Can you put French toast sticks in the air fryer? Absolutely! Deep-fried French toast sticks are delicious! I grew up eating them, the store-bought kind that comes in a box. With the air fryer, you can make them pretty quickly and it’s very easy!

A lot of people have gotten rid of kitchen appliances because you can even make toast in the air fryer! Use any of your leftover Texas toast to make regular toast.

How to Make Air Fryer French Toast

  1. Grab a loaf of Texas Toast bread. Cut each slice into 3 individual sticks.
  2. Add an egg, melted butter, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla to a bowl large enough to dredge the French toast.
  3. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil.
  4. Dredge each stick in the batter and place them in the air fryer basket. Do not overcrowd.
  5. Spray with cooking oil spray and air fry.

Air Fryer Temperature

I recommend 370 degrees.

Cook Time

A cook time of 10-12 minutes seems to be the sweet spot. You will want to flip them halfway through. Total cook time will vary based on the air fryer brand you use and how crispy you want the French toast. Crispy results will take longer.

How to Make Frozen French Toast Sticks in the Air Fryer

You can freeze these homemade sticks after air frying. I recommend you freeze them in a tightly sealed container or bag.

To cook them from frozen, cook for 15 minutes (flip at the halfway mark) on 370 degrees.

How to Keep the Air Fryer From Sticking

Be sure to spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil. I like to use this Oil Spray Bottle from Amazon and I typically use olive or avocado oil. This will keep the batter from sticking to the basket. You can also use Air Fryer Parchment Paper.

Woke up this morning to the Stay Snatched email and this recipe and knew exactly what I was having for breakfast. Love how simple and quick this recipe was. I had all ingredients on hand and everything came together in a matter of minutes. The flavor is spot on and my house now smells like a delicious bakery. I wish I could bottle that smell! This is definitely a breakfast that looks and smells decadent but is super simple and fast.

My air fryer (Vortex) does not have this pot. ?? My only options are a wire rack, or a solid sheet. Am I using the baking sheet that has no air movement?

This recipe does not require a pot. Use what you would normally use to air fry.
