Ingredients for vegan blueberry pancakes
Of course, you can use your favorite vegan pancake recipe and simply bake it in a large baking pan. Or you can try this blueberry pancake recipe and let me know how you like it!
The ingredients for these blueberry pancakes are your standard blueberry pancake ingredients:
- 3 cups all purpose flour (or use 1.5 cups each whole wheat flour and all purpose flour - I make this substitution in most of my baked goods!)
- 3 cups plant milk (I typically use almond or soy)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder (that's 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
- ⅓ cup maple syrup (or use agave syrup or brown sugar)
- 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
You will also need:
- A 12 x 16 inch baking pan / cookie sheet pan. You can get some here on Amazon if you don't have one
- Parchment paper wide enough to cover your baking pan
How to make sheet pan pancakes
Making sheet pan pancakes is even easier than making regular pancakes!
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 12 x 16 inch baking sheet with parchment paper and brush with oil or spray with coconut oil spray. The parchment paper is key to getting the pancakes to release from the pan and be easy to slice into squares!
Step 2: Combine the apple cider vinegar and milk in a medium bowl and let it sit and thicken / curdle a bit while you grab the rest of the ingredients. This will serve as a vegan buttermilk substitute for these pancakes to help make the pancakes super fluffy after the apple cider vinegar reacts with the baking powder.
Step 3: Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl: mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
Step 4: Add the vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut oil to the milk mixture and stir. If using brown sugar, you can add the sugar to the wet *or* dry ingredients - it won't make a difference.
Step 5: Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking together until just fully combined.
Step 6: Pour the pancake batter into a 12 x16 inch sheet pan that is lined with parchment paper. Smooth out the batter, either by giving the pan a gently tap, or by smoothing it out with a spatula.
No, I did not forget the blueberries in the instructions!!
You can stir in the blueberries in Step 6 and bake the pancakes for ~20-25 minutes, or until fully baked. But if you want some of the gorgeous blueberries to float on top of baked pancakes, the trick is to let the pancake batter bake for 5 minutes, and then sprinkle the blueberries on top. This way the blueberries won't all sink into the batter.
It's totally up to you how you choose to do it. If you've got a busy morning and you know you're going to forget the darn blueberries, then just sprinkle the blueberries on top in step 6.
Step 7: Bake for about 5 minutes, then sprinkle the blueberries on top. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until fully baked and a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice into squares and use a spatula to serve into individual plates.
Serve with maple syrup and fresh blueberries on top. Enjoy!

- 3 cups plant milk, such as soy or almond
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 3 cups all purpose flour, (or substitute half with whole wheat flour)
- 4 teaspoons baking powder, (1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon)
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tbsp vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted, or vegetable oil
- ⅓ cup maple syrup, or agave syrup or brown sugar
- 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
- 12 x 16 inch baking pan
- Coconut oil spray
- Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a 12 x 16 inch baking pan with parchment paper and spray or brush with coconut oil.
- In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the milk and apple cider vinegar. Let it sit while you prepare the rest so it thickens a bit.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk together to combine and set aside.
- Add the vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut oil to the milk mixture and stir.
- Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, whisking together until fully combined.
- Pour the pancake batter into a 12 x 16 inch sheet pan that is lined with parchment paper. Give it a gently tap to smooth out the batter, or use a spatula to smooth it out.
- Bake for about 5 minutes, then sprinkle the blueberries on top. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until fully baked and a toothpick comes out clean. Serve with maple syrup and more blueberries on top. Enjoy!
- The parchment paper is key to ensuring your pancakes don't stick to the pan!
- The pancakes will be super fluffy if you use apple cider vinegar. The vinegar reacts with the baking powder making the batter puff and get fluffy
- If you add the blueberries before you bake the pancakes, they will sink to the bottom, that’s why you need to bake it for 5 minutes at first. If you don't want to remember to add the blueberries, just sprinkle them on the batter on the baking sheet before baking
