Vegan Zucchini Muffins Recipe

Delicious, soft and moist – this is how I will describe my Vegan Zucchini Muffins. 

Wait, what? Zucchini in Muffins? How will it taste? Why add them? And will they be sweet or savoury Muffins? Don’t worry; I’ll answer them all. 

Well, these are sweet muffins with brown and castor sugar, both being used in the recipe. There is no prominent taste of zucchini in the Muffins. Yes, the shredded zucchini shrinks to almost like a thread, and you won’t taste it. But then, why are we adding zucchini if there is no taste of it in the muffins? That’s because they are a great source of moisture in the baked good. They add a lot of moisture to the muffins, making them super moist and soft.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

The Muffins are easy to make and taste super delicious; this should be enough reason to love any recipe, right? Wait, let me tell you why you will exactly like this recipe. 

  • Cinnamon: since zucchini has no taste in the muffins, you will find cinnamon as the dominant flavour in this recipe. Simple muffins with cinnamon and brown sugar make them incredibly tasty. 
  • Vegan: It has become one of my missions to make delicious vegan recipes for you all. The recipe is vegan friendly, meaning no dairy products are used, and yet it tastes similar to what a dairy muffin would taste like. 
  • Zucchini: zucchini in baked products can seem odd but trust me, they are a game changer in any recipe. The amount of softness and moisture they provide is impressive. I will be making more zucchini-based products in the future. 

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Vegetable oil: Using oil helps keep the muffins soft and tender. Unlike butter which solidifies at room temperature, oil remains liquid, keeping the moisture locked in the Muffins. 
  • Brown sugar: It provides a deeper taste to the muffins. The molasses not only adds colour to the muffins but also brings a certain caramelized depth to the flavour.
  • Cinnamon and vanilla essence: They both contribute to the flavour composition of the muffins. Without them, the muffins will taste completely bland. 
  • Zucchini: As discussed above, it is an essential ingredient used in the recipe that moistens the muffins. And the best part is that they don’t hinder the taste of the muffins. 

How To Make Vegan Zucchini Muffins 

  • Preparation: Gather all the ingredients needed for the recipe. Preheat your oven to 180C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan). Line a muffin tray with muffin liners. 

  • Dry Ingredients: Sift the dry ingredients, i.e., flour, baking powder, baking soda, castor sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon powder, and salt. Give this a stir.

  • Wet Ingredients: In a different bowl, collect all wet ingredients, i.e., oil, vanilla essence and soy milk. 
  • Batter: Mix the liquid ingredients with the dry ones and combine them to make a smooth batter. Ensure no lumps are there. 
  • Zucchini: Add shredded zucchini into the prepared batter and mix. 

  • Bake: Transfer the batter equally into the lined muffin tray and bake the Muffins at 180C (OTG mode: lower rod only) for 25-30 minutes. 

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Add Nuts

The Muffins are versatile in the sense that you can add any nut of your liking. Walnuts or pecans will go best with the recipe. You can either add them on top or inside the batter.


Tip for Zucchini 

Use freshly shredded zucchini. Do not store or buy pre-shredded zucchini, as they will dry up and have little moisture. 

Tip for Oil

You can use any other vegan-friendly oil such as canola oil, coconut oil or olive oil in place of vegetable oil.

How To Store Vegan Zucchini Muffins 

Once the Muffins are baked and cooled, store them in the airtight box at room temperature. They will last up to 5-7 days.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Should I drain the zucchini before adding it to the batter? 

Squeezing or draining the juice will remove the moisture we need in the Muffins. So until and unless the zucchini is excessively juicy, do not drain it. 

Why is my zucchini muffin dry?

This is very unusual as the Muffins are supposed to be super moist. If your muffins come out dry, this would mean either you haven’t measured your dry ingredients properly (flour is more) or have overbaked the muffins. 

Do you leave the skin on when grating the zucchini? 

While you might feel the need to peel the skin off but it is not really required. You can keep the skin on and use the zucchini as it is. The zucchini shrinks almost entirely, so it will be unnecessary to peel it.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
