Let’s talk about the key pantry ingredients you need for this…

All in all there are 8 ingredients required to make my Roasted Banana Chai Sheet Pan Pancakes and in my home they are ALL pantry basics like eggs, oil, pancake mix, sugar, and cinnamon.

One yellow banana an done roasted banana that the peel has turned black in the oven are sitting next to each other on a cutting board.
Roasted banana || I started roasting bananas when my kid’s were little because they could plow through banana bread faster than bananas could ripen on my counter. Roasting bananas in their peels in the oven allows you to somewhat mimic the flavor profile of a ripened banana in just about 20 minutes, so you’ll never be waiting on perfectly ripened banana again! Although, if you’re looking to use up any overripe bananas you have laying around it makes this recipe even easier, simply omit the roasting step all together and get to baking
Pancake mix || Any type of pancake mix works for this recipe and I do mean ANY type of pancake mix. I was supposed to be sharing this recipe on Atlanta and Company last week, so in anticipation I tested paleo, gluten free, dairy free, store brand gluten-filled pancake mix, and even Bisquick pancake mix versions all with great success. You literally cannot go wrong with this recipe! My personal favorite pancake mix would have to be Pamela’s though,I just LOVE the flavor and texture.
Chai tea topper || Apparently, I have always been a tea bag hoarder because I have quite the collection of tea bags in my pantry right now and cannot remember for the life of me the last time I actually drank a cup! Honestly, I’m more of a coffee girl. Anyways, the crunchy brûlée-esque topping for these Roasted Banana Chai Sheet Pan Pancakes is ridiculously easy to make and it is SO TASTY!!! I even use it to sprinkle over my morning latte, on top of buttered toast for a new twist on cinnamon toast, on ice cream…oh yes friend – now you can chai-ify everything coming out of your kitchen with just a simple sprinkle!

1/4 cup granulated sugar
tea leaves from 1 chai tea bag
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Combine all of the ingredients in a small jar with a tight fitting lid and shake to combine.

Maybe you are wondering, “What if I don’t have all of the ingredients?”

If you don’t have everything on hand to make these right now during this crazy time of social distancing feel free to swap it up with ingredients you do have on hand. Sub in fresh berries for the roasted bananas or try almond extract instead of vanilla. The most important components to this recipe are the ratios of pancake mix to eggs, oil, water, and fruit.

Just check out my Sheet Pan Apple Pancakes recipe, it has the same pancake base, but subs in grated fresh apple for roasted bananas!

Last, but not least let’s talk sheet pan pancake essentials….you know…the sheet pan!!

This recipe requires a quarter-sized sheet pan. Do not try to make it in any other sized sheet pan because the results will not be the same! You could bake these in 2 (8-inch) round or square baking pans if you don’t have the correct sized sheet pan, but I use this sized pan the most in my kitchen and I know if you invest in one you will love it too!
