Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls

Making a package of cinnamon rolls in your air fryer is simple! All you need is your favorite roll of pre made cinnamon roll dough and your sweet tooth.

Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls

I do realize that this is my third cinnamon roll recipe for this blog. A blog that is just a mere 6 months old. In my defense, this was not my planned recipe for today. The plan was to share a new chicken recipe made in the crock pot.

However, this new chicken recipe was about as flavorful as a dishcloth. It was also really ugly. I’m OK with sharing an ugly dish, but, one that doesn’t taste good? Nope. It’s not something I like to do.

You see, we are a real simple, kinda basic eating family. If something isn’t flavorful for us? It’s probably not going to be good for your average eater.

So, I opted to show you guys another way to make cinnamon rolls. These are not homemade, they come from a package. Much like our most recent cinnamon roll recipe here at Countertop Cooking.

What Do I Need for this Recipe?

  • Air Fryer
  • Refrigerated cinnamon roll dough
  • Non stick cooking spray

Cinnamon Roll Dough: I usually stick with the regular Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls or a brand equivalent. I have never tried the “flaky” variety of dough for these, so, I can’t say how they would work out, but, they should work fine. However, they are thicker than the regular version. If you use them, just be sure to cook them a bit longer.

Make Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer:

  • First, spray the basket of your air fryer with non stick cooking spray. Unroll the rolls from the package and separate them.
  • Place 3-4 rolls into the basket. How many depends on the size of your air fryer basket. I was able to fit 4 in mine with a bit of space in between them. Give them some space to expand and don’t overcrowd the basket.
  • Cook for 4 minutes. Then, remove the basket and flip the cinnamon roll. Cook an additional 4 minutes.

A note about cooking time: Cooking time may vary, depending on your air fryer. Play it safe and cook just one at first, to test time. Also, if you are using smaller/larger cinnamon rolls, you will have to adjust your time.
