The best breakfast pastry made easy with Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls using Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls!

One of my favorite ways to use the air fryer is just by cooking some of the prepared foods we purchase such as Cinnamon Rolls. 

Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls can be made in less than 8 minutes in the Air Fryer!

What is the benefit of making these?

Of course, eating them is the benefit, but we’ve found that making them in the air fryer takes much less time.  These are ready in just 8 minutes without doing any pre-heating.

It’s also a great option to teach the older kids to cook too, my daughter is pretty handy with cooking these as well.  We still get them out when they are done, but she loves to put them in and get them ready to cook.

If you want to add a twist, you can top them with bacon too, sounds tasty, right?  

How do you make Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls?

These can be made in your Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi using the air crisp function.  With either appliance, all you need is the air fryer basket, no extras are needed.

We spray the basket with just a bit of coconut oil spray, then place the cinnamon rolls right in the basket.  The basket is the perfect size to fit the entire batch of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls.  

How long do you cook Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer?

Once they are in the basket, air fry them for 8 minutes at 360 degrees.  This should be enough time to get them browned on top and the bottom done as well.  If you want them a bit more crispy, cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

We have found 8 minutes is the magic number for our preferred taste and texture. 

I haven’t tried this particular method with other brands of cinnamon rolls, I’ve tried Aldi and a variety of others just in the oven but none of them seem to compare to Pillsbury.

If you do use a different brand, check-in on them after 6 minutes to adjust the time if needed.

Can you use Aluminum Foil or Parchment Paper in the Air Fryer?

Aluminum Foil is easy to use in the Air Fryer.  If you plan to use foil for Cinnamon Rolls, I’d suggest using this parchment paper that is made for the air fryer.

This parchment paper fits right over the holes in the air fryer and will help keep the air circulating and you won’t have anything sticking to the bottom too. 

What about biscuits in the air fryer?

    This is a great idea for a quick breakfast treat. I live in Florida and turning on the oven in the summer is not an option. Thanks for sharing. Pinning.
