Making Cinnamon Rolls has never been quicker than with the air fryer! Breakfast is served in less than 10 minutes!
Making pre-made cinnamon rolls the traditional way takes a good bit of time because you have to pre-heat the oven and then let them cook 15+ minutes. With the air fryer, there is no need to pre-heat, and you just add them to the basket and cook for a few minutes! This is a great breakfast solution for busy mornings when there isn't a lot of time. Air fryer cinnamon rolls will be your families new go-to in a hurry breakfast!
Serve these alongside delicious Honey Lime Fruit salad for the perfect meal!
All you need to make Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls is a can of pre-made cinnamon rolls and an Air fryer. Find them the refrigerated section of the grocery store, usually close to the butter, eggs, and other refrigerated rolls. My 8qt air fryer fits a full can perfectly, but if you have a smaller air fryer you may need to do them in batches.
How to make Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer:
**scroll down for full ingredients list and printable directions**
- Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with oil spray from a Misto or something similar.
- Using a can of pre-made cinnamon rolls, open the can and add the rolls to the basket. Do not crowd them, they need room to expand.
- Set the air fryer to 350 degrees F, and 6 minutes. This cook time might change depending on your Air fryer, all models cook slightly different.
- Remove them from the air fryer immediately and add the frosting/glaze to the top of the cinnamon rolls.
PRO TIP: If all the cinnamon rolls will not be eaten at once, only add the glaze to the rolls being consumed. Set the unglazed rolls aside, then when time to eat pop them back in the air fryer for 1-2 minutes to heat up, then add the glaze.
