Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I make these Top 8 Allergen Free?
Yes! Use a gluten free flour instead of all-purpose. We like a 1:1 blend like Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur the best.
Otherwise, you will want to make sure to use safe chocolate chips (like Enjoy Life) and a soy free vegan butter.
How long are these good for?
These vegan zucchini brownies will last for 5-7 days if stored in an air tight container.
Can these easy vegan brownies be frozen?
We cannot recommend freezing these. That being said, it may totally work, but we have yet to try it ourselves.
Can I double the recipe?
Yes, you can double this recipe if you need more and you have two separate baking dishes.
What are the best vegan chocolate chips?
We really love the Enjoy Life brand because they are free from so many allergens.
However, the Organic Top 8 Free chips from Wal-mart (Great Value brand) are accidentally vegan and they have a slightly better pricer point and still taste great.
What other vegan chocolate recipes could I make?
If you love these vegan zucchini brownies, we think you’ll also love these other chocolate ideas:
