25 Yummy Zucchini Dessert Recipes 1

1. Zucchini Pecan Bars

These pecan bars are to die for.

They’re sweet, buttery, and loaded with wonderfully crunchy pecans.

They’re also full of zucchini, which makes them a terrific low-carb option for people on the keto diet.

Plus, they only have eight net carbs per serving!

So if you want a delicious treat that is both nutritious and delicious, give these bars a try.

2. Zucchini Brownies

Looking for a recipe that doesn’t require any fancy ingredients?

These zucchini brownies are the solution!

They’re soft, fudgy, and full of chocolatey goodness.

Just like regular brownies, they’re impossible to resist.

But instead of using flour and sugar, these ones use a gluten-free alternative – instant oats.

It makes everything taste better with added oats in the mix.

3. Zucchini Juice Tonic With Ginger & Lemon

Looking for a delicious, health-conscious way to boost your morning energy?

There’s no better way than zucchini juice with ginger and lemon.

The combination of lemon and ginger is the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

It has the same clean, sweet taste that makes it a great match for honey.

4. Zucchini Dessert Crisp

This zucchini dessert crisp is essentially a miniature sweet potato casserole.

You’ll make it with zucchini and spices and serve it on top of a bed of vanilla waffles.

The recipe calls for butter, but you could all use coconut oil if you prefer, too.

5. Zucchini Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

This zucchini cake is so good, you won’t even miss the filling.

You can also create a unique cream cheese frosting that goes well with any type of fruitcake and chocolate or vanilla cake.

Make it vegan by adding almond milk to the whipped cream topping.

Or add some vegan butter for a rich and decadent taste.

6. Lemon Zucchini Drops

Pumpkin seeds are a great addition to any dessert, but I keep this one for parties.

You’ll need to toast the pumpkin seeds first before mixing them into the batter.

It gives them a nice crust and makes everything pop.

For some extra color, toss in a handful of chopped mandarin oranges.

If you want something super simple, try using just zucchini instead.

7. Chocolate Zucchini Cake With Coconut Frosting

I’m a bit of a chocolate cake person, but this one is definitely in my top five.

It’s moist, fudgy, and just the right amount of sweet.

Plus, you can use any type of nut butter you like.

I prefer to use peanut butter as it will give this a mild flavor.

Feel free to add extra fruits and nuts if you want it extra rich.

8. Zucchini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Move over, Oreos! These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are everything you love about the famous treat.

These incredibly easy and delicious cookies are made with oats, chocolate chips, and shredded zucchini.

Best of all, they’re healthier than your typical store-bought cookie!

9. Zucchini Bread Breakfast Cookies

Sounds tasty, right?

I think everyone will love these zucchini cookies.

They’re buttery, soft, and a bit sweet.

The flavor is similar to a banana bread, but the texture is slightly lighter.

This recipe makes several different flavors of zucchini bread.

So you can pair them with any of your favorite breakfast foods.

If you want something a little more savory, try adding some ham to the mix!

And these zucchini egg muffins are the perfect way to start my day.

These muffins are made with fluffy eggs and cheese, giving them incredible texture.

Plus, they’re topped with a sweet and savory maple syrup glaze.

They’re also super easy to make because they use store-bought muffin mix!

11. Zucchini Crisp Bars

I don’t know how you make these crisp bars so tender and light, but I’m pretty sure it has to do with the quinoa flour.

It gives the crust a nice chewy texture that contrasts perfectly with the chunky veggies.

The best part is that these are pretty effortless – just bake them until golden brown, then top them off with a quick glaze of powdered sugar.

They also have plenty of chopped nuts and fruit for added flavor and color.

If you have time, add in some dried cranberries for extra gut-busting goodness!

12. Zucchini Brownies With Peanut Butter Frosting

Are you a peanut butter lover?

The crunchy peanut butter topping adds a nice contrast between the rich brownie base.

16. Zucchini Walnut Cake

Tender and moist, this zucchini cake is a must-try if you’re looking for a healthy dessert.

It has all the classic flavors of a traditional cake – cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, eggs – but it’s thinner than your average cake.

That makes it perfect for summertime when you want something light and tasty.

It’s also good any time of year.

A quick bake will be all you need to make these gorgeous cakes!

17. Moist Pecan Zucchini Bread

Zucchini bread is a great way to use up all your summer squash, but it might not be the most nutritious.

Luckily, this recipe uses mozzarella instead of cream cheese.

I love how the bread’s light and fluffy texture contrasts nicely with the rich taste of cheese.

And don’t underestimate the power of adding chopped pecans! The nuts add a nice crunch that elevates the dish.

This is another great deal-grabbing recipe that isn’t too heavy or dense.

This lemon raspberry zucchini bread is one of the lightest, fluffiest desserts around.

The base is a wonderful mix of all-purpose flour, sugar, and baking soda.

It’s sweet with a subtle tang that balances nicely against the tartness from the raspberries.

Top this with a lemon glaze for an extra special treat.

21. Butterscotch Zucchini Blondies

Sweet and buttery blondies are perfect for any occasion.

Butterscotch is a tasty addition to the mix, giving these blondies a lovely caramel taste.

Not only that, but you’ll add chopped nuts too which give them an added crunch.

This cake is light, moist, and bursting with lemon flavors.

It’s also wonderfully sweet and lemony, so it’ll satisfy your craving for something sweet.
