Skip the oven – make warm and fluffy Air Fryer Canned Cinnamon Rolls in just 15 minutes! With only a can of refrigerated Pillsbury Grands, this beginner friendly air fryer recipe is a tasty addition to brunch, dessert, or sweet snack!
1 refrigerated can of 5-count jumbo or Grands cinnamon rolls
Prep air fryer basket: Place a piece of air fryer safe parchment paper along the bottom of the air fryer basket. This eliminates any sticking, helps keeps the gooey cinnamon from dripping down, and makes clean up easy.
Add cinnamon rolls: Open up your canned cinnamon rolls and carefully place all five cinnamon rolls into the air fryer basket, evenly spacing with one in each corner and one in the middle. If you have a smaller air fryer, you may need to do this in two batches so your cinnamon rolls are not too close together.
Air fry: Place the basket into the air fryer and cook at 330F for 10-12 minutes total, using tongs to carefully flip the cinnamon rolls over after 6 minutes. This ensures that the tops do not over cook, and the bottoms of the cinnamon rolls are cooked through. Check the cinnamon rolls at 10 minutes and add an additional 2 minutes if the centers look doughy. If any cinnamon rolls are significantly thicker than others, they may need an additional minute or two longer than the rest. NOTE: If you are cooking the 8-count can of cinnamon rolls, reduce cook time by 2-3 minutes.
Serve & store: Using tongs, move the cinnamon rolls to a plate and let them cool for 2-3 minutes, then add your desired amount of icing, and enjoy. Store any leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 2-3 days for best quality.
5-Count Grands vs 8-Count Regular Cinnamon Rolls: I strongly prefer the 5-count cans of cinnamon rolls – they are larger and taste more like something homemade to me! For this recipe, I used Pillsbury Grands Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls.
