What are sheet pan pancakes?

Sheet pan pancakes are similar to the classic stack but instead of making individual pancakes, you’ll simply bake all the batter together in a pan. Once it’s baked, you can slice into squares and serve.

Here we are using a fun 8” heart-shaped pan that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. However, you can also just use a regular 8×8” pan. 

Are these sheet pan pancakes healthy?

These pancakes call for simple and nourishing ingredients including blueberries, oat flour, and ground flaxseed. Learn more about why these ingredients are beneficial for our health, especially our heart.

Benefits of blueberries

Blueberries are one of our favorites! For this pancake bake, fresh blueberries add a pop of flavor, color, and nutrients, but you can also use frozen blueberries in this recipe too – more on that later. Pro tip: I always keep frozen blues stashed in my freezer so I have a flavorful and nutritious snack at the ready — no extra grocery trip required.

Fresh blueberries are a good source of vitamin C and an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese. They also contain phytonutrients like “anthocyanins,” a type of pigment which gives these berries their bright blue hue. 

A growing body of scientific evidence shows blueberries can be considered a heart-healthy fruit. For example, blueberries are a good source of dietary fiber (4 grams per 1 cup serving), which can help to promote overall heart health. And according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a healthy dietary pattern which includes a higher intake of fruits, is associated with a reduced risk of many chronic diseases, including heart disease.

Benefits of oat flour

Oat flour is simply rolled oats that have been blended into a fine powder. You can buy oat flour in store or even make your own at home.

Oats are a type of whole grain, filled with satiating protein and fiber. Research has also shown that oats may play a role in reducing the risk of heart disease. To get a bit science-y, oats contain something called “beta-glucan” which may help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels.

Plus, oat flour is gluten-free, making it a good alternative to traditional all-purpose flour. If you have celiac disease, always be sure to still check the label for the GF certification as some oat flours may be processed in facilities that handle gluten.

Benefits of flaxseed

Flaxseed is a rich source of omega-3 fats, which have been linked to various heart health benefits.We love adding flaxseed to everything from granola to 1-minute mug cakes!

How do you make sheet pan pancakes?

Regular flapjacks are fun but pancakes in a pan are even better because they’re fuss-free. You don’t have to worry about making in batches or getting batter everywhere. Instead, follow these simple steps to perfect this blueberry bake.

Ingredients on white marble

1. Gather your ingredients

Before starting, round up all the ingredients you need to make these pancakes. We also recommend looking at the topping options—make sure you have something fun to add on top!

2. Mix together batter

We like to mix the ingredients separately then add the wet into the dry for the most consistent batter. But honestly, you could get away with just throwing everything into one bowl, we won’t tell.

3. Pour into pan

If you want to make heart shaped pancakes, add your batter into a festive heart shaped pan. This recipe makes a small batch of batter so be sure to use a spatula to get every last drop out.

4. Bake until cooked through

You’ll only need 15 minutes before popping these sheet pan pancakes out of the oven. Just enough time to clean up and prep your toppings while it’s baking!

Other tips and tricks

  • Spooning out the oat flour – We recommend spooning the oat flour into a measuring cup before leveling out. This ensures the oat flour doesn’t get too compact. If you’re unsure of the amount, try using a kitchen scale to weigh out the flour to 120 grams.
  • Batter consistency – The batter should be somewhat fluid but not overly dry. If you’re finding the batter too liquidy, mix in a spoonful of flour. If you’re finding the batter too dry, add a splash of milk.
  • Blueberries – We like to use fresh blueberries for this recipe to make sure the pancake bake doesn’t get soggy. If you’re using frozen blueberries, be sure to let them thaw completely before using them in the recipe.

Customize it your way

Like all of my other recipes, this pancake bake is completely customizable. You get to choose what ingredients and toppings you want to use.

  • Milk of your choice – Use whatever you have on hand or prefer to fit your dietary needs.
  • Liquid sweetener – We like to use maple syrup but honey, agave syrup, and date syrup are also good options.
  • Oat flour – If you don’t have oat flour on hand or don’t like the taste, feel free to swap for regular flour or your favorite gluten-free flour blend.
  • Egg – Eggs can be hard to come by nowadays! If you don’t have an egg or are vegan, feel free to swap for a “flax egg”.

Can you make sheet pancakes ahead of time?

You can add the batter to your pan and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours. This means it’s perfect to make ahead of time and enjoy for breakfast the next day. The recipe feeds about four, but you can always double the recipe and use a larger pan.

You can also store any leftover cooked pancakes in the fridge for 3-5 days. That means they’re ideal for meal prep! Simply microwave for 30 seconds to reheat.
