air fryer French toast recipe is a game-changer for an easy breakfast. Our easy recipe combines thick brioche bread with the classic egg mixture seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg for a perfectly flavored version of traditional french toast.


  •  cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 slices thick bread such as Brioche or Texas toast
  • Maple syrup butter, fresh fruit, powdered sugar


  • Spray the air fryer basket with a non-stick cooking spray or line it with an air fryer parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, add the the milk egg, vanilla extract and spices and whisk together completely.
    ⅔ cup milk,3 large eggs,2 teaspoons vanilla extract,1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon,½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Preheat the air fryer to 360° F
  • Dip one piece of bread into the egg mixture.
    6 slices thick bread
  • Lift it out and let the excess egg drip off, and place the coated bread slice into the air fryer basket.
  • Add a 2nd or 3rd piece if your basket is big enough.
  • Cook for 6 minutes.
  • The flip it over and then cook for and additional 4-6 more minutes until golden brown, checking after 2 minutes as air fryer brands differ in cooking times.
  • Repeat with the remaining pieces of bread.
  • Serve topped with your favorite toppings like butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit and powdered sugar.
    Maple syrup


Add a tablespoon of sugar to the batter if you prefer it sweet

Add more of the spices to the egg batter as you cook additional slices if needed.

Make sure to use air fryer liners or to grease the air frying basket before using otherwise the bread will stick to the basket.

I like using a thick bread such Brioche, Texas Toast, or Sourdough. Use any bread you have on hand. Thinner bread may cook faster so keep an eye on it.

Quickly soak the bread but don’t leave it in the batter too long otherwise it may become soggy.

Refrigerator: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator without toppings for up to 4 days.

Freeze: Make several pieces and freeze them in a freezer bag for a quick breakfast.

Reheating: Reheat in the air fryer for a minute or two or for 30 seconds in the microwave. If frozen, heat for a little longer.
