Say hello to my new favorite breakfast! Not only is it incredibly delicious, but it pleases the whole family – even my picky toddlers! – and can be frozen and reheated for individual breakfasts on the go. And it’s FRENCH TOAST in a cute little MUFFIN. What’s not to love here??
These tasty little breakfast beauties are made in about 35 minutes and only call for 6 – that’s right SIX – ingredients. You’ll want to use thick sliced Texas toast style bread for this recipe. That’s my number one tip for soft and fluffy, never overly dense, French toast muffins.
Slice the bread into cubes and place it in a large bowl. Next you’ll whisk together eggs, vanilla, sugar, and some Horizon Organic Whole Milk and pour it over your bread cubes. I encourage my family to live a healthy lifestyle by fueling them with ingredients I know are delicious and nutritious, like Horizon Organic Milk. Knowing I’m packing wholesome goodness into these French toast muffins makes me that much happier about my family devouring every last one from the batch.
Once you’ve got the bread and egg mixture all tossed together, fill your muffin tin, being sure to pack each one really full – don’t be afraid to let the bread cubes extend above the pan, the higher the better! Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the top (my favorite part!) and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown and your kitchen smells like cinnamon-sugar heaven.
Drizzle with syrup or sprinkle with powdered sugar for the ultimate family-friends breakfast treat. Let any extras cool completely before wrapping and freezing for quick and easy individual breakfasts throughout the week! These Baked Cinnamon French Toast Muffins are completely delicious and so easy to make, I know you and your family will go nuts for them!

Baked Cinnamon French Toast Muffins
- 14 slices Texas toast style bread
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups Whole Milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons sugar - divided
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- powdered sugar or syrup for serving
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 12-cavity muffin tin. Cut bread slices into cubes and place in a large bowl.
- In a medium bowl whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons sugar. Pour over bread cubes, then gently stir to coat all the cubes in the egg mixture. Fill muffin tins with soaked bread cubes, packing gently to fill all of the cavity space.

- Serve warm topped with powdered sugar or syrup. To freeze for later, wrap individually in plastic wrap. To reheat, unwrap and microwave for 30-60 seconds.
I made these yesterday with some leftover crusty rolls. They were fabulous and we all loved them!
There are several “mini muffin sizes. I myself have two different mini muffin pans. I might be the only fuzzy head who doesn”t understand, but it surely would be helpful to know what mini muffin size (ounces? inches?) you used in this recipe. I”m looking forward to making these. I”ve made several of your recipes, and I”ve never been disappointed.
The pan that I used has 12 cavities in it! I believe they are about two inches across. Hope this helps!
Are these Freezable? Looks like a great idea for a quick breakfast.
Hi Laura- Yes! They are for sure freezable! They heat up like a dream and make for a good quick, on the go if needed, breakfast!
how do i print this recipe
Thank you for this recipe! I made this tonight and it was a huge hit. I couldn’t find Texas toast style bread, so I used almost all of a loaf of french bread from my store’s bakery department. I will definitely make this again!
Perfect!! Great idea! Any bread can be used as long as its sliced thick! So happy to hear that you loved it! Thanks for sharing!
