Say goodbye to standing over the hot griddle and flipping individual pancakes one by one. These sheet pan pancakes are a great way (dare I say… the only way) to make a lot of pancakes at once.

These fluffy baked pancakes are a dream come true for busy mornings and a great option for serving the whole family at once.

These pancakes are made from your favorite boxed pancake mix. Mix in a few simple ingredients like eggs, milk, butter and vanilla and you have homemade pancake mix that creates perfect, fluffy pancakes. Add your own toppings, bake in the oven, cut and serve.

I love making these sheet pancakes for special occasions. I have a bunch of cookie cutters and the entire family has fun cutting out shapes. Use the leftover scraps for snacks throughout the week.

🪄 Tips and Tricks

  • Because we add the milk, eggs, vanilla and butter, the mix you use really doesn’t matter. I make these when I find a boxed mix I don’t particularly love because all the add-ins ensure the end result will be delicious pancakes.
  • Purchase fun cookie cutters or shapes. We even use letter and number cut outs to make this not only fun, but educational.
  • If you have multiple kids, give each one a section to add their own toppings.

👝 How to Store Leftovers

Store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. You can also freeze for up to three months in a freezer bag. Remove frozen pancakes and reheat in a toaster oven.

🤔 Common Questions

Are these gluten-free?

These are gluten-free if you use a gluten-free pancake mix. Make sure any toppings are free of gluten, as well.

How can I make these dairy-free?

To make dairy-free, omit the milk and replace with a plant-based alternative. Instead of butter use vegetable oil, olive oil or coconut oil. Make sure toppings have no dairy.
