Delightfully crispy-toasted on the outside, and soft in the center, Air Fryer French Toast is as delicious as it is easy to make! Serve it in whole slices, or cut into French Toast sticks for extra syrup-dipping fun.

The end result of my Air Fryer French Toast experience re-confirmed I have yet to make something in my Air Fryer that doesn’t turn out fantastic, including Air Fryer Baked Potatoes and Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets.

This recipe is a twist on my popular Classic French Toast, but I like the air fryer version even better! Feel free to make a large batch and freeze the leftovers; they reheat well in the air fryer.

How to Make Air Fryer French Toast:

  • Add all of the ingredients, except the bread, to a shallow dish and whisk well to combine (or add to a blender and blend until smooth).
  • Cut each slice of bread into into three pieces/sticks(or you can leave the bread slices whole, if you’d like).
  • Spray the fry basket with non stick spray before each batch.
  • Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture, dredging well on both sides, and then place in the fry basket, leaving a little space between each one and laying them in a single later.  Be careful not to overcrowd them or they will not get crispy. (You may need to cook them in 3-4 batches, depending on the size of your air fryer).
The batter ingredients for French toast added to a shallow dish, then mixed together and bread slices dipped in the batter.
  • Air fry at 350 degrees F for 4 minutes then flip them over (separating them from each other if they stick together) and cook for 3-4 more minutes.
  • Serve with homemade syrup or maple syrup.
Battered bread slices placed in an air fryer and then cooked to make air fryer french toast.

Recipe Variations:

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks: mix ⅓ cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a shallow dish.  Dip French toast sticks in batter and then in cinnamon sugar, coating both sides. Air fry as directed.

Brioche French Toast, or Challah Bread: cut loaf into thick slices, and add 2-3 minutes to the cook time, if needed.

Crunchy French Toast: Press the outside of battered bread slices into crushed cornflakes or rice krispies cereal, before adding to the air fryer.

Make Ahead And Freezing Instructions:

To Make Ahead: The batter can be made a day ahead of time, stored in the fridge.

To Freeze: Allow cooked French Toast to cool completely, then place in freezer safe bag or container and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen in air fryer for 3 minutes on 1 side and 2 minutes on the other, at 400 degrees.

    This was delicious! We used brioche, because we had it. I am disappointed that I can’t pin a picture of your beautiful french toast, though! I tend to pass right over the recipes on my Pinterest boards that only have text instead of pictures. 😕

    I was a little skeptical about making french toast in the air fryer but I’m a huge fan now! Literally the most delicious ever. I cut them into stick and loved them that way.
