Apple French toast muffins are one of my favorite breakfasts to make on the weekend. Not only are they delicious but they also make great breakfasts for the week. It’s like have a big Sunday breakfast but meal prepping at the same time.

These are a spin on my original French toast muffins. They have been made by thousands of people and I kept getting the comment can we add apples? I had to try it out for myself! Dare I say these are better than the original? I always love when you guys help me tweak my recipes.

That being said you can make this recipe your own by switching out the apples for blueberries, chocolate chips, cranberries, or nuts. The options are almost endless. This recipe is a great base recipe. You can add in chocolate chips, apples, blueberries, cranberries, orange zest or nuts. The options are truly endless. This recipe is a big hit for kids.

How To Store Leftovers.

Store leftover french toast muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. They can be reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Can You Freeze French Toast Muffins

Yes. These muffins freeze well. I like to wrap them individually and store in an air tight container or freezer bag. To reheat from frozen microwave for 45-60 seconds.
