Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer

Cooked Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls

If you are looking for a quick treat to prepare for breakfast or to serve for guests with coffee, cinnamon rolls are always a popular choice. They are delicious, easy, and always a favorite among guests and family members. They make the perfect quick breakfast on holidays and weekends or for any occasion at all. The best news? Your air fryer can make this quick dish even quicker! So we are pleased to tell you how to make air fryer cinnamon rolls!

Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls: A Faster Alternative

Everyone has their favorite brand. Ours is Pillsbury. Yes, we pop the can open like every other busy American with better things to do than whip up a batch from scratch. We’re here to make your life easier. With an 11-13 minute cook time, plus the 15 minutes it takes to pre-heat the oven, you’ll spend almost 30 minutes baking cinnamon rolls in a conventional oven.

However, because there is not preheat time, the air fryer can get the job done in half the time.

Find the Right Balance

Depending on the capacity and brand of your air fryer, you may need to adjust the temperature and times accordingly. A general rule of thumb with air fryers, especially when it comes to “baking”, is the set a lower temperature and reduce the time.

For my French May air fryer, I find that it takes around 15 minutes at 340 degrees, flipping once. However, my Chefman is a little different. I bake the cinnamon rolls at 360 for 12 minutes, flipping halfway. So if it’s the first time you’ve tried cinnamon rolls in the air fryer, be sure to check them often and make needed adjustments.

    I have 3 air fryers a rather large one that I think it’s 6 when QVC 1st started selling them many years ago their Cooks Essentials brand… I used it once shoved in in the cupboard for years… in the summer I decided to buy a Mini 2.2 one fell in love with it but even though it’s just me it was still a little too small… While the 6 qt was often too got the 3.7 more square shaped COSORI in red and its Perfect. They all work well but the COSORI has some amazing extra features that I love. I thought about giving away or selling my cooks essentials as it’s still in great condition and it’s just a gorgeous Gray because they had their own colors for only QVC.. But I’m going to keep it and pull it out if I really need a little extra cooking space…. And it’s nice to have a couple of them and the many ones are really perfect for small jobs…. I can’t wait to make cinnamon rolls this weekend and I just ordered your cookbook off of Amazon thank you!! Crazy thing is I have an opti grilI I got 2 years ago and never touch it now…same thing with my instapot that I sent back… the air fryer is the best kitchen gadget you’ll ever get or need!!!!
