How to make sheet pan pancakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350℉ degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray generously with cooking spray.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking sheet and smooth into an even layer using a spatula. Add your topping(s) of choice.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cooked through and the edges begin to turn light golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Sheet pan Pancakes FAQs

Can you freeze sheet pan pancakes?

Like so many of our recipes, we created this pancake sheet pan recipe with meal prepping in mind. To freeze pancakes, remove the sliced portions to a separate baking sheet or tray placing parchment paper between layers if you’re stacking the pancakes. Place in the freezer until frozen then transfer slices to a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag. Optionally, you can wrap each slice in plastic wrap if you plan to store them for longer than 3 months to prevent freezer burn.

How to reheat sheet pan pancakes

We recommend reheating pancake slices in the microwave covered with a damp paper towel for 30 seconds or until reheated through or reheating in a toaster oven for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

  • To reheat from frozen: Remove the desired portion from the freezer and reheat in the microwave for 60-90 seconds or until heated through. If using a toaster oven, we recommend thawing the pancake slices in the refrigerator overnight then reheating for 2-3 minutes or until heated through
