Cinnamon Rolls in the Air Fryer

Coming off of last week's Air Fryer Olympic victory with the chocolate donuts, I wanted to try to make cinnamon rolls for a World Championships win :) I have been craving cinnamon rolls all week, and the rolls turned out amazing! I would call it a win :) Two things that I might do differently next time, though:

1. Let the dough rise a bit before frying (wait about 45 minutes - 1 hour) 

2. Roll the dough a bit tighter when making the rolls

But, overall, they were DELISH!! Here's the super easy recipe adapted a bit from bettycrocker.com.

Ingredients

Cinnamon Rolls:

1/2 cup brown sugar

3 cups Bisquick Gluten Free mix (You can use regular mix too)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 1/4 cup milk

1 egg

2 tbl melted butter

Frosting:

4 oz cream cheese, softened

2 tbl butter, softened

1 1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Pre-heat your air fryer to 350

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon

In a large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, granulated sugar, milk and egg until dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add more Bisquick.

Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper sprinkled with Bisquick. Kneed dough and then roll it into a large rectangle. Brush it was 2 tablespoons of the melted butter, and then sprinkle with the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture. 

Roll dough up, and make sure the sides are pinched, so the dough is sealed well. Cut into 1 1/2 inch slices.

frosting

Place four rolls at the bottom of the air fryer. Cook for 5 minutes at 350. Flip rolls over and cook for an additional 4 minutes. 

For the frosting, combine the softened cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar until a glaze forms. Paint freely on top of the warm rolls.

Enjoy!! :)

Chocolate Donuts in the Air Fryer

**This recipe was adapted from morewaystowellness.com**

My absolute favorite kitchen gadget right now is my air fryer. I want to cook everything in it! I am obsessed with my air fryer for three main reasons:

It cooks much quicker than a conventional oven.

There is very little cleanup. (The only cleanup for these donuts was throwing away some parchment paper.)

It’s the perfect size if you’re cooking for one person.

For this recipe, I used the Gourmia 5 qt digital air fryer, which I bought at Costco. Here’s a link to the fryer.

Ingredients

Donuts:

1 cup of gluten free flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup your favorite sweetener. I used stevia powder.

8 oz plain greek yogurt

ingredients

Icing:

1/4 cup confectioners sugar

2 tbl cocoa powder

2 tbl almond milk

Add sprinkles or chocolate chips to the top

Directions

Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and sweetener. Whisk together until there are no bubbles left in the mixture.

Add the greek yogurt, and use your hands blend the wet and dry ingredients.

Sprinkle a piece of parchment paper with a little bit of cocoa powder and roll the dough with your hands until the dough is no longer sticky. If you need to add more cocoa powder, you can. (I had to!)

Flatten the dough before cutting into four equal squares.

Take each square and roll the dough out into a 3/4 inch tube before creating a circle to make your donut.

Place a small sheet of parchment paper into the top of the fryer, and cook two donuts at a time for 8-10 minutes in your air fryer. 

While the donuts are cooking, make your icing by combining the confectioners sugar, cocoa powder and almond milk. Whisk together.

Once the donuts have cooled, drizzle the icing over top and finish off with either sprinkles or chocolate chips.

Enjoy! These are delicious :)

Edible Cookie Dough

Guys, this. is. amazing 😬👩‍🍳😋 So, some of my favorite memories of skating on the Cape include a group of us snacking on raw cookie dough in the back of the Moonsie’s Skate Shop almost every day before the 2:30 session. (We used to bake cookies in the machine that was meant to heat up leather skates? Bless 😂) Unfortunately, eating raw eggs is kind of scary and can make you sick, but this cookie dough recipe is 100% edible and can be made without eggs, gluten and nuts. You can eat it directly from the bowl, or you can put it in tupperware to store for a snack whenever you want it. It can also double as frosting 😬 But, pause: Don’t try to make cookies from it in an air fryer; I tried that today, and it didn’t so much work 😂

Ingredients:

1 stick of softened butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup gluten free flour
chocolate chips
3 teaspoons milk of choice
Put all ingredients into a large bowl, mix and enjoy!
