  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat an 11 x 9-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray and line with a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, maple syrup, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the margarine, coffee, and almond extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  3. Spread the dough into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the cake springs back to the touch. When cool, remove the cake from the pan and crumble.
  4. In each of 8 small glasses, spoon 3 tablespoons of crumbled cake. Dollop some whipped topping on top of the cake crumbles. Top with sliced strawberries and almonds.
