Milk and Cereal Fruity Pebbles French Toast Sticks

We are all kids at heart, I know that definitely I am. I love that feeling of nostalgia and joy when I see, taste or experience things from the past that remind me of times when I was little. Indulging in sugary cereals and milk is definitely one of those things that brings me back. Growing up I adored all types of cereals. Cereals with funky colors, shapes, marshmallows, fruity ones, chocolate-y ones and even frosted ones. It was considered the ultimate brunch as a 10 year old, especially when my mom would let me have unlimited bowls of it.

Fast forward to today, I still love indulging in a good old fashioned bowl of milk and cereal, but maybe only every once in a while and not every day or even every weekend. These Fruity Pebbles French Toast Sticks with a Milk and Cereal Glaze are an ode to my childhood and those carefree times way back when. I amped them up by ditching the bowl, adding in some carbs and replacing regular milk with oat milk to create the ultimate brunch goals with an adult twist on it.

There is the perfect amount of sweetness and crispiness in every bite. A soft and fluffy bread loaf gets cut into stick pieces that makes for fun dipping and dunking. Then, they get drenched in a cinnamon oat milk mixture and coated with bright fruity pebble pieces. Finally, they get cooked in a buttery base for the perfect finishing touch.

These are great for weekends with the kids or your significant other, meal prepping and they are even freezer friendly! I love serving them with my milk and cereal glaze, but serving them with regular maple syrup is just as good too!
