French Toast Sticks with Cinnamon Streusel topping

French Toast Sticks – a Childhood Favorite

Our Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes are one of our all-time favorite breakfast treats. They are soooo good! I am normally a French toast kind of gal though. If we go out to eat for breakfast, I almost always order French toast. We don’t make French toast a lot at home though. I don’t know why…probably because Caleb always asks for pancakes and waffles.

When I was in grade school, I remember our school cafeteria used to serve French toast sticks for lunch on occasion. I brought a brown bag lunch from home, but I was always jealous of my friends who had hot lunch on French toast sticks day. Not only were they eating my favorite breakfast food, but in stick form. How cool!

Never too old for French Toast Sticks

I am all grown up now, but I am not too grown up for French toast sticks. So I decided to switch things up last weekend and we made Cinnamon Streusel Baked French Toast Sticks. I combined our favorite pancakes with my favorite French toast. The result was epic! And I am sure my French toast sticks are WAY better than my school’s cafeteria….especially with the cinnamon streusel topping.

How to Make French Toast Sticks

French toast sticks sound something exclusive to a restaurant, but they are easy!

  1. To make the French toast sticks, I cut Texas toast into three slices. You can use Brioche bread or French bread or another thick bread.
  2. I dipped the bread sticks into an egg/milk mixture that had a hint of vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. I put the French toast sticks on a baking sheet and baked them for 9 minutes.
  4. I took them out of the oven, flipped them over, and added the glorious cinnamon streusel topping.
  5. I put them back in the oven and baked them until they were golden brown and the cinnamon streusel topping was set. It sticks right to the top of the French toast sticks.

You can dunk the Cinnamon Streusel Baked French Toast Sticks in maple syrup if you are a kid at heart or you can drizzle them with maple syrup. Either way, they are delicious! And they are so sweet you really don’t need maple syrup, but why not?

For the French Toast Sticks:

For the Cinnamon Streusel:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. Cut bread slices into thirds then set aside.
  • Cut the bread slices into 3 sticks. In a large shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dunk bread sticks into batter, let excess drip off, then place onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes.
  • While the French Toast Sticks are baking, make the cinnamon streusel. In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Mix together with your hands or a fork, until you have a crumbly mixture.
  • Remove French Toast Sticks after the 9 minutes. Flip the sticks over and sprinkle the cinnamon streusel over the sticks. Place the pan back in the oven and bake for another 9-10 minutes, or until sticks are golden and streusel is set. Remove from the oven and serve warm, with syrup, if desired.

  1. Yum! I haven’t had french toast in forever! I love that you used Texas Toast! This is just a perfect recipe and oh the streusel topping is calling me! I want this for breakfast!

  2. If you say streusel I say “get in my belly!” I love these cute little sticks and managed to make something so kid-friendly look so grown up and elegant! Gorgeous photos! Pinned!

  3. LOVE this – how cute and fun to eat. I love making things into bite-size portions. Plus, the addition of cinnamon streusel here puts this on a whole other level. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I need some breakfast recipes for the slew of company we’re about to have roll through our house! This looks awesome, pinning this now.

  5. Wow, these look incredible! My husband would probably collapse if I made him something like this for breakfast!

  6. Goodness gracious this looks sinfully delicious. I don’t often go for sweet breakfasts but when I do, french toast would be my pick.

  7. My hubby’s in charge of weekend breakfasts, so I have to ever-so-slyly send this post his way as a MAJOR HINT. These are incredible, Maria!

  8. I think I need to make this for our youngest daughter. French toast sticks day at school is her favorite!

  9. I love french toast sticks and love that you added streusel to them! What a great idea – everything is better with streusel :). Beautiful photos!

  10. These look absolutely amazing. Question though, would you be able to freeze these with out the streusel on top falling off and how would you recommend re heating them?

  11. Maria-
    I made these with potato bread this morning. They came out soooo good! I could not find Texas toast anywhere and did not want to use French bread. Thanks for this recipe. I know I will be making it often.

  12. As if I didn’t love your streusel pancakes enough, you had to go put that topping on french toast sticks! #drooling

  13. We are having another snow storm and since my hubby and daughter will be home in the morning I can’t think of a better snow day breakfast to make for my family. Thanks for the recipe.

  14. These look great! This is probably a really stupid question but where do you buy Texas Toast? Is it in the bakery section of the grocery store? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it anywhere besides in the frozen section as garlic toast. Thanks!

  15. 5 stars
    I have been meaning to make these for a while and am so glad I finally did. I have lived in Texas for most of my life, but this is the first time that I have eaten Texas toast. It worked beautifully for the french toast sticks. The portioning for the streusel was just right as well. Thanks for the recipe!

  16. Oh Maria, I can’t wait to make these the recipe sounds & seems so simple. I have a french bread that I bought so I can use that. And I always have the rest of the ingredients. I will let you know how they turn out. Thanks Again. Robin
