These flavorful French Toast Muffin Bites are sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
These little French Toast Muffin Bites are packed with big flavor in every bite – buttery, cinnamon little bites of soft french toast goodness. Eat them with or without syrup. Trust me, it won’t matter! More about that in a moment!
Welcome to #BrunchWeek 2018 hosted by Love and Confections and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! This year is even bigger and better than ever! Thirty eight bloggers from around the country are showcasing their best brunch dishes.
We have so many delicious recipes for you to enjoy throughout the week (over 150!!) including cocktails, appetizers, pastries, tarts, main courses, and plenty of desserts!
Our BrunchWeek Sponsors are helping us give away some great prizes. Thank you so much, Sponsors, for your generosity. We have an incredible giveaway below and we’d love if you would take a moment to read about it and what you can win!
Yep, recipes galore! You won’t believe all the delicious, mouth watering posts you will see all over all of your social media in the coming days. A week long brunch celebration. What could be better?
And those sponsors and their products? Truly FANTASTIC products to make truly FANTASTIC recipes!
My first recipe for Brunch Week is this recipe for French Toast Muffin Bites that we love to make for brunches. These little Muffin Bites seemed like a great choice to try with some of our sponsors products.
I used LorAnn Butter Vanilla Bakery Emulsion (don’t worry, plain Vanilla extract will work too – but that bakery emulsion took this recipe to literally the next level! WOW!), Dixie Crystals Sugar which is my favorite to buy and use, and Eggland’s Best eggs, which… yep, are the best IMHO.
Every bite of these delicious little French Toast Muffins are buttery, cinnamon, sugary bites of goodness. They are fantastic without syrup, but if the kids want some, don’t hesitate. It only makes them better.
I love eating them with a cup of coffee in the morning and they are the perfect size for a light breakfast to pair with my coffee.
I make big batches of these when I am serving them for brunch or a potluck. They are perfect because they are cheap, easy and delicious!
