Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup grapeseed oil or melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • ½ cup plant milk
  • 2 cup grated zucchini


  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar, oil, apple sauce, and plant milk. Whisk really well.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredient mixture and combine thoroughly.
  • Stir the grated zucchini into the batter.
  • Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Divide the batter evenly between 12 muffin cups and bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.



Add-ins and Substitutes

  • Substitute other fruits. Applesauce is great as a binder and for flavor, but if you want to add other fresh or dried fruits, you can try blueberries, cranberries, dates, or banana.
  • Add seeds. For a boost of healthy flavor, add chia seeds, flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds.
  • Substitute gluten free. By replacing the all-purpose flour with a gluten free baking flour 1:1, you can make this allergen friendly.
  • Add nuts. These Vegan Zucchini Muffins would also taste great with chopped nuts added in. Enjoy them with almonds, pecans, and walnuts.
