Pumpkin French Toast with Cinnamon Syrup

With Thanksgiving just a week away, it’s time to really get thinking about the food! If your family makes a decadent breakfast on Thanksgiving, I think I’ve got a pretty great recipe right here. Pumpkin French Toast with Cinnamon Syrup is simply divine. The pumpkin flavor combines with cinnamon and nutmeg for what could be my very favorite french toast recipe ever. I made this for my nephews and they gobbled it right up. They’re ages 14 and 12, but my 6 and 4 year old loved it too! It’s a crowd pleaser for sure.

Thanksgiving is my husband’s favorite holiday and definitely one of my top favorites. I love getting together with family and eating so much delicious food, all the way feeling extra grateful for all the things that I have. We live out of state from our families, so Thanksgiving is an extra special holiday for us.

This syrup is the same one I serve with Pumpkin Waffles, also a great Thanksgiving breakfast idea. I’ve also served it on ice cream. It is so yummy!

    Oh my gosh. I started at one of your recent posts and kept clicking the suggestions at the bottom because every one of the pictures looks so delicious. I can’t stop (nor do I want to) haha!

    This French toast just looks so decadent. Do you know how I could make a vegan version of this recipe? I have so much frozen pumpkin in the freezer and I want to use it for something, but I can’t do eggs or milk.

      Ooh I just recently saw a vegan french toast recipe! Instead of eggs and milk they used chia seeds and almond milk. You could ground up those chia seeds or leave them as is. I’ve also seen flax meal used instead of eggs.
