Air-Fryer Honey Cinnamon Roll-ups

Air-Fryer Honey Cinnamon Roll-ups

This cinnamon treat reminds me of baklava; but with only a few easy ingredients, it’s a fraction of the work. It’s one of my favorite air-fryer snacks!

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + cooling Cook: 10 min./batch

YIELD: 24 servings.


2 cups ground walnuts, toasted

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

12 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed

1/2 cup butter, melted


1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

1 tablespoon lemon juice


1. Preheat air fryer to 325°. Combine walnuts, sugar and cinnamon.

2. Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a 15×12-in. piece of waxed paper; brush with butter. Place a second phyllo sheet on top, brushing it with butter. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Sprinkle with 1/4 cup walnut mixture. Using waxed paper, roll up tightly jelly-roll style, starting with a long side, removing paper as you roll. Slice roll into 4 smaller rolls. Brush with butter; secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough and 1/4 cups of walnut mixture. In batches, place in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until light brown, 9-11 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Discard toothpicks.

3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine all syrup ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Transfer cinnamon rolls to a serving platter; drizzle with syrup. Sprinkle with remaining walnut mixture.
