How to Make Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls
- Place cinnamon rolls in a single layer in the air fryer.
- Bake until golden brown and firm when touched.
- Remove and top with icing, if desired.
Make cinnamon rolls in batches if necessary to ensure spacing around the cinnamon roll dough.
Storing Cinnamon Rolls
Keep leftover air fryer cinnamon rolls in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat them in the air fryer on high power. Or pop them into the microwave in a pinch to reheat.
When the air fryer is preheated and before adding the leftover cinnamon rolls, drop an ice cube in the bottom of the air fryer to create steam which will make the cinnamon rolls moist and fluffy again.

REPIN this Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
The center dropped through the rack……should have used the solid tray?
Oh no, I am sorry to hear that Janis! We did not have that issue with baking these cinnamon rolls. They should still cook well on a solid tray, we would love to hear how they turn out for you!
What do you cover them with?
I just use another rack. It seems to help enough to keep them from getting too done on top.
