Sheet-Pan Granola Crusted French Toast Sticks

IMG_4844.jpg

French toasts are undeniably my favorite weekend breakfast pick. From breakfast outings to having breakfast in bed, I've experimented with a fair share of scrumptious French toast styles.  But the one I am sharing here today, has become regular weekend treat for my husband and I! 

 

My Granola Crusted French Toast Sticks recipe is SUPER crispy, crunchy, and wholesome. The best part is that they are made with common pantry staples in my kitchen similar to some of my other recipes. What I love specifically about sheet pan meals is that are incredibly hassle-free, mess-free, and is the simplest way to batch cook. If you have a large family to cook for or if you just want an easy weekly breakfast meal-prep recipe, this just might be the kind of breakfast you are looking for. Don't sleep on this recipe!
