Things To Grab
- Food processor
- 2 small shallow bowls
- Air fryer
- Small saucepan
- 5 serving dishes
Preheat air fryer to 375 degrees according to manufacturer's directions. Meanwhile, whisk egg in another small shallow bowl. Dip frozen French toast sticks one at a time in egg, turning to coat all sides. Coat with crushed cereal mixture, turning to coat all sides.
Lightly spray air-fryer basket with nonstick spray. Working in batches, place coated French toast sticks in a single layer in basket. Close air fryer and air-fry 4 to 5 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through.
Meanwhile, for blueberry sauce, place 1 cup blueberries in a small saucepan; mash with a potato masher. Add remaining 3 tablespoons brown sugar and water. Simmer uncovered over medium-low heat for 5 to 6 minutes or sauce begins to thicken, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining 1 cup blueberries; simmer 2 minutes more or until whole berries begin to burst; cool slightly before serving.
To serve, scoop ice cream into 5 serving bowls. Top with blueberry mixture. Add 2 French toast sticks to each sundae. Garnish with additional crushed cinnamon square cereal, if desired.
