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!

- 2 cups Whole Milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

This looks yummy!!! Iknow what Texas Toast Is; i buy it fairly often; however, in watching the video, the bread you use looks a pale yellow in color . . . almost like a sweet bread. is it, or did you use just ordinary white texas toast? Thank you!!!
Hi Jean- it’s regular white bread but it did have somewhat of a yellow color! It was just the brand of bread that I used while filming the video! 🙂 I hope that you love this recipe!
Could i use leftiver donuts instead of toast?
thank you! I run a bakery and want to use my day old donuts, will post a picture when i do!!
I didn’t find this to be very tasty. However, it was dry and difficult to get out of the muffin tin. And yes, i followed the recipe.
Sorry to hear that you didn’t have a great experience with this recipe, Becky. Thanks for your input!
These are fantastic!! Am i able yo refrigerate overnight and heat the next morning?
Has this been made with apples? I am thinking of dicing an apple and mixing it in. Just wondering how it has turned out
Yummm! I haven’t tried this before but it sounds super delicious! I’d love to hear how it turns out.
