  2. Grease your donut pan with a baking spray that has flour in it

  3. Mix – flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. 

  4. In a smaller bowl, gently whisk together egg whites, melted butter, skim milk, and vanilla. 

  5. Stir wet mixture into the dry ingredients.

  6. Fill donut pan until each is about 3 quarters full making sure you don’t overfill. 

  7. Bake for 14-17 minutes. Donuts should be golden brown and an inserted toothpick should come out clean.
