Before I get to these Gluten Free Overnight Pumpkin French Toast Muffins, let’s talk about some big news, shall we? I have recently joined Food Fanatic as their gluten-free fanatic and this recipe was my very first post. I’m so excited about this opportunity! Food Fanatic has such an awesome team of bloggers and I feel like the kid sitting at the adult table.

Since I’m the new girl there, I wanted to start out with something epic because everyone loves a little something epic in their lives. And these gluten free overnight pumpkin french toast muffins are just that. They. Are. Epic. They’re so delicious, hearty and satisfying. They’re eggy and dense and are almost like a breakfast bread pudding. They’ve got a wonderful pumpkin flavor and they’re just oozing with sweet, pure maple syrup.

They’re also easy. How can something that sounds so difficult be easy? Well, everything is mixed up ahead the night before. Basically, you cut up your bread and toss it in a bowl with the liquid and let it hang out in the fridge. The next morning, mix in some maple syrup, scoop into your muffin tin, bake and serve. It’s so much faster and easier than standing at the stove flipping slice after slice of traditional french toast. Enjoy!

P.S.- Nicole from Allergylicious made another delicious breakfast recipe that has…you guessed it.. PUMPKIN flavor!  She made Baked Pumpkin Donuts that are Vegan, Gluten Free & Nut Free!  If you want to stay with the french toast theme, try this Caramel Apple French Toast Casserole made by Cindy at Vegetarian Mamma.  So many great recipes, so little time!

    I am curious. Don’t know a lot about gluten or gluten free products. But: this recipe calls for a loaf of stale bread, gluten free or not. If it is not, how can the end result be gluten free?

    • Sharon says:

      It will be gluten free if you use gluten free bread. The option was there to use regular bread for those who do not follow a gluten free diet.

    Congrats on your new opportunity, too!
