1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large egg whites
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt

Place granulated sugar in a small bowl. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Allow to cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
