad and grandfather cooking hot, fresh and fluffy pancakes every Sunday… but some days it’s impossible to find the time!

That’s why I love this easy Sheet Pan Pancake recipe. While you can absolutely make your own pancake mix, this recipe is created with ease in mind and I use… store bought pancake mix! I know, the horror. But seriously, these Sheet Pan Pancakes come out perfect every single time, and the premade mix means that I can literally prep, mix and cook these up for a crowd in less than 10 minutes!

You end up with technically one giant pancake the size of your sheet pan, which becomes 12 square pancakes when you cut it up. Every single pancake is tender and fluffy, and ready in a fraction of the time it would normally take to cook 12 pancakes on your stovetop!

Here’s an Instagram Reel I made that shows you just how easy, fast and simple it really is to whip up this great breakfast any day of the week!

Pancake Mix-in Ideas

If your family is anything like ours, I’m sure everyone prefers their own flavors and toppings on their pancakes, right?? Well, these oven baked pancakes make that so easy!

  • Fruit – Nearly any sliced fruit works! We love bananas, strawberries and blueberries.
  • Chocolate Chips – Semi-sweet Chocolate chips are usually the most popular option, but you can also just mix a few flavors or choose your favorite.
  • Lemon and Poppy Seeds: Lemon zest, lemon juice and some poppy seeds add a bright fun flavor to these and are perfect for spring and summer! Some small pockets of ricotta cheese spooned on top make it even more indulgent.
  • Peanut Butter – Add peanut butter chips to the batter and top with a warmed fruit sauce or jam for the best PB&J ever.
  • Nutella – Add a few small spoonfuls of Nutella after pouring the batter into the pan, and then swirl it in with a toothpick before baking.
  • Dessert – After baking, top them with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate!

Picky family members and only one tray? Just sprinkle one half of the tray with mix-in #1, and the other half with mix-in #2. DONE.

Easy Sheet Pan Pancakes (Oven Baked Pancakes)

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Sheet Pan Pancakes (also known as oven baked pancakes) are the easiest way to whip up breakfast in a fraction of the time! These are perfect for when you’re serving a crowd, or you just plain don’t want to stand around all morning making breakfast 😉

Ingredients

  • Store Bought Pancake Mix
  • Water or Milk
  • Syrup
  • Additional Toppings like fruit, chocolate chips and whipped cream

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line your baking sheet with foil and spray well with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Mix up your favorite store-bought pancake batter (or a made from scratch recipe you love). Depending on your mix, stick to the directions that call for either 1 or 2 cups of mix. Let the batter sit for a few minutes.
  4. Pour the pancake batter in even layer onto baking sheet. Gently shake the sheet pan to make sure that the batter is evenly spread, but be careful not to shake or knock the pan too hard (as this may deflate the batter).
  5. If you want to add any toppings like chocolate chips or sliced fruit, add gently add to top of the batter on the tray.
  6. Place the sheet pan in the center of your oven and bake for 5 - 7 minutes. Check the pancakes at 5 minutes - the pancakes are done if the center of the pancake is springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. If they need more time, check every 2-3 minutes.
  7. If you would like for your pancakes to look more golden brown, brush the surface of the pancake with melted butter and place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes. They can very quickly burn, so be sure to keep an eye on them!
  8. Remove from the oven and slice the pancakes while hot into 12 individual square pancakes.
  9. Serve warm with whipped cream, syrup and other toppings!
