What do you make when it’s the end of the summer and you have loads of leftover zucchini? My Zucchini Bread Recipe of course 🙂 What makes my recipe a bit different (and how I kept it vegan) is that I used aquafaba for the egg-replacer.
What is Aquafaba?
Aquafaba, if you are unfamiliar, is nothing more than a fancy name for the water that comes along with your canned chickpeas. I promise, you won’t taste a thing, but it performs similarly in recipes to an egg. So let’s get started!
Using a hand grater, or even better…a food processor with the grating attachment, you’ll grate two medium zucchini (skins on). There is no need to squeeze out the liquid in this recipe.
Add all-purpose flour…
Along with baking soda AND baking powder. We’re using both in this recipe.
A bit of salt…
Additionally, and not shown here, an egg replacer of your choosing. For a sweeter end product, choose unsweetened applesauce. Today however, I used Aquafaba.
Just add a bit of vanilla extract. We’re almost there!
Chopped walnuts (or any other nut of your choosing) are completely optional. Omitting them completely will not affect the end product.
Give it all a good mix!
Pour it into a greased loaf pan and spread until smooth.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean. Take care not to over bake, or it will be too dry.
Doesn’t that look amazing?
It’s so moist inside and I would challenge any non-vegan to detect that this isn’t their “traditional” loaf! I like mine warm with a dab of vegan margarine. SO good!!!

I made this using spelt and it didn’t cook through and burnt on the bottom ?
Hi Hannah, unfortunately when you substitute ingredients such as spelt flour and recipe was tested to perform with all purpose flour, I cannot guarantee the same result as it’s no longer my recipe you are following. I did a few quick Google searches and found your experience is actually common when using spelt. The only thing I can recommend if you are wanting to use spelt is to experiment a bit more. It’s not an ingredient I use in my baking. Hope you’ll give it another try at some point 🙂
This was delicious!!! Super moist plus a crisp crust on top. I used the applesauce option, which may have made it too sweet. I’m sure the aquafaba would be great too. I also added just a teaspoon of vanilla. Thanks for the recipe!
So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
