No more egg drip mess or flipping! These Air Fryer French Toast Bites are the quickest way to crispy edges and fluffy insides. Just toss the bread cubes and egg mixture, then air fry! Easy anytime breakfast in 15 minutes!



  • 3 large eggs
  • 23 tablespoons milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces hearty white bread such as sourdough or day old French bread, (about 4-5 slices) cut into large cubes
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • avocado oil or parchment paper
  • for topping: powdered sugar, maple syrup, strawberries


  1. Whisk egg mixture: In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs (3), milk (2-3 tablespoons), maple syrup (1 tablespoon) and salt (1/4 teaspoon) until well combined.
  2. Add bread & cinnamon: Next, add all the bread cubes (~6 ounces) to the egg mixture bowl. Use tongs or a rubber spatula to mix well until the egg mixture has been soaked up and no dry spots remain on the bread cubes. Sprinkle cinnamon (1 teaspoon) over the bread cubes as you stir in order to evenly disperse the cinnamon. If lots of egg mixture remains in the bottom of the bowl, let the bread cubes sit in egg mixture for more 2-3 minutes, then continue stirring until most of it is soaked up.
  3. Air fry: Use a paper towel to generously wipe avocado oil on the bottom of the air fryer basket, or line with air fryer safe parchment paper. Place the soaked bread cubes into the air fryer in a single layer, not touching as much as possible. Air fry at 350F for 7-10 minutes, checking and shaking the basket after 5 minutes. Separate any cubes stuck together and continue cooking until the the french toast bites are crispy and golden brown.
  4. Serve & store: Serve immediately with maple syrup and powdered sugar. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 3 days. Leftovers can be reheated in the air fryer at 350F for 3-4 minutes.


Air Fryer: Cook time is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If you make more than one batch or start with a warm air fryer, you may need to decrease cook time by 1-2 minutes.

Bread: You can use dry or slightly stale bread for this recipe – add an additional 1 TB milk and let the bread cubes sit in the egg mixture until it’s completely soaked up. 

Servings: One batch of french toast bites serves 2 as a main, or 4-6 as a side! Nutrition information estimated for 2 servings with My Fitness Pal and includes no toppings.
