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.
