Ingredients of Air Fryer French Toast

Four thick slices of bread (brioche or challah work best)

Two large eggs

1/3 cup milk

One teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

One tablespoon of granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

One tablespoon unsalted butter, melted (for greasing)

Air Fryer French Toast Preparation

To create a smooth and well-blended mixture, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, sugar, and cinnamon.

Lightly brush the inside of the air fryer basket with melted butter to grease it.

Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, soaking it thoroughly on both sides. Gently shake off any excess egg back into the bowl.

Place two slices of soaked bread into the air fryer basket without overlapping.

Cook at 360°F for 4-5 minutes until the underside is deep golden brown.

To achieve optimal results, it’s recommended to utilize tongs for the gentle flipping of each slice. Cook each slice for approximately 2-3 minutes until both sides are equally crispy and browned, resulting in a delicious, well-cooked dish.

Repeat steps 3-6 for the remaining slices of bread.


With significantly less oil than deep-fried french toast, this air fryer version contains fewer calories and minimal fat. Using whole eggs provides a good amount of protein to keep you full and satisfied all morning long. The grain bread offers essential nutrients like fiber, iron, and B vitamins. Topping with fresh fruit adds beneficial antioxidants and natural sweetness.


Air frying reinvented French toast before my eyes, genuinely taking this breakfast classic from simple to spectacular. The technology delivered next-level crispy edges and evenly cooked centers without requiring flipping or babysitting. Just a few minutes was all it took to achieve the golden browned, custardy texture I crave in perfect French toast strips.

While the traditional stovetop method often results in underdone centers while the exterior overbrowns, the circulating hot air of the air fryer permits precise, fuss-free cooking. Every square inch heats to the ideal doneness from edge to edge, so no flipping is necessary. And thanks to the nonstick basket, the bread crisped up beautifully, even without much added grease.

Cleanup was also a breeze – with minimal added butter and contained basket cooking, there was hardly any mess or splatter at all. Just pop out the crispy French toast sticks and wipe down the basket, and I’m ready to eat. This leisurely yet indulgent breakfast will now be on weekly rotation for my family, especially with little ones who love dipping the crispy edges in syrup and bitesizing their French toast. Air frying made mornings stress-free and memorable at the same time. Give it a try!
