How to make Pumpkin French Toast
The great thing about this delicious Pumpkin French toast is that the only real difference is that you add pumpkin puree to your egg mixture. It not only makes the custard mixture super creamy, but it also adds nutrition to your french toast!
Why should you add pumpkin to your french toast?
- Pumpkin is low in calories, yet super high in nutrients
- High in antioxidants like alpha and beta carotene (can help support immune function, vision health, and slow aging)
- Good source of magnesium
- High in fiber
This version of French toast got an A+ From my kids!

Thank you!! I still have canned pumpkin that we canned from last year. Making pumpkin cinnamon rolls today for a Scout meeting…. this recipe will be used for breakfast as soon as those are gone. (Which shouldn’t take too long!)
This looks yummy, I love anything pumpkin!! I will be adding this to my menu plan, thanks so much for sharing!!
Hope-That is awesome that you canned pumpkin last year! I may have to try that.
Thanks for commenting Jamie. Not only was it yummy, it wasn’t any harder than regular French Toast!
Mmm… We are so trying these this week!
That’s so funny, because I was already planning on making your orange french toast (and putting it on sticks with sausage and fruit) for supper tonight!! I’m SO going to change to pumpkin now though!! Do you think it’ll still work in the oven? What about using parchment paper in the oven instead of the melted butter?

Your recipes look amazing! I don’t have any cottage cheese on hand to make your pumpkin pancakes so I am going to try your pumpkin oatmeal recipe for breakfast. Is there anywhere I can get the Nutritional Info. for your recipes?
