Who doesn’t love French toast? And who wouldn’t love a fun way to eat them? These crispy French toast sticks do just that—turning them from fork-cutting goodness into dipping deliciousness.
Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes
5 slices Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Bread
⅓ cup milk
2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
confectioners’ sugar for dusting (optional)
maple syrup for dipping (optional)
1. Preheat the air fryer to 370°F. While that’s heating up, cut each slice of bread into 3 pieces and set aside. Combine the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon in a shallow bowl, whisking to combine. Dip each stick of bread into the mix, coating both sides and ends. Lay a piece of parchment paper in the air fryer basket, then put French toast sticks onto the parchment paper.
2. Cook the toast sticks for 5 minutes, then with tongs flip them over and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove the toast sticks from the air fryer. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve immediately dusted with confectioners’ sugar or with maple syrup for dipping, if using.
