So maybe you can have your New Year's resolutions and your cake, too. This recipe from Alicia Silverstone's "The Kind Diet," a beautifully photographed ode to healthier eating, is whole grain and vegan, but tastes decadent.
If you buy raw walnuts, toast them by spreading them on a baking sheet. Place them in a 350 Fahrenheit (176 Celsius) oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the nuts are lightly browned and fragrant. Stir the nuts once or twice as they toast.

COFFEE FUDGE BROWNIES
Start to finish: 2 1/2 hours (20 minutes active)
Servings: 12
For the brownies:
3/4 cup (175 milliliters) whole-wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup (175 milliliters) brown rice flour
1/2 cup (120 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups (350 ml) maple sugar
3/4 (175 ml) cup soy/rice milk blend (or any nondairy milk)
3/4 (175 ml) cup brewed decaf coffee
1/2 (120 ml) cup canola oil
1/2 (120 ml) cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
For the glaze:
1 1/2 cups (350 ml) grain-sweetened, nondairy chocolate or carob chips
1/2 cup (120 ml) Earth Balance (or other vegan) butter
Heat the oven to 325 Fahrenheit (162 Celsius). Coat an 8- or 9-inch (20-centimeter)-square baking pan with oil or cooking spray.
In a large bowl, sift together both flours, the cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the maple sugar.
In a separate bowl, stir together the milk, coffee and oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir to mix well. Stir in the walnuts, then pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.
Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
Once the brownies have cooled, prepare the glaze. In a small saucepan bring about 1 inch of water to a boil. Set a stainless steel bowl over it. Add the chocolate chips and butter to the bowl and stir until melted and smooth.
Pour the warm glaze over the entire pan of brownies, smoothing it over the surface. Chill until the glaze has set, about 1 hour.
