How to make pumpkin pie French toast
Slice the bread into sticks and preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl combine the dairy and pumpkin spices.
Dip each stick of bread into the egg mixture, completely coating it. Place each stick in to the air fryer basket.
Air fry for 5 minutes, flip, then air fry another 5 minutes.
Remove from the air fryer. Dust with more cinnamon sugar if you’d like and serve with maple syrup!
Substitute pumpkin purée for apple butter for apple-inspired french toast sticks.
Substitute cow’s milk for almond milk, soy, or oat milk.
I used the soft French bread from the grocery store, but you can also use Italian bread, or anything that is large and soft.
Challah or Brioche work great as well. I used the whole loaf and made them in batches of 8 each.
Can I freeze pumpkin French toast sticks?
You can freeze some of the French toast sticks for a quick and easy breakfast later. Allow them to cool and then place them in plastic wrap or an airtight bag before freezing. When reheating – place them in the air fryer, oven, or microwave until heated throughout!
Tips for the perfect French toast
These sticks are perfect just sprinkled with more cinnamon sugar (aka churro style), dusted with powdered sugar, or drizzled with maple syrup!
Because air fryers can vary in cooking time be sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t overcook!
Sticks should be a nice golden brown but, not overdone.
