I woke up on Sunday to a Jack Johnson kinda morning. Rain was lightly falling, a breeze whipped the branches of our olive trees, and it was a lazy morning that begged for banana pancakes.

Sunday morning pancakes have always been a tradition at our house, but the truth is, in recent years, I sometimes find myself feeling unmotivated to flip pancakes at the griddle. Even with the extra time I’ve had in the last couple of months, I couldn’t be bothered.

But with the warm rain falling, it seemed like the perfect excuse to spoil the family with pancakes. Rather than flipping pancakes to serve each person (and ultimately being the last to eat), I decided sheet pan pancakes were the logical solution.

How to Make Sheet Pan Pancakes

Oven-baked pancakes are a thing? Yes, they are!

Here’s the beauty of sheet pan pancakes: (1) you can feed everyone at the same time, (2) no flipping required, (3) they’re adaptable to whatever mix-ins you love. Because banana pancakes are a favorite with my family, I topped mine with thin slices of banana and cinnamon sugar. These easy banana pancakes bake in minutes and I love that we can all enjoy them together, at the same time!

Step by step instructions for how to make sheet pan banana pancakes: mixing the flour.

The ingredients are pretty much the same as my favorite pancakes, but rather than melting the butter (and dirtying another bowl), I cut the butter into the flour, almost as though I were making scones or biscuits.

Step by step instructions for how to make sheet pan banana pancakes: adding butter and mixing eggs and kefir or buttermilk.

As for the milk, buttermilk is usually my first choice, but lately I’ve been really loving kefir. Kefir is a fermented milk rich in probiotics (more than yogurt, even!) and a great substitute for buttermilk in baking. Use whatever you have on hand.

As for the toppings, bananas are always a hit at my house, but throw in some nuts or chocolate chips! Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are also amazing. Chopped up apples are delicious, too! You can have so much fun with these!

Sheet Pan Banana Pancakes Tips/FAQs

  • Should I use kefir or buttermilk? I love either option in this recipe. Buttermilk is, of course, makes for a traditional pancake, and if you do use buttermilk, be sure to use a good quality, thick buttermilk. I personally love Clover buttermilk. However, I also love kefir – the consistency is similar to buttermilk, and this fermented milk is rich in probiotics.
  • What is the easiest way to spread the batter? I like using a large offset spatula. Be gentle with the batter and do not tap the batter in the pan to help keep the pancake as fluffy as possible.
  • Can the pancakes be frozen? Yes! Cool the pancakes completely on a wire rack. Store the pancakes with a sheet of parchment or wax paper between each pancake in a freezer-safe container. This will make it easy for you to separate one pancake and reheat it!
  • How to reheat frozen pancakes: The easiest way to reheat frozen pancakes is in the microwave. Place between 1-4 pancakes on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Reheat in 20-second increments until warmed through.
