This 1-Bowl Vegan Zucchini Bread is moist, fluffy and made with just 10 wholesome ingredients! (Gluten-free & Oil-free)




  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or line a 8×4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. 
  2. In a bowl, mix the flax seed and water together and let it sit for 10 minutes until thick.
  3. In the meantime, grate the zucchini and then gently squeeze out excess liquid. It should weight around 230g before squeezing out the liquid and then 170g after. 
  4. Into a large bowl, add in the coconut sugar, apple sauce, peanut butter, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla. Stir well to combine. Then mix in the flax egg and zucchini.
  5. Sift in the flour, baking powder,baking soda and cinnamon if using. Mix the batter using a folding motion until everything is well combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the lined loaf pan and place into the oven for 50-55 minutes. At the 30 minute mark, rotate the loaf pan and cover with tin foil. Place it back into the oven until fully cooked through. Test with a toothpick by inserting it in the middle of the loaf and making sure it comes out clean. 
  7. Allow it to cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes. Carefully remove from the pan and allow it to fully cool before slicing through.


  • If no apple sauce, substitute with full fat coconut milk. It adds an extra richness to it which is really nice.
  • For a less sweet zucchini bread, reduce sugar to 1/4 cup. For a sweeter zucchini bread, increase sugar to 1/2 cup.
