Want to know the secret to not slaving over the stove on pancake day? Sheet pans! These Sheet Pan Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes are easy to make and delicious too!
I love pancakes. They remind me of childhood and family time. When my kids were younger, I made pancakes a lot, but when they got bigger and started eating more, I found I was just spending too much time standing over a pan.
So, we stopped making pancakes very often, but I still crave them sometimes, especially with my crazy appetite these days. Then I discovered a new way to make pancakes. An easier and less intensive method – sheet pan baking!
Instead of standing over the stove trying to make sure each pancake is cooked perfectly then trying to keep them all warm, now we can just pour it all into one pan, pop it into the oven and the entire pan is ready at once. It’s so convenient!
We used blueberries in this recipe, but you can swap those out for your favorite berries or another soft fruit like peaches when they’re in season. Or you could even do chocolate chips for a special treat on a birthday or holiday!
I hope that you find this method of making pancakes to be much easier and less time consuming for your family!
