I’m kind of obsessed with breakfast and brunch, and thankfully my family is too! We especially love getting creative with French Toast, and thus we created these French Toast Muffins! These little muffins were such a huge hit. They were a cinch to make and could easily be prepped the night before, refrigerated overnight and then baked in the morning. These would be perfect for special occasions, holidays or just for rushed weekday breakfasts.

These French Toast Cups have all the same flavors as the favorite breakfast classic, but in bite-sized form! You get all the cinnamon-sugar goodness of regular french toast without having to dip or flip any bread! Not to mention, the special streusel topping. It’s really something! And the texture is slightly crispy, yet perfectly soft. The best part about these muffins is that they’re made with pantry staples.

How to make French Toast Muffins:

  1. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Add the cubed bread into the mixture and toss gently to combine. Scoop 1/3 cup of the mixture into each well of the muffin tin.
  4. To make the streusel topping: in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, break the butter into small pea-size clumps. Sprinkle the streusel mixture over the tops of the muffins.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan and serving.

  1. I made the French Toast Muffins this morning. They were amazing! I used cinnamon raisin bread, and served with syrup & powdered sugar.

  2. If I want to make these ahead of time, would I make the recipe, leave it in the bowl overnight in the refrigerator, and then put them in muffin tins then next morning or do you put the mixture in the muffin tin to leave overnight?

  3. These look amazing I want to make them for breakfast this morning but I’m on ww and will be tweeking them just a little bit (almond milk, stevia, and can’t believe its not butter spray), but I’m wondering how they would be with diced strawberry’s in them? I’m going to give it a try and let ya know how it goes. love your recipes keep them coming
