Sheet Pan Pancakes made with homemade pancake batter and topped with chocolate chips, strawberries, and raspberries let you make pancakes for a crowd without flipping them over the stove top for an hour.
Everyone loves pancakes, but since they are hands on work for the person cooking, they aren’t always good for a big family or a party. Someone tends to get stuck in the kitchen flipping pancake after pancake. And, by the time all the pancakes are done, the first pancakes are already cold.
Sheet pan pancakes solve all those issues, and you can bake a couple pans at a time. Fill them with different toppings and offer different flavors to spice things up, but don't forget the fruit or maple syrup! They're the perfect way to enjoy delicious pancakes on busy mornings too!

Sheet pan pancakes are a favorite in our household. They are the perfect breakfast treat for everyone from kids to adults. Here’s why the whole family loves this easy breakfast recipe:

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
- Pancake batter: Homemade batter is always better, but if your in a hurry, you can always use a box of your favorite pancake mix (such as bisquick mix) and bake it following the directions.
- Use different toppings: For this recipe, I used strawberries, peanut butter, chocolate chips, raspberries, blueberries, and sprinkles, but you can use any toppings you prefer or any fresh fruit.
- Milk: Whole milk makes the pancakes fluffier, but if you have lactose sensitivities, you could use a dairy free milk like soy milk. I also love to make buttermilk sheet pan pancakes when I have some in the fridge too. Just replace the milk with buttermilk for extra fluffy pancakes.
