Ingredients for Vegan Fudge Zucchini Brownies with Sprinkles
Here’s what you need to make the best vegan fudgy zucchini brownies:
All-purpose flour. I use organic flour from Bob’s Red Mill.
Zucchini. Grate your zucchini in a food processor or with a box grater.
Cane sugar. You can also use coconut sugar.
Cocoa powder. Choose unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder.
Vanilla. I highly recommend pure vanilla for the best flavor.
Flax egg. Make this by combining 4 tablespoons of ground flax meal with 8 tablespoons warm water.
Almond milk. You can easily make your own no-soak almond milk. Also, any plant-based milk you like will work.
Vegetable oil. You can swap this out with melted vegan butter if you like.
Chocolate bar. Choose a high-quality vegan chocolate bar. You could also use vegan chocolate chips if you like.
Sprinkles. For a nice pretty crunch on top.
Gluten-Free Vegan Zucchini Brownies
If you’d like to make this dairy-free recipe gluten-free, it’s easy. Simply swap the all-purpose flour for Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free 1-to-1 blend. Also, reduce the almond milk to 1/3 of a cup.
If you don’t already love zucchini like I do, at least you can appreciate these impressive health benefits!
One zucchini has just 25 calories (compared to a baked potato, for example, which has 130 calories).
The flower of the zucchini plant is also edible.
A zucchini has more potassium than a banana.
They’re hydrating and high in fiber!
Biggest is NOT best. The most flavorful zucchinis are small- to medium-sized.
How to Store Leftover Brownies
Store leftover vegan brownies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days. You can freeze the brownies for up to six months.
These brownies are delicious all on their own. If you want to cut some of the rich chocolate flavor, you can serve them with a scoop of vegan ice cream or coconut whipped cream.
