Recipe: Gluten-Free Sheet Pan Chocolate Chip Pancakes

by JJ Virgin on June 29, 2020

Usually pancakes are reserved for those lazy weekend mornings when I can justify being stuck in front of a hot skillet for half an hour. By the time the batter is all used up, everyone else has already eaten and most likely the last pancake is burned…

Not anymore!

Sheet pan pancakes are so quick and easy that you can whip up a batch on a busy weekday morning and still have time to sip your collagen coffee. And you can sit and eat together as a family, instead of feeling like a short-order cook!

The best part is, by omitting potentially harmful ingredients like gluten, dairy, and sugar – you can still enjoy pancakes without the empty carbs and mid-morning sugar crash that usually follows.

We loved these so much that we experimented with coconut and gluten-free oat flour. If you choose to substitute the almond flour, add an additional 1/4 cup of almond milk to ensure a fluffy, moist texture.

This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled to accommodate a bigger crowd. Or while the oven is hot, make a double batch to freeze for those busy mornings.

Pancakes are endlessly versatile. Think blueberry-vanilla, cinnamon-pecan, or freeze-dried raspberry with dark chocolate.  And if you just can’t choose one type to make, you don’t have to – do half and half!
