2. Gingerbread French Toast Sticks: Since National French Toast Day conveniently falls within the holiday season, it makes perfect sense to give the egg-dipped toasts a gingerbread-inspired kick. This particular recipe is vegan with traditional flavors, but it feels extra festive thanks to a rich and creamy gingerbread fondue on the side. (via Hot for Food)

3. Baked Oatmeal French Toast Sticks: If you like oatmeal, you’ll love these gluten-free baked oatmeal French toast sticks. The recipe is super flexible, but you can top it with a drizzle of your favorite peanut butter or a few blueberries for a bit of freshness. (via The Lean Green Bean)

5. Coffee Caramelized Croissant French Toast Sticks: What makes these unique is that they’re made out of croissant dough instead of just plain bread. Even better?
