Vegan Zucchini Brownies Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 25 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


For the Zucchini Brownies:

2 cups All Purpose Flour (250g)

1 cup Cocoa Powder (86g) Unsweetened

2 cups White Granulated Sugar (400g)

2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1 Tbsp Instant Coffee Powder

2 cups Shredded Zucchini (280g) Packed

1 cup Vegetable Oil (240ml) or Canola Oil

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

For the Chocolate Fudge Topping:

1/3 cup Vegan Butter (75g)

1/3 cup Soy Milk (80ml) or other non-dairy milk

1 and 1/2 cups White Granulated Sugar (300g)

1 cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (175g) or Chopped Vegan Chocolate


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2Sift the flour and cocoa into a mixing bowl and then add the white sugar, baking powder, salt and instant coffee powder and mix together.

3Add the shredded zucchini, oil and vanilla and mix. The batter will look much too dry at this point and like it won't come together. Leave the bowl to sit for a couple of minutes while you prepare your baking tray.

4Spray a 9x13 quarter sheet pan with non-stick spray and set aside.

5Return to your mixing bowl and stir again, the zucchini should have released a little bit more moistness into the bowl and it should come together now into a thick batter. Transfer the batter to the baking pan and use the back of a spoon to press it down and smooth it out so that it reaches all the corners and is evenly spread out across the baking pan.

6Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

7While the brownies are cooling, prepare your chocolate fudge topping.

8Melt the vegan butter in a saucepan and then add the sugar and soy milk. Stir constantly until it reaches a full boil. When I say full boil I mean it will start foaming up as it boils (use a big enough pot to allow for this to happen). When it's reached a full boil remove from the heat and add in the chocolate chips and stir furiously until they have melted completely and it's a thick chocolate sauce. It will start to want to set once the chocolate is melted in so work quickly.

9Pour it immediately over the top of the still warm brownies and leave to set.

10Once the topping has set cut your brownies into squares and enjoy.
