Sometimes I wonder who first thought of mixing together multiple breakfast items, although it is an impossible question to answer. And in the end, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that someone did, now everyone can, and this Froot Loops French toast recipe is a beautiful result of it all. Welcome to the future.

The best part is that Froot Loops French toast may be a “treat yo self” type of breakfast, but you can always serve it with fresh fruit on the side for some added nutrition. But that is, of course, optional. It’s easy to make, and delicious to eat. That is, if you have a sweet tooth. And what better way is there to bring yourself back to childhood than with cereal and French toast?
