One pan meals are a great method to use when you hate the massive cleanup process that comes with cooking. Believe it or not, pancakes bake great in a sheet pan, and you don’t have to worry about making sure they’re all the same shape and size. Just slice them into squares and stack them as high as you desire.
Pancakes are one of our favorite meals at any time of day, but because making them can be very hands-on, they aren’t always a go-to breakfast on busy weekdays. If you’re trying to get yourself and the kids out the door in the morning, traditional pancakes just don’t work.
You’re truly going to flip, and in a good way, over these easy sheet pan pancakes! Simply mix the batter, add different toppings, freeze and reheat with ease. Just 15 seconds in the microwave and you’re good to go!
- 4 cups flour
- 4 tsp. sugar
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 4 cups buttermilk
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups chocolate chips (save some to sprinkle on top before baking)
- 3 semi-green bananas
- Set oven to 425˚F
- Grease or spray an 18 x 24 sheet pan.
- In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients together.
- In a separate bowl, combine milk with the beaten eggs. Incorporate the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Add chocolate chips to the mixture and pour batter into the sheet pan.
- Top batter with banana slices
- Bake for 15-20 minutes. To test for doneness, stick a toothpick into the center of the pancakes and if it comes out clean, they’re done.
Note: Kids will love to use cookie cutters to cut their own custom shapes out for their own personalized pancakes.
