Air fryer cinnamon toast comes out perfectly crispy every time! The toast gets a delicious cinnamon sugar flavor and is delicious for breakfast or dessert.
I great up eating cinnamon toast. I felt like cinnamon toast and scrambled eggs were my go-to breakfasts.
I also made cinnamon toast a lot in college, usually right before (or between) classes. But it always required turning on an oven and constantly checking on it to make sure it was that perfect amount of crispy browned, but not burned.
Now that air fryers are a thing, I've rediscovered my love for cinnamon toast AND found that it's so quick and easy to make in the air fryer.
No need to turn on an oven. No need for the possibility of accidentally knocking the cinnamon toast off my oven rack, making a huge mess.
Now I can just pop cinnamon toast in my air fryer and it cooks up quickly and easily.
- Bread - I prefer brioche or Texas Toast
Air fryer - This is the air fryer I have and love.
Air fryer parchment paper - Air fryer parchment paper is completely optional, but I love it for easy cleanup!
What to serve with the cinnamon toast:
While air fryer cinnamon toast is delicious as a breakfast or snack on its own, I love pairing it with other foods too!
Air fryer breakfast potatoes make a great pairing if you're looking to make breakfast in your air fryer too!
- Cardamom - Add a bit of cardamon to the cinnamon sugar mixture for a delicious combination!
- Pumpkin pie spice - Want fall flavors? Add a touch of pumpkin pie spice to the cinnamon sugar mixture.
- All air fryers cook differently. Watch closely to make sure your cinnamon toast is done how you like it.
- Depending on the type of bread you use, you may need slightly shorter or longer cooking time.
How to make:
Add the cinnamon and sugar to a small bowl and stir to combine.
Add butter to the slices of bread.
Spread the butter over the bread.
Sprinkles as much of the cinnamon sugar mixture as you like onto the slices.
Place slices of bread on your air fryer basket. Cook for 4-5 minutes at 330 degrees F.
Plate and enjoy!
