Our CINNAMON ROLL BITES are cooked in the air fryer in 6 minutes! They come out of the air fryer fluffy in the middle and perfect for dipping in cinnamon roll frosting. We make them from canned cinnamon rolls to make them as easy as possible!
My family is OBSESSED with cinnamon rolls and I’d bet that yours is too. 😉
Our air fryer cinnamon rolls are always a welcomed breakfast, but sometimes I just don’t have time to make cinnamon rolls from scratch!
Enter these adorable little cinnamon roll bites. I mean, sure…you could definitely just pop canned cinnamon rolls in the air fryer and call it good, but we like to step it a step further by rolling them into balls, tossing them in cinnamon and sugar, and then DIPPING THEM IN FROSTING!
If you couldn’t tell, it’s the dip that really makes us love these little air fryer cinnamon roll bites! 😉
Serve these with some air fryer bacon and you’ve got a tasty and easy breakfast!
Canned cinnamon rolls – Be sure to use refrigerated cinnamon rolls that are shaped more like biscuits rather than rolled like a traditional cinnamon roll. The Pillsbury original cinnamon rolls (not the Grands! version) work perfectly.
Cinnamon & Sugar – These give the cinnamon roll bites a little texture on the outside and amps up that cinnamon flavor.
How to make cinnamon roll bites in an air fryer:
Prep the cinnamon rolls – Cut each roll into 4 pieces and roll it between your hands to form a ball.
Cook the bites– Brush oil onto your air fryer basket or spritz it with oil. Add your cinnamon roll balls in a single layer, not letting them touch. Cook at 350 degrees F for 6 minutes.
Toss in sugar – Add the sugar and cinnamon to a small bowl and toss each cinnamon roll bite in that mixture. Then warm the icing and serve it as a dip for the bites!
Pop your leftover cinnamon roll bites into a zip top bag or other airtight container and store on the counter for 2-3 days. Rewarm in the air fryer for 1 minute before serving. Store any leftover frosting in the fridge.
Our cinnamon roll bites took 6 minutes in the air fryer, but different air fryer do cook at different rates. The cinnamon rolls should be golden brown on the outside and fully cooked in the center. Adjust the cook time in 1 minute increments, as needed.
