Calling all pumpkin lovers! You must try this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast. 

This Pumpkin French Toast is thick, fluffy, and bursting with pumpkin flavor. Stuffed with a creamy cream cheese, drizzled with maple syrup, and topped with crunchy pecans. This tasty Pumpkin French Toast will be your new go-to breakfast or brunch this fall. 

This Pumpkin French toast is super quick and easy to whip up. To make this stuffed french toast you want to make sure to use thick slices of bread. For my french toast, I sliced my bread into 3 inch slices. The reason why you want to slice them thick is so that you can make pockets for the vegan cream cheese to be squeezed inside of it.

If you are not able to find a loaf of bread that hasn’t already been sliced, no worries. Instead of stuffing your french toast you can add a thick layer of vegan cream cheese on top of your french toast and then add another slice on top of that as if it is stuffed in between the toasts. 

Stuffing your french toast with cream cheese is actually very easy. With your thick slices of bread you are going to use a small knife to make a slit in the middle of your bread making a pocket. Then using room temperature cream cheese you are going to fill or “stuff” the pocket of bread with cream cheese. 

To stuff your french toast fill a piping bag with cream cheese. If you don’t have a piping bag fill a zip lock bag halfway with cream cheese and push the cream cheese to one corner. Cut a small corner off the zip lock bag and you have a homemade piping bag! 

Beware, adding too much cream cheese to the pocket of your bread will make the cream cheese spill out. Once you see the cream cheese on the outside the bread stop.

For the Pumpkin French Toast mixture you are going to combine the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla, ground flax seed, and dairy- free milk in a large bowl and whisk. If you do not have pumpkin pie spice you can substitute it for nutmeg. 

When picking which bowl to use for your Pumpkin French Toast mixture you want to make sure to use a big shallow bowl making it easy for you to dunk each slice of bread in the bowl.

I topped my Pumpkin Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with crunchy pecans, cinnamon, powdered sugar, vegan butter, and maple syrup.
