This is not your traditional carrot cake thats for sure. It has an Indian influence, spiced with cardamon and coconut. It have made it as a raw cake and it was really delicious that way as well. A word of caution though, it contains dates and cashews which are both high FODMAP's foods and if you are in the beginning phases of your SIBO diet this may not be the best dessert choice.
