(gentle music) – Hi, friends, welcome back to my channel If you're new here, my name is Alyssa

Today I have got three recipes for you that use my favorite summer vegetable of all time, zucchini I have been sharing a lot of zucchini-inspired recipes on the blog lately, and I just love it this time of year I love how fresh it is It's a very hydrating vegetable, and I love that it can be turned savory and sweet at the same time So today I'm gonna show you how to use it three different ways

We are making a gluten-free zucchini bread We're also making some dark chocolate, super duper gooey, absolutely delicious zucchini brownies These are probably the best brownies that I've ever made, and they're vegan And we're also gonna be making some five-ingredient zucchini fritters, which are a really lovely summer side dish So all of these recipes are up on the blog for you

If you would like to make them, you can find the links right down below this video in the description box Before we dive in, I would love to invite you to subscribe if you are not yet part of our channel Tap that red button right below this video that says Subscribe And otherwise, let's go ahead and dive in I'm actually gonna start this video by showing you how to prep zucchini for baking

So if you're gonna use grated zucchini in baking, basically you just use a box grater, or you can use a food processor to grate it up And then once you're done, it's really important to squeeze out the liquid So you'll just take all of that grated zucchini, put it in a clean dish towel, and then basically just like you would make almond milk or something like that, you're gonna squeeze all of the liquid out of that zucchini And that's gonna really help make sure that your baked goods aren't too soggy and everything bakes through So I'm using this method for all three of the recipes in today's video, so just keep that in mind as we're going through, and I hope that helps get us started

So let's dive in So we're gonna start with our gluten-free zucchini bread We're gonna use some oat flour, as well as some chickpea flour, almond flour, tapioca starch, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, little nutmeg, some ginger, and a pinch of sea salt And you can just stir that together or whisk it together until it's combined Then we'll add in two beaten eggs, as well as some light flavored oil

I used almond oil here A little bit of almond milk And again, stir that together until it's combined Once you have that batter together, you can just add in your shredded zucchini And again, we'll just fold that together until the zucchini is evenly distributed throughout the batter

Then we will transfer this into a greased loaf tin I like nine by five here And you could top it with stuff if you wanted I just usually leave this bread plain because I don't really feel like it needs much topping, but up to you It would be great with some chocolate chips on top

And then you'll just bake this until it is golden brown and puffy, and when a toothpick is inserted into the center, it comes out clean This is what it looks like It's so pretty And I let it cool completely in the pan before I turn it out and transfer it to a rack, just to make sure that it is completely cool before you slice it because that will make sure that it's not gummy in the center Once you're ready to slice things up, you can just slice it up

And it is so gorgeous I love the texture inside of this It tastes amazing It toasts up beautifully Not too sweet, and also full of nutritious ingredients

I love serving mine with a little bit of peanut butter or almond butter on top, but, again, you can really do anything with zucchini bread It's one (laughs) of those things that just is versatile So I hope you guys give this one a try because it's so yum The second recipe are our zucchini fritters I'm gonna add my shredded zucchini, which I pressed, into the bowl

And then I'm gonna add in some quinoa flour, a little salt and pepper, as well as some sliced up scallions, and then you will stir that together until the flour kind of coats all of the grated zucchini From there, we'll add in a beaten egg And again, stir together until it's combined And I think you can actually make these vegan I have had some people on the channel tell me that they work vegan

So if you don't eat eggs, try them vegan with a flax egg But they definitely cook better with eggs Once you have your dough together, we are actually going to pan fry these up So I just add some olive oil into a pan It's probably three tablespoons or so

And then I let it heat up, and then I drop a spoonful or two of the zucchini batter into the pan I just kind of spread it out and shape it with my spoon And I just repeat to fill the pan and repeat until I've used all the batter These cook for about two to three minutes per side until they are nice and crispy and golden brown on one side, similar to how you cook pancakes And once you have them cooked on both sides, you can just transfer them to a wire rack and complete the cooking process of the other fritters

So here's what they look like They are gorgeous golden brown on the outside, nice and crispy And I love serving these with a dollop of either vegan mayo or maybe some coconut yogurt or something like that And then I do some sort of fresh herb and a little bit of pepper on top And they are so good

They are my favorite thing to make all summer long I love having them as leftovers I toast them up in the toaster oven, and then I spread them with some hummus and avocado and things like that, kind of like a mini sandwich, and they just taste delicious They're so easy to make, and you can change up the spices however you like So I definitely think you guys gotta try these before the summer ends

Last but not least, we're making our flourless vegan zucchini brownies, so good Starts with almond butter And you're just gonna add that into a bowl To that, we'll add in some mashed banana, as well as a flax egg, some coconut sugar for sweetness, and then that's gonna be your wet ingredients So you'll just stir this together until it forms a batterish consistency

Then we'll add in our dry ingredients So the dry ingredients that we're gonna use are cacao powder obviously We're also gonna add in some chocolate protein powder I think you could replace this with additional cacao powder or maybe oat flour, but I actually really like the protein powder I find that it works really well in here

So I like to do chocolate protein powder, some baking powder, and some sea salt And then you will just stir this together until it forms a thick brownie batter Little bit messy, you can see (laughs) The cocoa powder went everywhere But you're basically just looking for a thick brownie batter type consistency

And then we will fold in our zucchini and chocolate chips and call it a day I love this recipe, you guys It is so frickin' good You guys are gonna love it So once you have the zucchini and chocolate chips folded in, you can just transfer this into a parchment-lined brownie pan

I use eight by eight pans here And just use your spatula to kind of press it into the corners It is a thick batter, so you want it to be thick You're gonna have to push it around there But once you have it all spread out evenly and it's smooth and it's into the corners and you're ready to bake it, you can bake it up

So you'll just transfer this into a 350 degree oven It will come out looking like this Definitely need to leave these cool before you slice them I leave them in the pan to cool completely, and then I remove them from the pan using the parchment paper, and I slice them up They are very, very fudgy, so something to keep in mind is if you do have trouble slicing them, clean your knife off between every single slice, and that will help you get a less sticky cut, I guess you could say

But they are definitely fudgy, so they might be a little bit messy, but they are absolutely delicious And you would never know that there (laughs) is secretly some vegetables inside So here is just the texture I want you to see how gooey they are They are so good

I love them And I'll also tell you that my family said that these are some of the best brownies they've ever tasted, so if you're gonna try one recipe in this video, it should probably be these ones And there you have it, my friends, I hope you enjoyed our fabulous zucchini recipes today I love, love, love zucchini It's just one of those vegetables that I literally could eat pretty much (laughs) every meal and not get sick of it

Doesn't have a ton of flavor, really hydrating, like I said, and it's very versatile So if you're interested in trying any of these recipes, they are up on the blog for you You can find them down in the description box below I will also add the link to the zucchini archive on the blog which has all (laughs) of the recipes that I've made using zucchini, which is a lot And there's also some savory ones in there for you as well
