A few weeks ago while at Aldi, I picked up something interesting. I thought Tom, Jack, and Mason would enjoy them. I didn’t read the directions while in the store.

When I went to make them it said I was supposed to fry them. I haven’t been doing much frying in the name of healthier living, but decided to go with it. Then I got the idea that those of you with air fryers could do this! Or, maybe you already have!

I opened the tube and it looked like cinnamon rolls! In fact, I re-read the name on the label.

So, you can totally do this with your normal, everyday cinnamon rolls.

Cut the pinwheels into thirds like so.

Carefully fry them in vegetable oil on the stove until golden brown. Using tongs, remove and put on a paper towel lined plate.

Squirt or spread frosting on the warm donut sticks.

Do you all have a weekend breakfast tradition? This would be a fun addition to that! I did try a bite and it was yummy! But, what fried food isn’t? Lol!

Let me know if you try this but especially let me know if you try it in your air fryer!

Take it to the next level by making your own icing. They never give you enough and it tastes a bit artificial, you know?

Thanks for reading!

  1. You inspired me to join WW, but sadly I haven’t done much with it. I got discouraged when I entered my usual breakfast of high grain cereal and it was 9 points. I usually lose my weight with Jenny Craig – lost 45 lbs a few years ago and maintained until….well….covid. Now I need to lose 15 and I just can’t get started. I’ll keep trying though! Thanks for inspiring me – now if you would just cook for me that’d be great! hahaha!


    1. Aww, I’m so glad! There is a Facebook group if you search WW Purple. If you are doing green or blue there is probably one for those colors, too.
      Yeah, 9 points is discouraging. I sometimes have a 9 point dinner but try to keep my breakfast low and my lunch fairly low. I wish I could cook for you!
      There might be a lower point alternative. I don’t want to eat a bunch of artificial stuff so I am trying to eat mostly whole foods and proteins. I love an egg or eggs in the morning. Many people do yogurt with fruit and granola.


  2. Those doughnut sticks look yummy! Hey, I was wondering if you could email me. Remember that Savannah Jane top I bought on ebay? Well when it got here it was a dress. Too short for me plus I think it looks a little too young for me. I’m 61. I think it would be great on you. I’d like to give it to you if you want it. Email me and we can work it out if you’re interested.

  3. These are fun! I don’t think I’ve ever seen them. Kind of like the biscuit donuts, I bet these would work well in the AF. Our weekend tradition is that Travis usually picks up donuts from one of our favorite places on Saturday or Sunday.


    1. Yes! Just buy normal cinnamon rolls to try. I think that would be cheaper and it is exactly the same inside! OH – how do you resist a donut? Yum! I haven’t had one in a long time!

  4. I have never seen these! I think Tony would love them for over at the coast. That is where we tend to be more adventurous with breakfast foods. Have you tried the Trader Joes cinnamon rolls? OH MY WORD they are fabulous. I used to make Cinn rolls from scratch for Christmas Day every year but I started making these a few years ago and everyone LOVED them and MUCH EASIER and seriously just as good. They are definitely a treat and what I love it they are huge and only have 5 in pkg. Perfect because that is a red light food for me for sure! Have a great weekend!


    1. I hadn’t either, but like I said, just do regular cinnamon rolls because they are exactly the same. My Dad used to say you can fry anything and that is true. I need to try those. I have avoided them but heard they were good. Same as the frozen Pillsbury biscuits. Why would you go to that trouble when those are delicious and like homemade?
