Sampling of Recipes in Gluten-Free Zucchini Dessert Roundup on All Gluten-Free Desserts

Wow! This roundup took almost as much time and effort as the cattle roundup that Mr. GFE, Son, and Nephew took part in when we visited a working guest ranch in Montana years ago. Their group spent hours of effort finding all the cows and then “pushing” them to where they needed to be. They actually rounded up well over 100 cows—and their wrangler was truly impressed!—but they didn’t find them all.

Likewise, I found over 60 recipes from All Gluten-Free Desserts’ featured contributors, but still missed some I’m sure. Of course, I guess a more apt analogy would be when you go out to the garden well into the growing season and expect to find a handful of zucchini and soon your arms are so full that you’re dropping zucchini along the way. When you visit again in a day to two, you find out you missed several on your previous trip, which have now become “Zuke-Zillas”! (Note:  I’m stealing that term from Tessa!)

Who knew there were so, so many excellent zucchini dessert recipes? I do feel like this post is the Zuke-Zilla of roundups! And I might have missed some stellar zucchini dessert recipes, but there are plenty wonderful ones in this grouping! I’ve categorized them into bread recipes, muffin recipes, cake recipes, brownie recipes, and “other” recipes, with information shared on their “free” status (e.g., dairy free, grain free; from my own quick review of the ingredients). I’ve captured the photos in collages only this time, but you can click on the links to see the full-size photos and, of course, get the recipes on the individual bloggers’ own blogs. Enjoy!

  1. Oh my gosh! I can’t believe this round-up of zucchini recipes. You are one amazing gluten-free dessert blogger. I can’t believe this and am anxious to really go through all these recipes and discover new ways of using zucchini. How fun!! This could be a book! Oooh, that’s not a bad idea. =)

    Well, once again, you’ve shown why you really are the queen of GF blogging. Thank you for this, Shirley. I know it must have been a lot of work and those of us out here with tons of zucchini appreciate it!

    Melissa

    • Melissa–You leave the absolute sweetest comments! :-) Thanks, dear! This one did take some effort, but it was worth it! And wouldn’t it be fun to have a zucchini potluck with both savory and sweet recipes? ;-) My friend Lydia of The Perfect Pantry just did a zucchini recipe e-book. ;-)

      xo,
      Shirley

  2. Holy zucchini overload!! What great place to come when I want to use up some excess zucchini this time of year. So many amazing desserts. . . so little time! :)

    • Ricki—Sigh … that shortage of time is always the case, isn’t it? :-( I’d love to get together with all these bloggers and sample their treats, wouldn’t you? ;-)

      Shirley

  3. Super wow! I love having all these recipes ideas at my finger tips, I have already spotted several I am anxious to try! Thanks Shirley!

    • Thanks, Tessa! I love the variety of these. You guys outdid yourselves, and thank you for your Zuke-Zilla term. That makes me smile every time! :-)

      Shirley

  4. Good timing, Shirley. I have a zucchini the size of a baseball bat available for multi-recipe testing. Already made a batch of my tried and true fresh apple zucchini bread. I still have about a foot and a half of that zucchini left. And some blueberries. Several good options among your VAST selections.

    • Kay–You have a Zuke-Zilla!!! LOL Apple Zucchini Bread sounds absolutely terrific! :-) Hope you have great success with one or more of these recipes. ;-)

      Shirley

  5. Just when I was starting to complain about all of this darned zucchini…now I’m wishing there was even more growing in the garden! Thank you for these wonderful round-up posts. I always discover multiple recipes that I want to make that I otherwise would miss!

    • Johnna–Isn’t that always the case? I’ll have real food that I can’t figure out what to do with and then the moment it’s gone, I see the perfect recipe! ;-) Thanks for your ongoing enthusiastic support of AGFD, dear!

      Shirley

  6. What an insane round up! The one-stop-shop for all those looking for ways to use up their zucchini. Well done, Shirley!

  7. Wow, Shirley, that’s a pretty fantastic collection of zucchini recipes! I’ve got enough zucchini in the garden right now to try a bunch of them — can’t wait. :) Thanks for this!

    • Lisa–I love having you and others’ fantastic recipes “at my fingertips,” so to speak. :-) I’m sure others will, too. Hope you find some new favorites with your fresh, homegrown zucchini!

      Shirley

  8. Do you know what I love best about your round ups? You clearly state which recipes or dairy, egg or whatever free so I don’t get frustrated looking for recipes where replacing extra allergens is going to pose a problem.
    So, THANK YOU!!!

    • Hi Laurel–Good to see you over here at AGFD! And thank you so much for this wonderful feedback! I’ve tried to share that info “up front” more and more because I know that so many of us have additional food intolerances, but we don’t have time to dig through the recipes. You are welcome! :-)

      Shirley

  9. I was so bummed that squash vine borer got my zucchini plant before I harvested a single one. I love zucchini, and this is a terrific roundup of recipes! Thanks so much for including mine.

    • Linda–Considering you hosted SquashFest a while back, that just doesn’t seem right! Ugh on those garden invaders! :-( I’m always happy to include your wonderful recipes! :-)

      Shirley

  10. Haha! Fancy comparing your search for recipes to rounding up cattle, you make me giggle! Though I imagine it was probably quite a challenge!! Every year when I read about the gathering of zucchini from the gardens in your part of the world, I envisage gardens full to the brim with nothing but zucchini! It’s a funny vision!

