Lots of factors influence outcome of how the cinnamon rolls. They all vary in size and thickness, so you’ll have to adjust timing. All air fryers are different and some cook much hotter than others. Once you cook your first batch, you’ll know more of what works for your model of air fryer and size of food. These recipes were tested on basket style air fryers. Read more recipe notes below the recipe.
Lightly spray the air fryer basket with oil (if possible, avoid using cooking sprays with propellants-they will often start to break down the coating in the air fryer baskets). Open the can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and lay out in the air fryer basket.
Air Fry at 330°F for 10 minutes. Wiggle & loosen the cinnamon rolls from the base of the basket. Continue to Air Fry at 330°F for another 1-3 minutes if needed.
If your cinnamon rolls came with icing, drizzle with the included icing while cinnamon rolls are still hot (we microwaved for 8-10 seconds to make the icing a little looser and easier to drizzle over the cinnamon rolls). Or you can top with optional jam or butter.
Air Frying Tips and Notes:
It isn't necessary to spray the cinnamon rolls with oil. Just spray the basket to help prevent them from sticking.
The cinnamon rolls cook better with a bit of space and room to rise.
If cooking in multiple batches, the first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated. Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer.
Recipes were tested in 3.4 to 6 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
Remember to set a timer to loosen and check the cinnamon rolls as directed in recipe.
