Begin by preheating your air fryer to 400°F (204°C).
When your air fryer is preheated, remove your French toast sticks from the freezer, and open the packaging. Arrange your French toast sticks in your air fryer basket, in a single layer with space in between.
Air fry for approximately 4 minutes.
Once the 4 minutes have passed, open the air fryer basket, and flip over the French toast sticks. Continue air frying for another 3 to 4 minutes until the French toast is done to your preference.

How Many French Toast Sticks Can I Fit in the Air Fryer?
How many French toast sticks you can fit in your air fryer depends on the size of your air fryer basket.

Smaller air fryers will be able to fit fewer French toast sticks, and larger ones will fit more.
