Once you make these easy vegan sheet pan pancakes, you’ll never want to make pancakes another way again! Fluffy, soft, and perfectly sweet!
If you love pancakes, but hate the process of standing around the stove while you make 2-3 at a time, then you will absolutely love vegan sheet pan pancakes.
You still take your base recipe for pancakes, give or take, but instead of pouring the batter a little at a time into a skillet, you pour the entire batter into a greased sheet pan and bake.
Literally it’s that simple.
This is less than 10 minutes of prep and ready in under 30 minutes. You can add in your favorite toppings and get super creative with how swap out the ingredients.

VEGAN SHEET PAN PANCAKES INGREDIENTS:
Below are notes about the ingredients before we get into the full recipe located lower in this post on how to make this easy sheet pancakes recipe:
- Dairy Free Milk and Apple Cider Vinegar– When combined, these two ingredients mimic buttermilk which is the flavor that we want in this recipe.
- flour– the star of the show! we really recommend using all-purpose flour
- vegan sugar– We add a little sugar since these are supposed to be sweet biscuits. If you want to learn more about why your sugar may not be vegan, you can learn more by clicking on the link.
- baking powder– This is helping us get the rise we need from the flour when baking and the baking soda is helping in that as well
- vanilla – helps to enhance the flavor
- salt– do not omit here, the salt helps to tighten the gluten strains, but also really brings the flavor out
- coconut cream – the thick part on top of chilled canned coconut milk is what we are using for this recipe. We are using this as an egg replacer for this recipe, but also helps with texture as well
- oil – helps with moisture, texture, and richness. We are using vegetable oil in the recipe in our photos
- toppings – get creative! In the photos, we are using sliced fresh strawberries and chocolate chips; however, we have a full list of ideas below
SUBSTITUTIONS AND VARIATIONS:
- Flour – can use a 1:1 gluten free blend if needed
- Apple Cider Vinegar– white vinegar or lemon juice could be subbed
- vegan sugar– brown sugar, granulated date sugar or coconut sugar could be substituted
- Oil – use your favorite baking safe oil or vegan butter instead of vegetable oil
- Coconut Cream – Subs for the coconut cream include: flax egg (2 tbsp ground flax with 6 tbsp water and let sit for 10 minutes), or 1/2 cup of one of the following: unsweetened applesauce, banana, pumpkin or sweet potato puree, or non-dairy yogurt. Some of these may alter taste and texture.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Yes! In the photo above there are two different pan sizes being used. On the left, an 18×13 baking sheet was used and it shows a thinner pancake. Still very fluffy compared to traditional pancakes though. This will give you more pancake pieces as it’s spread out more though. On the right, we used a 13×9 pan. That gives you a smaller amount but so much fluffier.
Yes! Non-dairy milk, flour and coconut cream are the ingredients we need to look at!
Use whatever non-dairy milk is safe for you.
For gluten free, we have had the best of luck with King Arthur Measure for Measure flour.
For the coconut cream, view the substitution list above – we’d recommend flax eggs.
Yes! Let cool completely and then leave in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Of course. Whether you want to eat the entire batch at one time or you just need a couple here and there, you can totally freeze the remaining in an air tight freezer container or bag. We recommend placing individual cut pieces on a wax sheet and flash freezing for 30-60 minutes, then moving to the container of choice.

- Carrot Cake – add shredded carrots to the top and add in warm spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg
- Macadamia Cookies – finely chopped macadamia nuts and vegan white chocolate chips
- Raspberry White Chocolate – use chopped raspberries and vegan white chocolate chips. Adding a little raspberry extract here is great as well
- Orange Cranberry – zest from a full orange, swap half the non-dairy milk for orange juice, and add chopped cranberries on top (fresh preferred, but dried would work too)
- Mixed Berry – add a mixture of chopped strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries

- Lemon Blueberry – zest from a full lemon, use lemon juice instead of apple cider vinegar, and replace 1/4 of the vanilla extract with lemon extract. Add blueberries to the top (fresh preferred, but dried would work too)
- “Bacon” – cooked, chopped vegan bacon on top, this is also great if you swap half the cane sugar with maple syrup or go “Elvis” with bananas and chocolate chips added with vegan bacon
- Zucchini – shredded zucchini (squeeze out as much liquid as you can). Also great with warm spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg
- Tropical – use coconut milk, add chopped fresh pineapple and coconut shreds to the top (if using canned, drain very well)
