Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bunnies

Last Updated on May 29, 2019

Dress up your Easter breakfast or brunch with these festive Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bunnies. They are so easy to prepare and will be a delight for young and old to nibble on as you start the day. I use soy-free Annie’s cinnamon rolls and then dress these rolls up to look like little Easter bunnies. 

Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bunnies

I love Easter and there is no denying that. From all the pastel colors to decorate the home, a celebration of Jesus, and the fun family gatherings, Easter is just a splendid time of year for me. I recently enlisted the help of my kids to make these fun Air Fryer Bunny Cinnamon Rolls and they had a blast.

I showed them how to shape the cinnamon rolls and some turned out better than others, LOL! Once the rolls cooled, the real fun began as we began decorating them. It was a fun way to kick-start the day and help teach the kiddos how to cook, which is an essential life lesson. 

Delicious Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bunnies 

Best of all these cinnamon roll bunnies take a just a few minutes to prep. All that’s left is to pop them in the Air Fryer and wait. I can’t tell you how good these Annie’s cinnamon rolls smell as they bake in the oven. We bought this brand because it is soy free. You are welcome to use any brand of cinnamon rolls you like, but we chose this particular brand because we have a soy allergy in our home. 

Giving the bunnies ears is what really can transform these cinnamon rolls into bunny rabbits. Have fun letting your kids help decorate the cooled cinnamon rolls. That is what makes these rolls even more special. 

What If I Don’t Have an Air Fryer 

If you do not have an Air Fryer, you can very easily shape and make these bunnies the exact way and bake in the oven. Just follow the cooking guide on your cinnamon roll package. Personally, I prefer using my Air fryer for the ease, the taste, and the texture is amazing. 

Can You Reheat Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bunnies 

The trouble is once you add in the chocolate chips, jelly bean, and almonds, it’s harder to reheat and the texture changes. If you prefer a warm cinnamon roll, remove the jelly bean and then heat the roll in the microwave. The chocolate chips will melt, so be aware of that. You could also try removing the chips as well. 

This recipe IS soy free like I said. If you want more allergy friendly recipes, make sure you join my allergy friendly group-
