  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease donut pans with coconut oil for a total of 12 donuts, or use silicone donut pans or non stick.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a medium-size bowl, combine the coconut oil, milk, mixed chia seed meal and water mixture, vanilla and mix well.
