Fudgy Zucchini Brownies

  • Author: Liv B


11/4 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

11/4 cups granulated sugar

3/4 cup finely shredded zucchini

1/2 cup oil

1 tsp vanilla


1 can (14 oz) full fat coconut milk

2 cups dairy-free semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Grease an 8×8 square baking pan or line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine sugar, oil, zucchini and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  4. Add zucchini mixture to dry ingredients and stir to form a thick dough. You may want to use your hands!
  5. Press into the prepared baking pan and smooth out the top. Bake 30 minutes, then remove from oven and cool completely.
  6. Meanwhile, in a pot on medium heat, combine the coconut milk and chocolate chips until melted and combined smoothly. Remove from heat and let cool until brownies are completely cooled.
  7. Pour ganache overtop of brownies and smooth into a thin layer. You likely will need a bit more than half. Pu the rest in a container and use as chocolate sauce for ice-cream :).
  8. Place brownies in fridge and let set for about an hour. The ganache will be a sliceable consistency once it has set. Store brownies in fridge or they will become gooey and runny!



  1. it turned out really well, I can’t taste the zucchini AT ALL. When I made the brownies, I didn’t add the ganache on top and the crust and top were a bit dry/crunchy, but I guess if you add the ganache it will solve that problem. Really amazing recipe! ♥

  2. Note to everyone here….do not use avocado oil D: it makes it taste and smell like overly ripe avocados. I should’ve known better. Gonna buy some regular vegetable oil tomorrow!

  3. So good! The best vegan brownie I have tried.

  4. They taste amazing! Nice and fugy ob the inside and crispy on the outside😍
    Unfortunately they stuck to the pan and I couldn’t get them out at all even though I greased it before… maby add a flax egg…?
    Will try that next time 😇
