Discover the ultimate breakfast indulgence with these irresistible air fryer cinnamon rolls. Picture a crispy, golden exterior paired with a gooey, warm center. With the perfect balance of sweetness and fluffiness in every bite, these cinnamon rolls are sure to become your new favorite treat.
How to Cook Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer
Step One: Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees F to ensure even cooking.
Step Two: Line your air fryer with parchment paper to prevent any sticking. Just make sure not to do this while preheating to avoid any fire hazards.
Step Three: Carefully position the cinnamon rolls in a single layer, leaving enough space between each roll for proper hot air circulation. This ensures that they cook evenly, eliminating any undercooked or doughy spots.
Step Four: Set the timer and cook the cinnamon rolls for just 4 minutes. The hot air circulation in the air fryer makes this cooking process much quicker than a conventional oven.
Step Five: Once the cooking time is up, use tongs or a thin spatula to gently remove the freshly baked cinnamon rolls from the air fryer. While they’re still warm, drizzle the luscious cream cheese icing on top for the perfect finishing touch.
Tips for the Best Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls
- Avoid using metal utensils in the air fryer to protect the non-stick coating.
- For a gooey center, slightly undercook the cinnamon rolls as they will continue to cook after being removed from the air fryer.
- Air fry refrigerated cinnamon rolls straight from the can while the dough is still chilled. This guarantees even and perfect cooking.

How Long to Cook Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer
When using small Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, a quick 4-minute cook time at 350 degrees F is all you need. However, for jumbo-sized cinnamon rolls like Pillsbury Grands, which only have 5 rolls per can, you’ll need to cook them for 7-8 minutes.
How to Reheat Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer
To enjoy leftover cinnamon rolls, simply place them in a preheated air fryer at 300 degrees F for just 1 minute. Be careful not to overcook, as this can dry them out. Store any remaining cinnamon rolls in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days or refrigerate them for longer freshness. If they happen to dry out in the fridge, add a few drops of water to each roll before air frying.
Should You Flip the Cinnamon Rolls During Cooking?
Thanks to the air fryer’s magic, there’s no need to flip your cinnamon rolls. The even heat distribution ensures that every part of the roll cooks perfectly. Plus, flipping them might cause you to lose some of that delicious cinnamon spread, and we wouldn’t want that!
