This Spiced Carrot Cake is gluten free, wheat free, vegetarian, and dairy free. It is full of anti-inflammatory spices like Ceylon cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves. A healthier alternative to the traditional gingerbread.
Health benefits of the different ingredients
This cake is made with coconut oil, which is a medium chain fatty acid recommended by Stig and naturally sweetened from tigernut flour. It only has a small amount of unrefined muscovado sugar (or coconut sugar) which contains some minerals and antioxidants compared to refined white sugar. It is a healthier alternative to white sugar. Since it is still sugar, it should be limited to small amounts for optimal health.
MCT oil (derived from coconut oil) contains medium-length fat chains, which are absorbed more quickly from the gut directly into the blood and then passed on to the liver. Long-chain fatty acids, on the other hand, first need to pass through the lymph before they can go on to the liver.
Tiger nuts are small root crops that grow in North Africa and the Mediterranean and are naturally gluten-free and have a sweet and nutty flavor. It is high in fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, vitamins E and C. It has a high level of resistant starch that promotes prebiotic growth in the digestive tract and supports a healthy immune system. It also helps manage blood sugar levels and improves insulin sensitivity.

- Bake in the oven at 150°C for 55 min.
- Leave to cool or refrigerate.
- Enjoy the cake with or without the frosting.
- Enjoy this cake with an anti-inflammatory tea – see recipe here
Optional Frosting:300 g vegan cream cheese
A splash of lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla powder or honey
Here’s how to make the frosting:
- Mix all the ingredients for the frosting and put it on top of the cake or serve the frosting in a bowl on the side.
- If you put the topping on the cake and store it in the fridge, only put the topping on the pieces you plan to eat soon. Store the rest of the cake at room temperature for 2-3 days.
- As the cake is made with coconut oil, the texture can become a bit compact in the fridge and is therefore better stored at room temperature.

What our customers say
I started with Synbiotic15 only hoping to improve my gut health and was surprised my skin got better. It’s been a drastic improvement – my eczema on my back, arms and cheeks are almost gone. And I don’t get flare ups anymore. I also feel less bloated / uncomfortable. Am Super happy with it.

Synbiotic15 has been amazing, so much so, that it will now be a part of my daily routine no matter what.
Professional athlete, mum and media personality
I probably felt bloated 3-4 times a week and it was a big issue for me. Yet I couldn’t figure out what exactly triggered it or how to stop it. Taking Synbiotic15 makes me feel good. I can really feel the difference and I don’t get bloated. Which is huge for me! It gives me more confidence and more comfort.”
Presenter, race driver and mum
Before taking synbiotic15, I suffered from a painful, bloated abdomen (as if 9 months pregnant). I visited several doctors, but the cause was unclear. A food intolerance test revealed so many nutrients to which I reacted badly, it was impossible to stick to. A friend suggested Synbiotic15. Her experience was convincing, so I tried, and with effect! I suffer significantly less from bloating. I was planning to try it once, but because of the super results I'm extending it. If you have gut problems, I can definitely recommend this.
Vanesse van Eeghen
As a nutritionist – when I recommend a supplement, it’s important that the quality is as close as possible to what you can get from nature. For me, Synbiotic15 fits those criteria. After clients started with Synbiotic15, one of the first things they noticed is improved digestion and more energy. The best way to start any health journey.

Taking Synbiotic15 has honestly been amazing. My tummy feels good after having it, I’m less bloated and my energy is higher. It really makes a difference!

It’s such a big difference since taking Synbiotic15. My body feels good, my energy levels are high, and I somehow feel lighter. This is great, I feel awesome.
Host, model, and actor
I tried Synbiotic15 for two months and it’s when you stop that you really feel the difference. The probiotics calm your internals and everything becomes more consistent; I think it helps the bloating too. It’s not an instant fix but a good addition to supplements for feeling better all round, and a help with IBS.
Editor Expat Living
When you take care of your gut, you’ll get so much more energy. And while you don’t need a supplement – Synbiotic15 helps to kickstart your progress and supports the lifestyle changes you make.
