Air Fryer Honey-Coconut Sticky Buns Recipe

Air Fryer Honey-Coconut Sticky Buns Recipe

There’s nothing better than a warm sticky bun on a chilly morning, or any morning for that matter. Hot out of the air fryer, dripping with butter-honey and loaded with coconut, these treats are pure heaven!




  • 1 loaf (1 lb.) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 4 oz. (½ cup) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 Tbsp. thawed orange juice concentrate
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup honey
  • Optional: Toasted sweetened shredded coconut and grated orange zest

1. Grease two 8-in. round baking pans that fit in air fryer. Cut thawed bread dough in half; roll each half into a 10x8-in. rectangle. Combine cream cheese, coconut and orange juice concentrate; spread mixture on dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with long side. Cut each roll crosswise into 8 slices; place in prepared pans. Cover; let rise until almost doubled, about 1 hour.

2. Preheat air fryer to 325°. In a microwave, melt butter and honey. Spoon 1 Tbsp. butter-honey mixture over each bun. In batches, place pans in air fryer; cook until tops are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Immediately invert onto a serving plate. If desired, top with toasted coconut and orange zest.
