Shredded Zucchini Brownies Dairy-Free

Have a bumper crop of zucchini this year? 

Heck yeah, zucchini brownies are calling your name!

This recipe is easy peasy and requires no milk or egg. BAM!

Zucchini Brownies No Milk or Egg


Here’s another fun way to use up your zucchini harvest…

dairy-free, egg-free zucchini brownies.

That’s right, simple basic ingredients and delicious brownies. 

The hardest part will be shredding the zucchini. 

But it’s so worth it. Trust me. 

Do you kids love eating zucchini? 

Mine either. 


That’s why I’ve been sneaking garden zucchini into baked goods for years. 

No shame in my game!

Sneak in those veggies, mama. 

This recipe makes the most delicious moist and cakey brownies.

And they taste especially rich with frosting. 

Yep, I just went there, lol. 

Do these brownies taste like zucchini?

Nope. Not one bit.

I promise your kids and company will happily eat these.

Even picky toddlers, woohoo!

See our zucchini brownie and frosting recipes below.

I loved getting this question.

When zucchini is shredded for recipes, it does hold a lot of water. 

And that much liquid COULD be too much for the zucchini recipe you’re using. 

So oftentimes shredded zucchini recipes will require you to first squeeze the water out in paper towels before cooking or baking with it. 

I definitely squeeze the water out in our zucchini bread and zucchini cake fritters recipes. 

And I used to wring out the water with this zucchini brownie recipe, too. 

But I remember them coming out pretty dry. 

So this last time I made the brownies, I did not squeeze out the water. 

And guess what. 

My kids and brownie picky husband all said they are the best brownie we’ve ever made. 

By not wringing out the shredded zucchini for this brownie recipe, 

we had the perfect fudgy AND cakey brownies!

I can’t even explain how it emulated both textures at the same time. 

But it did. And I know you will love it as much as we did!

So to reiterate, you’re off the hook. 

No need to drain the shredded zucchini in this recipe!

See the perfection?!

If batter is too dry, add 1 Tb of water at a time until brownie batter consistency…probably 1-2 Tb.

Bake 20-25 minutes a toothpick comes out clean 1″ from the side. Don’t over bake. 

If frosting, wait until the brownies cool. 

Otherwise enjoy warm brownies with a side of dairy-free ice cream!


3 Tb cocoa
1/8 cup dairy-free margarine
1 cup powder sugar
1/8 cup dairy-free milk
1/4 tsp vanilla (affiliate)

Mix ingredients together and spread over cooled brownies.

Hope you enjoy these dairy-free and egg-free zucchini brownies as much as we do!

I made these for my "allergic to everything" brother-in-law and he loved them!!! And so did the whole family, it is a great recipe! I had to use gluten free flour and cane sugar because is also allergic to gluten, eggs, milk, peanuts, white sugar, corn and few other things but they were the best gluten free brownies ever!

I take it that you do not squeeze out the zucchini?

Hi Patricia, in this case I did not. And they turned out perfectly moist and gooey. So unlike for our zucchini bread, I'm going to stick with skipping that step. I'll elaborate on the post for others. Great question!
