French Toast Bites

I don’t like maple syrup. There, I said it! Even as a kid, I always used fruit syrup or jelly with things like french toast because I didn’t like the maple syrup. Not the taste, smell, anything. So when I decided to make these French Toast Bites, I figured it was a good breakfast for my hubby and kids, and I’d find something else for me. Or would I?! Flash told me to at least try it, so I did and it was AMAZING! I had more than anyone, I admit. It was just so sweet with a pleasant crunchy coating. An absolutely delightful way to start the day! Wonder Woman has already asked me to make them again, and I’m more than willing!
French Toast Bites

Adapted from


  • 1 can (8 count) Flaky Biscuits (Pillsbury or generic)
  • 1 1/2 cups Maple Syrup
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Ground Cinnamon


  1. In a medium sauce pan, bring the maple syrup and brown sugar to a simmer.
  2. Open the can of biscuits, cutting each into fourths. Roll each piece into a ball.
  3. Place the biscuit balls into the syrup mixture. They will puff up, so be sure to leave room!
  4. Cover and let them simmer until they’ve doubled in size, turning occasionally to cover all sides with the syrup.
  5. Remove the balls from the heat and allow to cool.
  6. Mix the nutmeg, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Carefully roll each ball in the sugar mixture so it’s nicely coated and crunchy.
  7. Place the bites into a bowl, and drizzle with the remaining syrup mixture. Enjoy!
