Zucchini Bread Recipe

Sliced Zucchini Bread

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!

Sliced Zucchini Bread

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.

Along with baking soda AND baking powder. We’re using both in this recipe.

And oil.

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!

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!!!
