I have a book called "Secrets of Fatfree Baking", can't remember the author 
but it has some really nice cakes and cookies in it. I make the carrot cake 
regularly and it is always a hit with my 2-year-old (and my DH, I might 
add). There are also some
terrific chocolate zucchini muffins, originally posted by Aiko, which I'm 
sure you can find in the archives. If you can't, let
me know and I'll send it to you. They use refined sugar, and the book uses 
egg whites, but you can substitute maple syrup
(or honey if your veganism isn't that strict) or even apple sauce.

Another favourite, although not FF and certainly not vegan, book I use a 
lot is Rose Eliot's "Vegetarian Mother & Baby Book". I'm sure you could 
adapt some of the recipes there.

Be well, Hadass
