What ingredients will I need to make these pumpkin cream cheese stuffed french toast bites?!
You’ll need several simple ingredients to make this recipe. They are:
- bread of choice (I used gluten free)
- cream cheese of choice (I used dairy free)
- milk of choice (I used non-dairy milk)
- pure pumpkin puree
- pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger)
- sweetener of choice (see below!)
- eggs (regular or flax eggs)
- pure vanilla extract
What kind of cream cheese should I use?
I used Kite Hill plain almond milk cream cheese, but you can use regular plain cream cheese if you prefer. If you want to use pumpkin spice cream cheese instead, feel free! I made my own pumpkin spice cream cheese by mixing plain cream cheese with pumpkin puree, sweetener, and spices.
Will a flax egg work in this recipe?
I used a regular egg in this recipe, but a flax egg should work! To make a flax egg, simply mix together 1 TBS ground flaxseed with 3 TBS water and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, until it thickens. Once it thickens, simply add it to the french toast mixture as you would a regular egg! Here’s a tutorial on how I make a flax egg.
What kind of sweetener should I use in this recipe?
You can use whatever kind of sweetener you prefer in this recipe. I personally used honey, but maple syrup, date syrup, coconut sugar and monk fruit should all work as well!
Do I have to make french toast bites?
No! If you don’t want make french toast bites you can either make french toast sticks or regular french toast!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast Bites
For the Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese
- 2 oz plain cream cheese (I used dairy free)
- 2 tbsp pure pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp sweetener (I used honey)
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/4 tsp cinnamon plus 1/8 tsp nutmeg, ginger, and allspice)
For the French Toast
- 6 slices bread of choice (I used gluten free)
- 1/3 cup milk of choice (I used dairy free)
- 1 egg (or flax egg)
- 2 tbsp pure pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp sweetener (honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, etc.)
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- First, prepare the pumpkin spice cream cheese: add the cream cheese, pumpkin, spices, and sweetener to a dish and mix until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
- Next, add 6 slices of bread to a cutting board and trim the crust off of each slice (or you can leave it on if you prefer). Generously spread the pumpkin cream cheese over 3 slices of bread then place a slice of bread over each of the 3 slices with cream cheese to create 3 pumpkin cream cheese sandwiches. Slice each cream cheese sandwich into 9 squares.
- Now prepare the french toast mixture: add the milk, pumpkin, egg, sweetener, vanilla, spices, and salt to a dish and whisk until smooth.
- Preheat a griddle or skillet to medium heat and coat with some oil. Using a fork, dip each bite into the french toast mixture and then place on the heated griddle/skillet. Cook the french toast bites for several minutes on each side.
- Once cooked through, add the french toast bites to a plate and drizzle with some pure maple syrup. Dig in and enjoy!
