  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F. Spray an 8-inch cake pan with oil, line the bottom with parchment paper and spray again.
  2. Into a large mixing bowl, sift together the almond flour, erythritol, cocoa powder, coconut flour, truvia, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the buttermilk, eggs, oil and vanilla and use a hand mixer on medium to combine all the ingredients, stopping to scrape down the sides at least once. Mix until well combined and all ingredients are incorporated, about 2 minutes.
  4. Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for at least 45 minutes on a cooling rack. When fully cooled, turn out onto a cake plate, slice into 16 slices and serve topped with whipped cream if desired (just add 0.2 net carbs per tablespoon whipped cream).
