Goldylocks Productions presents the Live from Little Bear Sanctuary Show with Christopher Vane.
Today, Friday, 11 December 2020 at 12 pm ET.
Christopher Vane co-founded Little Bear Sanctuary, a nonprofit farm animal sanctuary in Punta Gorda, FL, in honor of his late mother Ursula (which translates to “little bear” in Latin). They shared a common passion for animals and Ursula often dreamed of providing neglected, once-abused animals a safe haven.
While originally from New York, Chris surprisingly started off with a career in human healthcare, eventually landing in Florida working as a real estate broker. When he met Randy, everything changed…for the better, that is! Their relationship sparked a new passion to live each day with purpose. After they got married, their desire to provide a better world for farm animals was greatly amplified. Together, Chris and Randy followed through on Ursula’s dream and established the Little Bear Sanctuary in 2017. Now, 160+ rescued farm animals call Little Bear Sanctuary home, and – thanks to Christopher’s compassion and dedication – each animal has been given an opportunity to experience love and freedom.
Little Bear Sanctuary provides a permanent home for farm animals that have been abandoned or can no longer be cared for by the owner in order to allow them to live out the remainder of their lives in a cruelty free environment. We are committed not only to a vegan lifestyle but the much needed education of pigs as pets. Our animals are never kept in cages or pens and are free to roam in their natural habitat.

¾ Cup Caster Sugar (or fine granulated sugar)
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Flax Eggs (2 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seeds & 6 Tablespoons Water)

Powdered Sugar for coating
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make the Flax eggs by stirring the ground flax seeds and water and let sit 15 minutes.
In mixing bowl combine dry ingredients and stir… then add the flax egg and almond extract.
Stir til combined.
NOTE: It might look like you need to add more water.. DON’T, Just keep mixing til the mixture becomes a thick paste that can be formed into sticky balls with your hands.
Using a tablespoon scoop out a bit of mixture and roll into a ball. Toss each ball into the powdered sugar and coat completely.
Place each ball onto a baking tray and gently press the ball with your palm to flatten it slightly.
Bake for 10 minutes.. they will be VERY SOFT. Let cook completely before taking off pan.
