Pumpkin maple crockpot French Toast is the perfect breakfast for busy school mornings. It's also a lifesaver when you have company visiting and want to spend time with them - not in the kitchen!
Doesn't fall put you in the mood for pumpkin everything? We love the flavors of autumn, including all those warm spices.
One of my favorites is this 5 minute Pumpkin Parfait. It's creamy and decadent, made with yogurt and with ginger snap cookies. It's the perfect dessert and super easy to make! Check out all these delicious pumpkin desserts for more ideas.
Why We Love This Recipe
This Pumpkin French Toast had me at Crockpot! Seriously, when we have company for a few days, I love making this early in the morning and it's ready when our friends are hungry!
It's also different and a little bit decadent. I love spoiling our friends.
What Goes in This French Toast
French Bread is key for making French Toast. Pick up a fresh loaf at your local grocery store or have one in the freezer when you need it.
Canned Pumpkin gives this breakfast that delicious pumpkin flavor and extra smooth texture.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer is readily available this time of year. This gives the French Toast an extra creamy texture as well as a little extra spice.
See the recipe card below for the complete list of ingredients and full instructions.

Despite the mix up with the ingredients and instructions, I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say you put bread in a slow cooker then mix everything else together and pour on top of the bread. Slow cooker recipes are pretty uncomplicated like that! PS. I’m pretty sure the picture of the food isn’t the right one for recipe either.
Aside from all the errors listed above, also no mention of butter in the ingredients yet it says to add the cubed butter in #6 of the instructions. Someone mixed up 2 different recipes
Anyone know the correct ingredients? The ingredients listed half and half , nutmeg , cloves and maple syrup is listed twice but in 2 different measures. Instructions say wisk ingredients not on the ingredients list milk, pumpkin creamer, salt and cinnamon . Wisk in sugar, brown and confectioners both, or is the confectioners for the top after baking?
If anyone has the corrected recipe please post as I would love to try this Thanks, Pat
in the instructions to wisk you say to add cinnamon. There is no cinnamon in the ingredients list but there is ground nutmeg . Which is correct cinnamon or nutmeg? Please advise as I really want to make this ASAP

There are different ingredients in the instructions! Something is wrong with this recipe!
I was getting ready to post that items were missing from the list of ingredients that were put in the crockpot. Guess I won't make this. Too much sugar.
Also missing from the ingredients is: milk,salt, cinnamon, and the pumpkin creamer. In the instructions no mention is given on cloves. It does however look scrumptious. How many servings does it make?
It's in the egg mixture, however pumpkin creamer isn't mentioned, just half and half. Recipe is not right. Maybe she will make a correction.
I see pumpkin creamer in the instructions, however creamer is not listed in the ingredients. Did I miss something?