    I love that you’re gathering up types of recipes all in one place, so helpful if you’re seeking a recipe and so easy to find another if you’re missing an ingredient for one!

    Thank you :)

    • Vicky–No analogy is too far off base for me. ;-) It is what I thought of though … looking high and low for all those different cows and pushing them into the right spots. LOL I LOVE your recent recipe with zucchini and peas! Your local term courgettes sounds even more wonderful than zucchini IMHO. :-) Thanks so much for the kind feedback, dear!

      Shirley

  11. Wow- such a great group of recipes Shirley! My Virgo self loves the idea of a collection of one kind of recipes, let alone grouped into categories- perfect!
    I was working on my own zucchini cookie recipe and I think I need to just make it one more time but it is just too dang hot here to bake right now. (so I’m working on my jewelry instead!)

    • Andrea–It just doesn’t seem fair when berries, zucchini, etc. are in abundance, that it’s just too hot to bake, does it? I’m all for you making jewelry instead. Particularly since I know how lovely it is and actually own some of it! :-)

      Shirley

  12. This post will certainly help gardeners with lots of leftover zucchini crop! I’m thinking the crops in northern California weren’t stellar this year, as there hasn’t been a big zucchini push at the local markets like usual.

    • I hope so, Alisa! I wonder if the less than stellar year in CA related to the issues with the shortage of honeybees. I know there weren’t as many almonds this year because of that issue. :-(

      Shirley

  13. What an amazing resource for zucchini recipes! Thank you! Alas, my garden didn’t produce zucchini as I had hoped it would this year. I do have high hopes for next season though! Pinned and ready!

    • Hi Sue–Welcome! :-) So glad you can call on this roundup in the future. Sending good zucchini-growing karma your way for next season! ;-)

      Shirley

  14. Thanks for putting this together! I know where to go next time I’m feeling like making a zucchini treat!

  15. Your BEST post EVER! (Except the ones with animals;-) Cannot ever have enough recipes for the zucchini that runneth over! But this is a great start:) Thanks, Shirley!

    • Awww, thanks, Karen!! You know I could have kept going and going with this post. I’ve learned that gluten-free zucchini recipes are pretty much as abundant as zucchini can be. ;-) Newly inspired, I picked up some zucchini yesterday. Now I must decide which recipe I’ll try first!

      Shirley

    Hi Shirley! I can’t tell you how much you have helped my daughter on her gf journey. (she is 10 months in.) As time has passed, she has eliminated dairy, nightshades, all grains, (most) sugar and beef. It has been quite a lifestyle change for a 21 year old single mom, and full-time college student. The help and encouragement on your blog have been amazing! Thank you so much! We are going to try several of these recipes this week with the fresh produce we have been given. Much love to you for the blessings you provide!

    • Hi tailorlady–Welcome to All Gluten-Free Desserts! Your comment truly made my day yesterday and continues to make me smile, and will whenever I think of it! :-) Thank you so very much for taking the time to let me know about your daughter’s success living gluten free and “more free.” It’s just wonderful to hear that kind of feedback and I’m absolutely thrilled for her and for you! Best of luck with all the recipes you try!

      xo,
      Shirley

  17. This is my first year to grow zucchini and we have very good soil up here in Minnesota. I had heard the jokes about having an abundance of zucchini and now I understand! Wow! I planted just a few seeds and have huge plants and have brought in some huge ones – they grow over night it seems. I am shredding and freezing and now I have more recipes – thanks! I made zucchini bread already but had a reaction (I am celiac, but have other food allergies not pin-pointed yet) and now wondering if I am allergic to cinnamon, or as someone mentioned – buckwheat. Zucchini breads and deserts all winter now from my freezer.
    Thank you for the recipes!

    • Hi Terri–Welcome! Congrats on your zucchini success, although admittedly, the abundance can be a mixed blessing! ;-) I’m so sorry that you had a reaction to your first recipe. I, too, have issues with buckwheat. I hope you find many recipes here that you enjoy! There are so many possibilities, huh? :-)

      Shirley

  18. I love this! We have oodles of zucchini since we let it be known far and wide that we’ll take everybody’s extras to help feed our big family. :) I’ve been using it on the grill and also developed these wonderful triple chocolate zucchini mini donuts http://www.examiner.com/list/easy-triple-chocolate-zucchini-mini-donuts-gluten-free-dairy-free (gluten free, dairy free, soy free, corn free, etc. but does have sugar and eggs) and that was a big hit with the kids. I also read a great tip to shred zucchini, press out the moisture and pack it into one cup measuring cups and pop them out and freeze them like that on a baking sheet until hard, then bag them up as one-cup zucchini “pucks” for baking later. I thought that was brilliant and will doing that as well. I’m so happy to have all these recipes to try out with some more of the excess though. Pinned and shared. Thanks!

    • Hi Magic and Mayhem–Sorry I am just now replying! I have been busy with out-of-state guests the last week. ;-) Welcome to All Gluten-Free Desserts! :-) And your mini donuts recipe certainly sounds divine. ;-) Thanks for the tips, too. I have frozen zucchini every year, but have not used the pucks method. I like it! Thanks so much for pinning and sharing and please enjoy all these recipes! :-)

      Shirley
