The Second Annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale!

Published on April 12, 2010 by   ·   12 Comments Pin It

What could be better than eating and/ or baking sweet treats and saving lives? The second annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) is fast-approaching – this April 24 through May 2, 2010.

Thousands of independent groups will be holding vegan bake sales in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and New Zealand. In 2009, the WVBS raised over $25,000 for a variety of worthy causes, and won VegNews Magazine‘s “Veg Event of the Year” award.

The concept is simple:

Hold a vegan bake sale within (or close to) the April 24 – May2 time period. Do *whatever you want to* (as long as it helps the world!) with the proceeds.

Let the organizers know about your planned bake sale through the easy-as-pie signup form: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakesale/vbs-signup.html.

Here’s your formal (and heartfelt) invitation to participate:http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakesale/announcement-2010-04.htm

Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Makes about 18

  • 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbs barley flour (or whole wheat pastry)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups shredded toasted coconut (toast raw shredded coconut in 300 degree oven for 10 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet)
  • 8 pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat or other vegan sugar
  • 5 Tbs water
  • optional: If you increase the sugar to 1 cup and add 1/2 cup of cocoa powder, calls these Coconut Chocolate Chews.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put all dry ingredients into food processor. Give a whirl. Add coconut, dates and sugar. Whirl until the dates are all chopped and the mixture starts to come together. Add in water through top while running just until a ball forms. Drop spoonfuls and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 16-18 minutes. Via Simple Treats by Ellen Abraham
