Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast is the perfect combination for a delicious breakfast! Based on my basic french toast recipe, this is kicked up a few delicious notches by using Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Sweet, crunchy and cinnamony on the outside…warm and smooth on the inside. It’s particularly amazing with a little extra butter and warm syrup or my homemade Cinnamon Roll Syrup. Mmm…
But First, what is French toast?
French Toast is a super easy and versatile sweet (and sometimes savory) breakfast food. It is made from soaking bread in an egg-milk mixture then frying in a hot pan with butter.
This recipe is a variation made with Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. I’ll be showing you how to make French Toast using this variation.
How to Make Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast
Grab some older, dryer bread and let’s do this! I found this yummy loaf of ciabatta bread from a local bakery. SO good! Regular sandwich bread or challah bread would be good too. For full recipe details, see the printable recipe card down below.
Crush Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal
Place cereal into a large plastic food storage bag. Crush cereal with a rolling pin into fine crumbs. Pour onto a plate and set aside.
Make Egg Mixture
In a large shallow dish, crack eggs and whisk together with milk. Dip one slice of bread into egg mixture, flip it over and coat both sides. Then coat both sides the best you can in cereal crumbs.
Cook until Golden Brown + Serve
In a large frying pan or skillet, cook over medium heat in 1 teaspoon butter until browned on either side. Remove from pan and serve with more butter and warm maple syrup.
What to Serve with French Toast
Since this is a sweet breakfast, here are a few savory breakfast options that would be delicious to serve with this Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast:
- Pan Fried Potatoes
- Oven Bacon (the easiest way to make bacon!)
- Homemade Breakfast Sausage
- Egg Muffins
- Bacon & Egg Cups
French Toast can last up to four days stored in the fridge in an airtight container. If you aren’t going to eat those leftovers within those four days I recommend freezing them!
Or it can be stored in the freezer for about three months for an easy make-ahead breakfast. Perfect for those busy mornings!
Simply reheat in the microwave 30 seconds or until hot.

Had that one time in Oregon at high cascade they deep fried it though and called it timber toast
hi I am in cape town, south Africa and I really haven’t seen the cinnamon toast cereal in our grocery stores. how can I replicate it? I know you mentioned something about corn flakes but just the sound of that cinnamon toast sounds delish! I could add cinnamon…. what else?
They all look wonderful and sound great can’t wait to try love your blog and thank you
Love this for breakfast and or dinner with bacon and eggs as well!
Oh wow yum! Going to have to try this very soon. Pretty sure my boys would love me forever if I made this for them :0)

this sounds like the best idea ever! those close up photos are making me so hungry!
Love this! So yummy!
Oh wow. This looks amazing!
One of my biggest complaints about french toast is that it’s too soggy, but I think I would LOVE this version. You get the spice and the crunch all in one!
Part of the trick to not soggy French toast is thicker bread slices (Texas toast?) lightly toasted or dried in the oven first.
Love breakfast for dinner! My toddler would love this!
This looks amazing, and this may sound random but that is the most awesome picture of a cracked egg I’ve ever seen 🙂
I’m at the grocery store so often I feel like it is my 2nd home.
Wow, these look amazing! I saw a Throw Down episode with Bobby Flay where he went up against a guy who made stuffed french toast. He crusted his with corn flakes, but I think Cinnamon Toast Crunch is a much better idea. I think I’m going to put some kind of filling between two layers of toast and then put them in the cereal. Thanks so very much for the terrific recipe!
Oh yum!! Now I want stuffed french toast!!
oh my gawwwwd. french toast is my favorite sweet breakfast option..this looks incredible! so genius to crust it with one of the best cereals ever!
My kids LOVE French Toast. They would go nuts for this. Such a great idea!
This is my kind of french toast! So good!
Amazing! Totally over the top and I love it.
Also, my baby has a similar habit 😉 Though she decides to do that (and explode everywhere) just as I’m about to walk out the door to drop her at daycare in the morning. Perfect timing these babies have, no?!
Can we have a sleepover where you make these in the morning!?
you can’t go wrong with this for breakfast – yum!
My brother would go crazy for this! Genius idea, Lauren! Hoping you a get a nap or something in today! 🙂
My sons favorite cereal! He is 21. What a great idea. I too look for every excuse not to go shopping, but once I get there….I get into it. Funny though…my kids used to wait until we got to the store to poop too…..really?!!!!!
Oh honey I STILL enjoy grocery shopping alone and my youngest is nearly 11 years old. I remember how frustrating it was to go with littles!
This however may have been worthwhile – yummy!
My kind of breakfast!
