Zucchini Bread Dairy-Free Egg-Free (VIDEO)

This simple zucchini bread was one of our first recipes here at Milk Allergy Mom. 

It contains no milk and no egg and no fancy replacements. Just basic ingredients from your kitchen.

Yet, it tastes just like classic homemade zucchini bread that you know and love.

From toddlers to grown-ups, this zucchini bread is sure to please all. 

See recipe below.

Once upon a time, I found myself with a huge stash of zucchini…

and needed an easy way to use it up.

Zucchini bread came to mind,

and I knew my then toddlers would chow it down.

But finding a milk-free and egg-free zucchini bread recipe was nearly impossible back in those days…

long before vegan recipes were popular.

So I decided to try my banana bread recipe using zucchini instead of banana.

And guess what.

A true miracle happened, it turned out amazing!

Since then, we haven’t looked back.

Once I knew the banana switch worked so well,

I was ready to plug in other produce to make pumpkin bread, apple bread, and more.

It’s all fair game with our quick bread recipe.

Milk-Free and Egg-Free Zucchini Bread

If you don’t have an hour to wait for this deliciousness to come out of the oven,

or if it’s summer and you don’t want the oven on too long…

just pour this zucchini bread batter into muffin tins (affiliate).

Muffin tin zucchini bread takes half the time.

Add chocolate chips, sprinkle the tops with raw sugar before baking, and you’ve definitely arrived.

Zucchini chocolate chip muffins are just as delicious as zucchini bread.

See our easy zucchini bread recipe below.

pan of zucchini bread


Preheat oven to 350


1.5 cups all purpose flour
1.5 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 egg or 3 tablespoons applesauce
1 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 or 3/4 cup sugar (your preference)
1/4 cup liquid coconut oil or vegetable oil
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)


Grease loaf pan or use a non-stick USA bread pan (affiliate) that doesn’t need greased.

In a medium bowl, mix the first set of dry ingredients and make a well in the center:

1.5 cups all purpose flour
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

In small bowl, mix the second set of wet ingredients:

1 egg or 3 tablespoons applesauce
1 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 or 3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup liquid coconut or vegetable oil
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)

Add wet mixture to dry mixture.

Stir just until combined. 

Spoon the batter into your greased or non-stick bread pan. It will be thick.

Bake 40-50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean from the center. Make sure the center is baked through.

Cool on a wire rack, in the bread pan.

Once cool, cover the bread pan tightly with foil. 

The flavors will be melded together the next day, but who can really wait that long?!

Feel free to enjoy it hot out of the oven with dairy-free butter.

Hope you enjoy this no milk, no egg zucchini bread as much as we do!

Do you squeeze out the zucchini before adding?

We sure don't, Mary. Not anymore. :) We think it makes the bread extra moist. YAY!

Can I substitute the white/wheat flour for almond flour or any other healthier flour? If yes, will it be a 1:1 ratio?

Thank you so much!

Almond flour is quite different than wheat. But several mamas replace flour in our recipes with 1:1 gluten-free flour blends. I hope that helps!

My grandson has PKU and can not have any protein/ dairy. I’m going to make The zucchini bread for him tomorrow. I hope it’s as good as all the comments say.😊

Hi there. Any other suggestions for the applesauce and flaxseed? O can't try those yet for my baby girl. She loves pumpkin I wonder if this would work as a replacement of the apple sauce? Anyone very knowledgeable with baking and know if it would work?

Thanks so much!

Hi Stephanie, Pumpkin should work. Or honestly, I've done it with nothing to replace missing applesauce and it still turned out! lol!! I think it's hard to fail. Hope you love it!
