Blueberry Sheet Pan Pancakes
Sheet pan pancakes are made for parents who love to make homemade pancakes but don’t love all the time standing around the stove. 🙋♀️
There are so many other things to do early on a weekend morning besides standing in the kitchen.
You could be sitting on your porch have a cup of coffee ☕️
You could be snuggling with your little one while having a cup of coffee ☕️
You could be playing a board game with your kiddo while sipping your morning coffee ☕️
As you can see, coffee is pretty much the only thing on my agenda until noon 😍☕️😃
It’s a good thing these fluffy, whole grain pancakes can be prepped in under 5 minutes before popping them into the oven where they finish off baking.
You can top them with blueberries or any fruit your family prefers – sliced strawberries, raspberries, chunks of peaches or sliced bananas.
Serve with a side of maple syrup to dip them in, a slice of bacon, some scrambled eggs and of course another cup of coffee for an epic weekend breakfast!

Blueberry Sheet Pan Pancakes Ingredients
- White Whole Wheat Flour: I love using white whole wheat flour because it has more fiber and nutritional value in it. You can also use 1 cup of wheat flour and 1 cup of white wheat or all-purpose as well. I found that the straight up wheat flour is a little heavy for us, but if it works for you then go for it!
- Milk: you can use any milk you prefer – cows, almond, soy, hemp, cashew, oat, etc. We usually use almond milk in this recipe. Just make sure you use a plain or unflavored flavor with the plant based milks.
- Eggs: I recommend using organic pasture-raised egg when cooking for kids.
- Applesauce: use unsweetened no-sugar applesauce in this recipe. I would recommend using an organic applesauce as apples are on the dirty dozen food list.
- Oil: you can use either olive oil or coconut oil in this recipe. I like that the olive oil gives this recipe a hint of earthiness to it that I think balances out the sweetness of the applesauce.
- Blueberries: little jewels full of antioxidants, fiber and vitamin K and c. They are a superfood that kids usually love to eat! You can also sub in any other fruit your kids prefer – strawberries, raspberries, finely chopped apples, peaches, blackberries, ect.
- Flour: you can definitely use a 1:1 gluten free flour blend in place of the white wheat flour in this recipe. This is my favorite brand.
- Eggs: you can use flax eggs in this recipe instead of the real eggs if needed.
- Milk: you can use any plant based milk you prefer – almond, coconut, hemp, etc.
