French Toast Muffin Cups

These French Toast Muffin Cups are addicting! They are soft and fluffy on the inside and perfectly crunchy on the outside. These make a great make ahead breakfast for kids on the go.

The muffins can also be made ahead of time. You can make these the night before and portion them out in the muffin tin and top with the streusel topping. All you have to do the next morning is bake!

French Toast Muffin Cups

I used leftover croissants to make my French Toast Muffin Cups. You could also use challah bread, brioche or white bread.

Serve these Muffin Cups with a drizzle of maple syrup, butter, honey or powdered sugar. Enjoy!

French Toast Muffin Cups

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 cups cubed bread I used croissants. White, challah or brioche would also work

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter cold
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

French Toast Muffin Cups

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a regular sized muffin tin with non stick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. Gently toss in the cubed bread.
  4. Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cups. There should be about 1/3 cup in each cavity.
  5. Prepare the streusel topping and sprinkle on top of the muffins.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Serve immediately with maple syrup and powdered sugar if desired.

Streusel Topping

      Hi Angela,

      Sorry about that. You don’t need to pre-bake the topping, just pulse the ingredients in a food processor for a few seconds to make a crumble topping and sprinkle on top of the muffins before baking. I hope this helps, and let us know if you have any questions. Thank you so much for the comment and for trying out this recipe!

      Hi Celeste,

      They are 191 Calories per muffin. I eat 2 (382 calories) with a cup of blueberries (85 calories) and a coffee with a splash of milk (28-54 calories) for a breakfast that is less than or right around 500 calories in total. I hope you enjoy!
