High carb, low-fat vegan Zucchini Bread Bites are perfect for snacking on while sneaking in some extra veggies! Gluten-free and only sweetened with fruit, these bites are great for kids and adults alike. All the taste of zucchini bread with no need to turn the oven on!
Spring is here! Days are getting longer! Fresh Produce is back! The sun is shining!
Trying to focus on alllll the good stuff right now plus things that we have control of because stressing about things that are out of out control will NEVER serve us long term.
One thing we have control of? Nourishing our bodies!
And that starts with the food we make for ourselves.
You all know I love sharing easy healthy recipes with you and today’s recipe is no different. It combines some of my favorite ingredients from Bob’s Red Mill PLUS zucchini for some added veggie nutrients in your day.
I actually love adding veggies to baked goods or, in the case of these Zucchini Bread Bites, no bake snacks!
Fresh zucchini, medjool dates, raw walnuts combined with whole grain instant oats and coconut flour from Bob’s Red Mill makes these bites packed with nutrients to carry you through your day.
They also have a fun, slightly green coloring to them from the fresh zucchini. But green food seems totally appropriate to me because March is the official start of spring!
Sure the weather still isn’t totally cooperating yet, but things are starting to shift and I am counting down the days until all the trees are green, the flowers are in full bloom, and the air is warm(er). Time to welcome back some color into this dreary grey/brown winter world!
The inspiration for these bites comes from my mom’s banana zucchini bread that she used to bake all the time when I was little. She hasn’t made it in years and since I wasn’t able to find my mom’s original recipe, I decided to come up with my own Zucchini Bread Bites to replicate my childhood favorite! And thanks to Bob’s Red Mill products…it was incredibly easy.
Zucchini Bread Bites
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Total Time: 10 mins
- Yield: 10 bites 1x
- Category: Sweet Snacks
- Diet: Vegan
1/2 of a zucchini, grated
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats (52 grams)
1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Flour (28 grams)
6–7 pitted medjool dates (about 107 grams)
heaping 3/4 cup raw walnuts (88 grams)
1/4 cup unsweetened apple butter

Remove mixture from food processor and divide into 10-12 equal sized bites by rolling the dough in your hands. Place in the refrigerator or freezer to set! Store in the refrigerator.
Zucchini bread bites that taste just like a fresh-baked loaf without any of the complicated bread making or baking. Just mix, form into balls, and satisfy though zucchini bread cravings in a pinch! They’re also gluten-free, vegan, and have no added sugar.
You could even add cocoa powder to the original recipe to make a version of Chocolate Zucchini Bread Bites! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that to begin with as I LOVE Chocolate Zucchini Bread as well.
Whether you make these in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day or just to celebrate the oncoming of spring, you’ll love their tasty flavor and nutrient density. Fun to eat too! Which we all know is just as important. 😉
And just a heads up…if you like these bites, just wait till I share my CARROT CAKE BITE recipe! I’m on a bit of a bite roll you could say!

I love zucchini bread! I’ve never seen mulberries before, do you know what a good replacement could be?
Hmmmm, well they are a dried fruit so you could probably try raisins or something like that!
I love zucchini bread! We actually grow zucchini in our backyard so I have a bunch of grated zucchini in the freezer I can use up 🙂
Perfect! I wish I had access to some of that! I want to make more of these!
Hmm I have an avowed no zucchini girl here BUT i’m betting she would change her stance and the two of us made these together!!
Yes yes yes! She totally would! Good luck!!!
These look delicious! I have a new found love for zucchini, so I will be making these asap!

Yay!! Happy to hear that!
Those look devine! Will try!
Thanks Christine! Happy to hear that!
Yum! Apple butter sounds like a great addition in these. I go through phases with favorite foods but zucchini tops my list for the green category right now 🙂
Same here! I think it’s tied with broccoli for me!
I love little bites like this – such an easy, healthy snack for busy days! And I love these zucchini bread bites – one of my favorite breads and definitely perfect for all the green things and for spring! 🙂
Why have I never thought of this combo! It’s genius! Genius – pinning!!

Ooo this look nummy!! I’ve never made anything with mulberries before! I totally know I’ll devour these before sharing with my husband. Which is totally ok, right?!
TOTALLY justified! LOL
This recipe is prefect! Fruit sweetened, gorgeously green, and MULBERRIES!! My mom used to make zucchini bread all the time too, it will always be a favorite of mine. I am loving your twist on it! I like the chocolate idea too, but really just letting the green shine through sounds perfect right now!
These bites are like extremely portable zucchini bread! love it!

Thanks lovely! Enjoy!
These look good. I have pinned and hope to try them once we have some fresh zucchini. I am looking forward to your carrot cake bites too 🙂
Can’t wait to share! You’ll love them just as much!!
My daughter is just discovering her daughter has some food allergies, but she could eat these! I’ll pass this recipe on to her! I’ll make some too – they sound yummy!
That’s awesome! Happy she has something yummy to make!
This sounds like a simple and tasty way to use up the remaining shredded zucchini from last summer’s garden to make room in the freezer for this summer’s crop. I always think of zucchini as a summer food, but what a great way to enjoy all year! Hopefully the spouse and kids won’t know they are healthy.
Hehe! Your kids will never know! They’re so tasty!
I love bites like these and I love zucchini so this is a perfect combination!
Thanks Janelle! Let me know if you try them!
Ooh these sound so easy and delicious! Thanks a lot for sharing 🙂 xoxo
Zucchini is the best – so versatile and these little bites look delish!

Yay! I am so happy you’re going to try it out!
I can’t wait to try this recipe! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!
Can you substitutei the apple butter, coconut flour, or mulberries? I want to try these they look delightful but I don’t have those ingredients!
You could try but I don’t know if they would turn out the same…maybe raisins, applesauce, and almond meal?
Such a creative recipe! I’ve never thought to use zucchini in bites!
Thanks Faith! I try to mix things up!
How creative! These look so yummy! 🙂
I AM a fan of zucchini and this recipe looks delicious! Our snow is starting to melt now and, as we’re planning out our garden for this year, I was thinking zucchini is a must. Zucchini bread is a favorite and I really like the spiralized zucchini “noodles”, too!
Zucchini is totally a must!!! I love growing my own!
how awesome – I have to share this recipe with my daughter who would really love this! thank you!
Thanks Claudia! Let me know if you try them!!
This sounds so delicious I’m not sure that I need an excuse to make them. We could say that they’re for St Patricks Day, spring or even Dr. Seuss’s birthday… But really they’re just for me because I love zucchini bread. And when you toss a Gluten Free recipe at me, for one of my favorites, and the chocolate too? How am I supposed to resist? Can’t wait to try these!
SAME HERE! I absolutely love zucchini bread!
Really interested to try this, I can’t imagine what zucchinis taste like in bread. They look ideal for adding to lunch boxes
